Rain water coming in when driving with window slightly open

Anyone else notice that when it rains the water from the wipers comes in when your side window is open just a crack...

Seems the water channels on the windshield work until the water hits the roof channels and instead of following those goes to the side of the door and falls in.

I'm on a waiting list for weathertech to market these for a c-hr. I really prefer them because they (usually) don't require an adhesive... They just fit snuggly into the window channel. Anyone else who might be interested should contact them too... Maybe that would expedite the development!

Those eBay ones are definitely good enough and they look great. Having had experience with window visors that get stuck on with the adhesive, I can safely say that they hold up well over 150km/h

Replacing the weather stripping isn't going to do anything for this issue. It's not seeping in from the door frame itself, it's coming from the window itself. The rain guards would be perfect for that. That's essentially all you can really do.

How about a picture of this channeling. Not sure I understand where the problem is.

This sure seems like a problem Toyota should address.

It's a common thing with a lot of vehicles so it's not something I think they would do anything about. A lot of cars/suvs/etc. will have this happen to them.
