Thumbs down 2016 f150 water in door.

Has anyone else had a problem with their f150 doors holding water? I took it to the dealer and they said the screens in the door drains got clogged and is kinda common. They said it is probably because I park under trees... the only thing is that I live in an apt complex and my truck stay under a carport all the time. I have a company truck so it doesn't leave from under it mon-Friday. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and what you were told.

I have 2011 Silverado and water has been getting in the doors since day one

It has been a different door every time and trees have nothing to do with it.. Parked out it the open no cover for 8 yrs. When water stars sloshing around after a rain I pull the plug and sometime 2 gallons comes out

I've got an '05 F250 that does it if it's parked outside on a slope during a good rain. Craziest thing I've seen. If it's on flat ground it's cool but with any kind of incline I come back to wet sun cider and floor mat on the driver side.

Not in my F150, but my work Tahoe gets water int he doors. I finally pulled the rubber strip off the bottom to expose the drain holes better.

Straw that broke the camel's back on a new f250 I traded off last week was rain pouring through the oh **** handles. Floorboards and headliner was wet but no water in doors.

Tony, at the bottom of your door, behind the rubber moulding, there is a small paper clip shape/size hole. That is your drain. There may be a plastic rectangle insert over it. Pull that out if you want. Water is going to get in your door. No way around that. Everything that slips past the window and where the side mirrors connect, go down the door. The drain will be at the back corner of the door, that way on acceleration everything drains. Check it out and see it you notice anything there.

I had pulled all them but nothing came out. The dealer said all the holes were clogged but I feel like that is BS

No. Truck had been in shop more than out in the 11 months I owned it. Rain came inside and I was done.

One of the guys I was hunting with when it happened drove one for work and his had the same leak. Where it's leaking could very easily end up in door.

Without seeing it I'm tempted to say yours was leaking in the same windsheild/door junction area is mine just came out in a different spot. But I don't know why it's holding water. How'd you know it was? I didn't even check mine

I had the exact same thing happening and the drain hole was clogged from dirt at the lease. I slid a zip tie up in there and ran the hose over it and worked the dirt out. Now it is fine. There was enough water in there that you could hear it slosh around when you closed the door.

When I was driving I could hear it sloshing back and forth like I have a gallon jug of water in it.

I've never heard of this issue with a truck before. I hope I continue to be lucky.

They said they got a gallon of water out of my door and it was ready for pickup. My gf went and got it and before she got out of the parking lot it was doing the same thing. After them getting an a** chewing they gave me a rental and getting it looked at again

Just got this from my brother yesterday. Not sure if it will resolve your issue but it is related to a water seal in the door and the latch.
