Are there any drain holes in the interior of the two doors? I have the two door cards off and I am trying to make sure that any water that might get in there has a way out; I cant seem to find drains in either side.
Are there no drains?
I thought cars usually had drains or something to let any water out.

I've had my door cards off many times, I don't think there's much in the way of a drain hole. There's the large vents at the end of the door, in middle, but I don't think there's anything at the bottom.

Certainly open to learning more if others have more info.

with the amount of water I once had in my doors i'm pretty sure there is none.

I ended up drilling a small hole to let the water out

There are drain holes in the base of the doors, built in to the inward-facing flange where the inner and outer door skins meet. They’re like long slots where the flanges don’t quite meet. Look right at the edge of the base of the door from the cabin side, below the seal.

They can block with debris, or if someone has injected wax in the door cavity. Use a piece of stiff wire to poke out any blockage.
