Wet Door Panels


Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Engine (type, size, modifications): Stock 3.2L; Total Mileage: 25000; Transmission: Manual;

I have a 2000 Boxster S that I do not garage. I drive the car several times per week. The carpet on the lower part of both door panels is dripping wet. None of the moisture appears to be getting inside the cabin. I remove one door panel and the door was dry inside and behind the panel, so it looks like the capret is wicking the water from the inner door seal. Is this a known problem? I did an Internet search and found one other report of the problem from someone in the UK. Someone replied that they had heard it was due to the door seals, but this was not confirmed.About a year and a half ago, I had the plastic rear window replaced by an upholstery shop. I know the top was removed to replace the window. Is it possible a seal was not reinstalled correctly when this was done?Thanks.
