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??
