So I have an 04 without luggage rack and its sat a couple days while it rained. Got in it this morning and noticed my seats were wet as if I left the windows open, is this a normal issue and if so is there a quick easy fix? Appreciate any info.

I assume you don't have a sunroof since you didn't mention it, so it most likely your weatherstripping around the door has failed or otherwise migrated out of alignment. Or possibly the door itself has begun to droop down because the hinge pins are worn. In any case, if the door doesn't line up with the weatherstripping properly you will have leaks. I have the same issue myself. A temporary solution is to park so that the front end is angled down, and tilted down toward the drivers side. This will put the water somewhere other than your seat.

Yea no sunroof I forgot about that, I'll look into some hinge pins since they're cheap so I'll know they're good and check my weather stripping. Also thanks for the idea of parking downhill that'll come in handy till repaired.
