Take it to a dealer and get them to check it for you...

Or if you wanna try it yourself, start pulling off your interior trims and while sitting inside the car with a torch, get someone to spray the outside with a hose so you can find where it's coming from...

LOL, damn it, if i take it to a dealer, it will cost me money. DAMN T_T

i put tissue just then all around the door so i can at least see later where the water is coming from...

tested it today.. got someone to spray the hose from outside... it looks the rubber around the door. theres one at the top that doesnt seal properly. anyway , fixed it... tried the hose again and no water went in. hope wont happen again....

the other thing, whenever it rains, the water still get stuck on the door sills, on the black plastic bit.... is this normal but??

Yeah, a little bit of water will get inside there, nothing to worry about...

i investigated more just then... and found that the water gets in from the back of the car T_T...

i repainted one side of my car like last month on this INSURANCE APPROVED place. it cost me $425.15 just to paint a small scratch just under the fuel tank.

to do it, they needed to remove both of my tail light... somehow they didnt put it back properly..... so me and my friend tested it again with spraying with the hose near the tail light and the water just flow into the back of the car.....

when i checked the place near the spare tyres... theres big puddles of water there... and i can see some rust on the metal T_T i hate those guys....

what do guys think i should do? ask them to fix and repaint the rusty bit? because what they did is just so unacceptable...

ARGHHHH!

Did you have the car repaired through your insurance or just a cash job???

Take it back to the repairer, ask to see the manager and complain about the water leak...

Alright.. just a final update on this guys....

After i went to the repairer... they discovered that the leak was from the RIGHT hand side of the car....

They claimed that they did not touched the RIGHT side... which is TRUE... as we fixed the LEFT side of the car......

when they opened the right hand side, they found that the internal side of metal was damaged.. it looks like it was pushed in....

its true, i can see how the metal abit bend....

so they opened it etc2... theres a hole on the car body.. a really big hole.. u can put ur finger in it...

so we get it fixed and cost us $600 T_T

so yeh :)
