This is apparently a problem with all vanagon owners whose last name is Baker. I have this identical issue with my 85. I think it's because I park on a hill (nose up) and the water accumulates in the back of the door, away from the drains. I solved the problem by throwing a tarp over the front part of the van.

> I noticed that during rains I was getting some water in the cab of my 83.5 Westy. It was to the left of my feet between the drivers seat and the front firewall, but dash and behind dash were dry. With the front door open, I looked into the channel that carries fresh air through the front door and to the back passenger area and I see that this channel HAS STANDING WATER IN IT! My question is. Where the hell is this water coming from. I looked at the fresh air vent above the radiator and I dont see how it can come in there. Maybe it would be able to blow up in there a little when the van is moving, but the water comes into this channel even when its been sitting for a day or two. Anyone ever had this or have any suggestions?? > > > > > > Peace, JB > '66 Split Window Camper > '83 H20 Vanagon > > "You cannot simultaneously work for peace and prepare for war..."
