I have a 2002 Nissan Altima and am getting water in my doors/door panels. I can't find how it is getting in them either. It is like it is coming up from the bottom or something.

Anyone have any ideas of what I can do. Anyone with an Altima have this problem???

Check to make sure the rubber conduit is seated correctly in the door jam up front. Also make sure your weatherstripping is good.

its only when it rains so it is water. when I open my door on the plastic part where you can put your foot is where there are alot of little puddles of water. like it ran out of my door panel.

took my car to the carwash to find out where the water was coming from. found it and am sealing it up with RV GOOP. Hope this works well.

the best thing to do if your getting water in your doors --- to protect your speakers is to buy those plastic/foam baffles that fit behind your speaks like a cup.

I have those and am going to put them in when I reinstall my comps (had to have them replaced under warranty do to one crossover crapping out, and they sent me a brand new pair). the water that really was getting me mad was the water getting between the door panel and door, where the front of the speaker is. So this should clean that up for me. I am not putting in my new comps until I get this dried up.

If you have any sort of midbass coming out of them, then those foam baffles like to make lots of noise. Find the leak before it starts to rust and eat your door from the inside.

How did you determine the spot that was leaking?

I went to the carwash and as soon as I pulled out I opened my door and just looked around the foam weather strip. and it was getting in underneath it, between it and the door. It is held to the door with pins every 6" or so and inbetween the pins the water is able to get through. so now I am sealing it completely to the door and then will drive through the carwash again and test it out.

However I am not putting my Hex's in until it is all dried up.

Did you have your panels off when you went through?

I think your problem lies in water getting in your door via the window jam- by sealing the lower part of the door all you are doing is sealing the outlet

yes it is the door jam where water is getting in. there is a weather strip that is suppose to keep the water from penetrating further and it is not contacted to the door good enough. All I am doing is glueing it down better basicly. Looks to be doing the job so far.

Hmm...I'm still trying to picture this. Is the water coming in through the sides of the door rather than past the window weatherstripping? I have the same problem and haven't been able to identify the source. Its been raining like made here in LA and the inside of my door is just soaked with water...

My problem was that water was coming in, down through the door jam (where the door henges are) and then getting past the weather striping. Not along the window where usually most water problems occur. But if you open your door and look along the side where the henges are and where the door closes to the car is the weather stiping I am talking about.

well the passenger door does not have a problem with water at all so I installed my comps on that side. Ran all new wire. The shop that installed my first set just spliced into the factory wire. I didn't like that too much so I ran new wire through the door into the cab and back to the trunk where I mounted my crossovers this time. That way I can get too them easily and adjust the tweeter level if needed. Here are a couple pics.
