Door seals blocking drain holes

Anybody have a solution to this problem yet? 2016 Envision.
The rubber door seal that is affixed to the frame is blocking the actual door drain holes. After each rain, i have to open my doors and let them drain!

Dealer offered any solution???

Must be a heavy rain or some rigid, frame mounted weather striping as mine has been in a soaker rain all and only slightly weeps from any of the tow holes.

Make sure both bottom holes are not blocked.

Thanks Norm, yes the drain holes are not blocked. The rubber trim/moulding on the door seals is blocking/sealing these drain holes when the door is closed. Door accumulates water with rain and i have to open the doors after a rainfall to drain them! Does your Envision have the rubber moulding on the body frame below the door opening?

Yes, my 2016 has the frame mounted rubber. You may have to investigate as to whether the weather striping is installed correctly.

@walker, how about some pics to illustrate exactly what you mean?

Same problem with a 2017, and nope, no solution from the dealer . I have had four different people in service (all claiming they have never heard of this) promising to "talk to the GM rep" when he comes in. One guy from the body shop even took a bunch of pictures of the area in question. Nothing. No feedback. I have, at times, drained a half-cup or more out of each door after a rain - as much as a day after a rain. To make matters worse, here in central VA, I have had a couple of occasions where there is a rain at night and then the temperature goes below freezing. Next morning, a rattle starts in the bottom of the door from a chunk of ice when it pops loose. Not real happy.
