Has anyone seen or heard anything similar to this before.

I noticed whenever I park on a slope I get a damp patch under the black lower trim on one of my rear passenger doors, i.e. this bit...



Investigating further, I found it is full of water. Just prising it away a little from the door with my thumb about a pint of water poured out...



It hasn't rained for days, and all 3 other doors are completely bone dry. There doesn't seem to be anything obviously different about that trim to the others, no gaps etc

Has anyone removed one of these trims before? I can't see how to do it other than pull it off but don't want to risk that in case it breaks anything.

Suggestions?

We have a QQ now nearing three years old
The front near side door always leaks a large amount of water on opening the door after a period of rain.
My dealer says it is normal for the door to hold the water in until the door is opened ,but will not say why the other 3 doors do not similarly hold water.
It seems it is just the poor build quality of Nissan that has different requirements for different doors.
In buying Nissan we get what we get,a product with poor build quality , it's why they can sell a car with all the "extras" at such a cheap price.

My better half had a Fiesta that had a mini flood from both front doors after it rained and this too was parked on a sloping driveway so please don't put it down to Nissan build quality. The OP also mentioned it flowed from the plastic trim and not the door itself, so it looks like this is "holding" water. As a suggestion, how about using a stick-on spacer between door and trim at one end and see if that helps at all. Not ideal, but if it solves the issue...

Yes it's the trim and not the door. I proved this last night by pouring water down the window on the other side of the car to watch what happens, there are two drain holes inside the door (under rubber flaps) and the water comes out of those a few seconds later.

On the side with the drips, I did the same test and the water came out of both drain holes as it should.   

So it's definitely water just getting stuck in behind the trim. I've got some LS-X sealant somewhere (a bit like vaseline), I'll dig it out and try squeezing some in between the top of trim and door.

I had this too a few months back, huge amounts poured out when i prised open a gap when i spotted dampness on a dry day. It was only the one door for me too, rear drivers side door. Just checked again today and its dry - i assume it was blocked drainage holes that i cleared when i cleaned it up after draining it.

My trouble is the also with the dealer/Nissan, they are saying that on some doors they hold water until you open the door , but not on the other doors.
I can fully understand water entering the door and then coming of the drain holes in the bottom when door is opened, but why do Nissan insist this is not consistent to occur on all 4 doors.

It looks like me prising it apart to let that flood of water out in the first post may have been similar to yours and I've somehow unblocked it as it doesn't seem to be holding water anymore.

Thanks for all the replies.
