      Looks like the seal between the window and door is leaking. Your door gets filled with water. Some water does get into the doors but not so much as yours and the drain holes underneath the doors takes care of that.
      Have you had any damage to the doors before?

      No, i have not had any damage on my doors. According to the service guys, there was some defects in the door panel plastics which they have fixed with some cutting and glues. Have not checked the door seals for abnormal leaks. Will have to check it if it is more then normal.

      Inner panels does not stop water going in. What sort of defects did they find. This does not sound good. Does this happen on all four doors?

      They said that the panel plastics had some unused holes through which water was coming in instead of flowing down. They sealed them with some resin like substance.

      Happened only on the rear doors.

      Went home last weekend and got the alignment reports. First one is at 13k and the second at 16k. Dont have the reports of alignment done at 7k and 10k kms. Meanwhile Renault has agreed to pay 70% of the tyre costs. I agreed on that as my car was at their service centre for the last two weeks. Did not want to wait for any long so settled on 70-30 breakup on the tyre replacement cost. They will be replacing the MRFs with Apollo.

      As the tyres are replaced with Renault bearing 70% of the cost, i can only go with Apollo as they have their tie up with them.

      You have aftermarket speakers right? During the fitting of these speakers something must have happened.

      No way that the inner panels have anything to do with water seeping in from the outside. These panels are only for appearance and some soundproofing but not for keeping water from running into the car.
      From the video clip it looks like the door is filling up with water. It might be an idea to remove the inner panel and splash water on the outside to see where the water is leaking in. I can only think of the rubber seal between the door and window glass.
      It does sound right to fill up holes with resin in a new car and they probably dont know what they are doing.

      I asked God for a bike, but I
      know God doesn’t work
      that way. So I stole a bike
      and asked for forgiveness
