My wife's 15 plate 3 is getting water under the rear passenger side carpet. The water appears to be getting in at the bottom edge where the door seal is joined see picture. I doubt this is where the water initially enters and suspect it's either finding its way behind the seal at the top edge of the door or it's getting in to the outer part of the seal which is perforated, then running down the inside of the seal and finding its way through the joint in the seal.

Has anyone else had the same issue and if so how did you cure it?

I had a similar issue on a TF that was caused by a defective seal, it took me about 5 years before I eventually tracked down where the water was getting in and was only fixed when I replaced the seal

Any help is appreciated.

Update. Suspecting it was the door seal that was causing the issue, I purchased a new one on eBay. It was advertised as being for 2019 model but the doors are the same size.

It was a pain drying under the carpet as the front passenger seat can't be completely removed due to the seat belt pre-tensioner wiring being soldered to the main harness, instead of a plug and socket. I suspect this was done to prevent SRS warning lights when the seat is moved as happens regularly on the TF. This is how it came from the factory.

To date the new seal seems to be doing its job, time will tell
