Water in 1/2 hard doors

I'm getting water inside my 1/2 hard doors on my new to me Jeep whenever it rains When I open the door, water comes out of the drain holes on the bottom.

Besides this the Jeep has no leaks.
running 1/2 hard doors with 1/2 soft doors with slider windows and a Best Top soft top.


The only place I can see that could allow water is the 3 holes for the upper doors. If anybody has had this or knows of a solution I would appreciate the input

Thanks

If the water is draining out the weep holes at the bottom, I'd say it's doing it's job well. You may want to make the weep holes larger, as I did, but do be sure to keep them cleaned out.. I ran half doors for years.

It's only draining when the doors are open. Is that normal? If it rains overnight
when I open the door in the morning water comes out.

I would think it should drain when the doors are closed too.

I have checked the holes and they are clean.

I am a bit surprised that are leaking that much... Mine only took on water during monsoon like rainstorms... In short, I don't know if what yours are doing is normal ..

Those 3 holes should be sheltered when you have the door uppers installed.
My doors do the same thing but the only time I've noticed it is when I was the Jeep without the door uppers on.
If you're seeing this happen when you have the uppers installed, I would look for another opening that is allowing water into your doors, or check your door uppers for leaks.

Check to see if your side mirrors are tight and that the rubber gasket behind them are in good shape, When I got my jeep they were loose and letting in some water. Tightened them down, haven't noticed a water issue since.
