When I wash my car, I dry it off, I open the trunk to wipe in there... and there is white soap suds up by the wires/hinges. What's up w/ that??? IS there no protection / rubber molding to keep the water out ??
I've also found that I get a lot of soap suds on the lower door channels or whatever you call them -- especially after a high-pressure wash. Opening the doors reveals a steady line of suds along the bottom of the door openings on the body... anyone else notice that one or do I have 4 faulty door seals?
I haven't noticed that, but I do flood the piss out of her when I am rinsing. I use one of those spray wands for gardens, takes 3 seconds to fill a gallon bucket so I know it has flow, just a very gentle flood. I flood the crap out of the channel on top above the doors, the mirror housings, all door seams, to make sure there isn't any soap left.
This is a common characteristic for hatches. I do the same as mghte3 and rinse well in that area. I get the soap residue around the door sills though and have to take a clean wet mitt to it before I can chamois.
For the hatch area I use a little cordless leaf blower that removes all the water instantly, that area ia a real PIA to dry.
