Where it attaches at the top is there suppose to be a hole allowing the water to run through? mine seems to be just solid top material or however you want to say it. I know my leak originates back there somewhere and the water runs underneath everything and puddles under seat so first guess would be the tubes then. Im trying to clean them from underneath but the wire wouldnt curve enough to go very far up it.

alright i was slightly correct i guess on the pass side as soon as i poured slightest bit of water it poured out the front corner of the "pouch" drivers sid i think is just clogged. For the pass side though do i need to take it to a top place and have it looked at?

the pockets behind the doors are for the drains, where they end up ripping

the whole car leaks, new they leaked.



sometimes you can park it and it might not leak, but most of the time it puddles behind the seats.



water also comes in the door

Yes, with some sort of grommeted apparatus attaching the tube to the fabric.

to clear out tubes just use compressed air. we have to unclog people's ac drain tubes all the time.



thats the only advice i can provide on this topic.
