TOPIC: Water in door rubber

Water in door rubber 3 years 1 month ago #31

I have a 2006 XC90. I have a problem with water rushing out of the door when I open it. Does it store up in the rubber seal? Does anyone else have this problem?

I'm not familiar with the exact configuration of the door seals on an XC90, but it certainly sounds like you may have a leaking window seal. This would allow water to drain into the door which could cause damage to the speaker, window motors, door locks, etc. Best to get it checked.
I want to die like my Grandfather did, peacefully in his sleep.
Not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

Welcome to the New VCOA Forum and yes the XC90 is known for collecting water in the front doors.

As I read through the below links I see some true solutions to the problem and also a description of additional problems stemming from the water intrusion.

Please let us know how your fix progresses.

Thanks.
