  • Water slooshing sound passenger side

    I do find it strange that in this day and age they can't make the door seals watertight. I've had all sorts of cars since 1976 from a 1966 Austin 1100, in the 80's I had Ford Escorts and a Fiesta and in the 90's and 00's VX Carltons and Omega's and now in 2014 a Siggie, and the only one that has ever had water collect in the door is the bloody Siggie and that's the one with the most electronics in the door!....but apparently it's not a warranty issue!!!??GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

        My rear passenger door was the same, pulled the plug and about 3 litres of water came out. Oddly enough that was the only door with a plug in it!!

          I've just checked mine all but one of the rear doors were fine. The door was completely blocked up and had about 3 to 4 litres of water in it.



          I'm thinking about removing them altogether as even the other doors had lots of dirt on the grommets.

            I think I will Pete, bit of a bad design to block like that. Never had that on any other cars I've owned.

              well then it seems the answer to this problem is to remove the bloody plugs and bin them(or put them on fleabay).this is assuming they have been fitted in the first place,or the supplying stealer has had them away

                  Just checked on mine and they are not fitted on any of the doors so looks like they have stopped fitting them I know the 63 plate had them this is a 09/64 and it doesn't

                    I removed my grommet as well after discovering a pool of water in the front passenger door when i removed the door speaker.

                    I bet is the water that damages the speakers whenever someone say their speaker is not working.
