Hi - just noticed a little leak coming in thru the front passenger door mounted tweeter speaker (the small corner speaker near the window). Anyone had this problem and found a cure ? Looked at the door seal, and don't think it's coming in their, so my best guess at the mo is that the water is coming in at the wing mirror. Car is a MkIV. Thanks for any help.

Dude, never heard that one before. Why not sit in the car and get someone to pour water around the door mirror and see if the water filters through?

there is a seal between the mirrror and the door.o get at it you need to remove three screws, one in the side window vent hole, one behind the tweeter(clips off), and one behind the door seal.

Check the condition of the seal, if it's not damaged, cover it in vaseline and replace it.

It should stop your leak

good luck

Thanks for that - exactly what I wanted. Don't suppose you've got a page from the service manual showing this procedure ?

Had a similar prob on my mark IV, the prob wasn't the door mirror but the window seal on the door. this was letting water through on to the plastic door surround which then run down the trim to exit from the tweeter. the interior trim needs removing to access the seal securing bolts. once these have been removed the seal can be removed. it apears that a non setting mastic was used at the factory. once this was cleaned off and replaced everything was fine. watch the securing clips for the interior trim they break easy.

Hey Wacko - thanks for the info. How did you discover this ? Is there a tech bulletin out, or just a garage that knew what to do ? Kinda weird it doesn't happen on all the doors though.

had the same prob on both doors. tried the door mirrors but they still leaked. took all the door trims off and sat inside while the car was sprayed with a hose. just a matter of following the water after that.
