It's been raining a few days non-stop here in Atlanta GA. My recently purchased (about four weeks ago) 2008 Taurus X is parked outside for right now. I pulled out of my driveway and heard a large amount of WATER sloshing that seemed to be INSIDE the door. Thankfully it wasn't in the door. But was still strange. So, I moved/pushed out the forward corner of the large outer lower door trim (closest to door hinge at bottom of door) and water came pouring out. So hilarious. What a design flaw. See my video for better description. I have repaired, resolved, and updated many things on this car that might interest some of you who are working on the same vehicle.

Clear silicone caulk along the top. Thin enough that it’s barely visible up close and invisible from afar.

I won't be that ghetto. But I did simply insert a tiny rubber "bumper" in the front corner of each door. Barely noticeable from any angle. Problem solved.

Good call. Tiny rubber bumpers aren’t “ghetto” at all.
