Door Top Stud Water Leak?

The Door Tops on my D-90 leak. It appears that water is coming in through the door top stud holes. I converted to the stainless studs and quick nuts last year and I am wondering if there should be some kind of seal between the door top stud and the door mounting holes. Right now, There seems to be a lot of space for water to get in.

My door seals are fine and water is draining out the channels as it should but way too much water is dripping inside through the stud holes. What should be there to stop the leaking?

Thanks!

Thanks. I had checked out your post. I'm curious about the cut stud washers. I currently have no washers on my door studs. I'm trying to imagine where these go? Do you have a pic of the washers installed or can you give me a better idea on where they go? Also, where did you get the rubber washers for the studs?

Thanks!

The cut washer goes between the stud nut and the door.

The rubber grommets were sourced at a hardware store.

I see. I'm using the quick nuts so perhaps that's why indoor have the washers?

The reason for the split washers is to allow for drainage if water gets past the seals. Without drainage, water pools inside the bores and...well you know the rest of the story...
