    Water in the door

    Hi guys

    I have heard a swishing noise before and assumed it was a half full fuel tank, my hearing is not what it should be.
    Just now my wife sat in the back and heard this noise too, also drops of water coming out under the rear door. After moving the door a bit it is obvious that the door has water in it, presumably from the window seal.
    So I see no obvious holes for drainage, can anyone comment please?

    Ok, I managed to get a better look this morning and if you pull the seal at the bottom of the door, two or three retaining lugs come out of the holes in the bottom of the door. Followed by half a bucket of water in my case. Pushed the window seal back down, it may have come up when the kids opened the rear window (rarely used, since I lock it). It might have stuck to the glass a bit on the way up.

    Remind me tomorrow and I will check to see if this is a known issue.

How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I don't seem to have very many known issues there but it is a Skoda not an Audi...
