No, it’s not Morton’s Salt. It’s my 1995 Buick Century 4 Door. It has 86,000 actual miles. 3.1 V6 Auto. Never wrecked. Everything works.
Problem: In the right front door there is a map pocket. It is molded into the inside door panel. When it rains hard here, which is fairly often, this
pocket fills with water. I’ll done the dollar bill test on the door molding, and it more or less passes, and the door vents at the bottom are open,
but all that notwithstanding, there is no sign of waiter running inside the car. Even if the upper door molding was leaking, the water would have to
get from there to the pocket, at the lower edge of the panel. The pocket fills very predictably, but there’s never a water stain or water mark
inside the car.
Q. How does the rainwater get into the door pocket from outside?
