Default 2018 accord Rear door water leak

The Rear door seems to accumulate water. I brought it in for service and took pictures along the way.
Water pool.

the dealer is re sealing the door liner with black goop.

Still not fixed 😑
Water comes from inside the door panel and leaks between the plastic and metal door frame.

Just a little update: the dealer re glued the door liner with some black tar wich all that does is keep more water inside the door and it still leaks. This really sucks and am sure it is due to a bad trim piece. I am not looking forward to contacing the dealer because it took an hour of back and forth just to get them to remove the door panel, they say its normal thet you open your door and a waterfall comes out 😐

I’m having this same issue with my new Accord. It’s a design flaw. The weatherstripping on the outside of the windows are cut too short and that allows water to run down the window channels.

Most owners will not remove their door panels so this problem will not garner corrective action from Honda anytime soon. My dealer said the same “it’s normal”. I contacted Honda USA and opened a case. We’ll see what happens. My biggest concern is damage to the components inside the door over time.

Very disappointed with Honda for this major oversight.
