Default Passenger Side leak

My new 2017 z is also leaking on the passenger side, the seat-belt is wet after big rainy days. It is currently at the dealer, they are replacing the door seals, which I think is more of a guess than the actual cause. I will forward the pic / info about the panel and rubber seals for the clips.

Check out 2 posts above (#14), that is the cause of the wet seat belts.

Door seals on both the driver and passenger side have been replaced in my car, along with the grommets / rubber seals on the clips mentioned in post 14. I have just picked the car up today from the dealer, so I will have to monitor if this has fixed things. I'll update after the next big rain.

Picked my car up from the dealer yesterday.

The dealer did the following this time.

- Disassemble both side B pillars body trim, trunk trim, seat belt assembly

- Confirmed water leak at tail gate wiring harness seal on both sides.

So it appears the leak was the grommets / wiring from the body of the car to the hatch (by the hinges). Extra sealant was added to the grommets where they attach to the car.

Hopefully this fixes things, I dont think there is anywhere else the water could be coming in thru.
