Anyone else having issues with rain getting through the door seal? It doesn't get into the car when door is closed, but as soon as you open the door, water drops get all over the seat.

Dealer can't seem to replicate the issue with a hose, but it happens pretty much every time it rains.

Tale as old as time. Early L322 models were known for this issue. Water migrates between the inner gasket and the outter gasket. it so bad on the early L322s LRNA had to issue TSB for dealer to get off their butts and properly align the doors for a tighter seal.

as far as the dealer goes a hose is not the same as rain. Your dealer is a flippin moron. They need to stick a nozzle on a ladder or something pointing up to replicate rain falling on your Rover and let it run for an hour or so. I'll bet THEN they will see when you open the door water has been trapped and falls on the seat.

All my Range Rovers except the current L405 have leaked to one degree or another -- this seems to be not actually a leak but a design flaw that ours water on you when you ope the door? If that is right there is probably nothing to be done, except to complain to LR,

Cheers
