Yup you heard right there was a almost concrete hard packed in wad of dirt behind the plastic protective barrier, protecting the door and firewall behind the front tires! It's possible that all gls,gt and elantra in the 03-06 range have this as I have seen nothing unusual or broken about my particular panels. We'll it's worth looking into all. Ha! WEIGHT REDUCTION BRO!!

Yeah, that's one of the few design flaws that we've discovered over the years. Someone called it "guck" and the name stuck. It's where the drain from the roof gutter runs out. A small passage just needs a leaf to block it, and then before long you have a concretion of deritus. I was always entertained by blasting a hose at the area and seeing how long it took for the water to come out clear.
