Leaky front door


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had leak issues on the main walk-in door on the 2016 EL-II?  I don't like how the seals are not continuous throughout the entire edge of door. I'm getting a good amount of rain on the floor.

Yep, my 2016 is still good too.

I assume that you've checked the door fasteners and latch for tightness.  Other than that - does the weather stripping look to be in good shape?  Is there any sign of the door being out of alignment?

Ok, it's silly question time!  Have you verified where the leak is in the door seal?  Is it possible that the leak is elsewhere and pooling by the door?

It took me weeks to finally confirm it was the door. The weather seal looks okay. I will take a much closer look at it soon, again.

Just thought of another potential place to check - the door window!

Some blue painter's tape around that window and a garden hose should let you know it that is OK or not.

Actually, I should have said to use the tape to stick some blue paper shop towels around that window.  I'm not sure just how the tape alone would show a water leak!🤪
