I should probably open that door to see if there's still water in there.
Is that the issue?

And/or has anyone found the issue and a fix? I have the problem (noticed for a while) and only now is it really really bugging me since it rained last night, then froze over night. I couldn't open my driver side rear door! And ice was on the plastic lining as well as covering the bottom of the door itself.

Like a few have mentioned, rain itself doesn't really bother me since I open the doors enough, its the salt and ice that concern me.
