    no doubt its the heater core on those. could be leaking windscreen with the rain FNQ has been getting.. but i'd bet its the heater core.

    Ifs it the heater core should I be missing some coolent? Some1 told me the gasket around the door speaker it's common but I thought I'd check with other vx owners b4 I dismantled the door card as there's not 1 single scratch inside the interior

    If it has A/C, check the drain pipe isn't plugged up.

    a/c drain pipe is on the passenger side on VT-VY models if I recall correctly

    also the fact that there is no mention of a stink or smell
    says it is not the heater core (coolant reeks!)

    but on VT-VX models on the drivers side, it is known for the
    water to get in 2 ways.. thru hardened and cracked windscreen glue
    or water running down the firewall in thru one of the glued firewall/floor
    joints

    dry it, get a hose and start testing

    Also take the door trim off and check the seal behind it as I have seen water leaking through those.

    as there's not 1 single scratch inside the interior
    got to check though mate, may not be a scratch but there's water in the cabin.
