Leak through door panel
So yesterday I came to my car and I saw that there was a small pool of water that had accumulated and looks like it came through the door panel on the rear driver side door.

Anyone else had this issue? Thoughts on what the issue could be and if dealer should fix?

Thanks

Yes I suffered this last year from delivery, and in the exact same place. The problem was the sealant wasn’t fully applied to the small section of the “signature” square on the door. Took the dealer 5 attempts to fix but now a year since the put sealant on the signature bit and also on the pegs that hold the plastic trim / square onto the glass. Also on mine the window seal that scrapes the outside of the glass was distorted/ damaged in two places and was replaced but that didn’t fix the issue.

Pentland Stirling now knows how to fix it J
Maybe suggest to your branch that they contact Stirling and ask how they repaired it on my car in 2020! Epsom Green Tdi300 County - on 15/07 I handed on to a new keeper after 21 years in my care

Will do Tim, I’ve been singing it’s praises as well, saying how the 23MY build quality seems better than my 21MY 90.

There was no water this morning but after driving for a bit it started to trickle.

I haven't had water on the armrests. But I keep finding water on the wrong side of the seals at the top of the door. I can't tell if it's pooling outside the seal and when I open it, it falls in. Or if it's actively leaking with the door closed.

Could it be that it's entering at the top of the door and then down around the seal to the lowest point, then running through the armrest/panel?

Yeah I get that on the doors, doesn’t leak into the car though and so far I’ve only got a leak on the one door that I very rarely open. 23MY 110 D250 XS Edition, Hakuba Silver

110 is in today, good news is they’ve identified the leak and where it’s coming from, they had ordered a seal in preparation for the job but it’s the wrong one. Bad news is the one that it does need is on back order Rolling Eyes 23MY 110 D250 XS Edition, Hakuba Silver

This is another one to add to my list. There always seems to be water on my seats when I open the rear Riverside door and the drivers door.

You'd think after two years LR would have solved some of these issues. Rolling Eyes

It’s amazing how much water/ snow falls off the roof onto the seats when a door is opened in wet weather. I’ve given up having the Acorn fabric on the seat edges cleaned to remove the stains - just opening the windows on a wet day is enough to get more water marks on the seat fabric. It’s been happening since delivery of my 2020 First Edition - I was told that the seat fabric has since been changed but it appears that people are still suffering the same problem on even recently delivered cars. Epsom Green Tdi300 County - on 15/07 I handed on to a new keeper after 21 years in my care

When I ordered the 21MY 90 it was part leather, but by the time it was delivered LR had changed the seats to leather due to owner complaints of seat staining. But yes it’s amazing how much water runs off the roof, I’ve had many a drip down the back of the neck. 23MY 110 D250 XS Edition, Hakuba Silver
