You may have one or more of the rubber bump-stops missing ?? Or a grommet ?? However , theres two drain holes ..one at the front , under the bottom roller hanger , and a corresponding rear ..

i had the same issue. I've replaced the bottom roller + the door seal. with a quick alignment, it seams to have fixed the problem.

I have a small leak coming through the locking barrel on the sliding door. Might be worth checking that. One of those jobs I'm yet to fix, currently wedged some cloth under the mechanism to try soak up most of the water.

Have you carpeted / covered the door?

I noticed the other day water dripping in the top of the sliding door, where I stretched the carpet over the top edge of the door, it wasn't allowing the rubber seal to grab the door tightly and so water was soaking through the fabric and getting under the seal.

I have the same problem. Have you fixed it? If so what did you do?

Cheers
