Hi all, i've just bought a Yaris and the passenger side front and rear crpets are soaking wet. Anyone had the same problem or know why this is? All help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Is it a 3 or 5 door ?

If a 3 door the plastic lining behind the inner door panel may be damaged. This lining stops any water in between the door skins from getting in the car .

Yeah it's a 3 door. Just been to local Toyota dealer and they said they'd never come across this before but would sell me a new door rubber for 80!

It may not be the door rubber !!

It it probabily the plastic sealing lining behind the inner panel. One of my previous cars had the same problem.

If you can remove the inner panel and see if it is damaged you may be able to reseal it or replace it. It is simply a 'polythene sheet' which is stuck ( sealed onto the door frame ).

If I were you I would check that before buying a new door rubber.
