Default Leak on passenger window.

I was getting a car wash every week, and never had a leak problem. Now, (after a long road trip of over 3000 miles), I have water coming in my passenger side window when I drive through the same car wash. Also, there appears to be more wind noise on my passenger-side door now.

Any idea why this would suddently get worse?

Hi, it's probably just the rubber around the doorframe. This tends to get worn down after a while, where the top end of the doorframe hits the rubber. At least on my car.. Or it could just be loose. Try pulling it gently; if it's not stuck, just push it until it is. That's if the water is coming from around the door. It happened on my car, and I thought the water was coming in around the window.

Default Car washing

Hi, try washing it by hand. You could ruin the finish if it only ever gets auto'd. Plus you could see exactly where the water runs in if your're doing it your self. As to the leak, I agree with Paal, it could be the seals.
