Everybody must try this! Remove the flap then try to put it back in its place. Im going to buy a new one in future (just in case). Here is a video I found, it shows how to remove the flap https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzXmsgNP2Eg&app=desktop
Its working for me!! But im still testing (I guess im going to start to use my magnetic charger more often)
"thanks" if I helped

***Update to the problem, and SOLUTION:***

Definitely its the flap. I bought one from here (they are original) http://www.witrigs.com/sony-xperia-z2-replacement-parts and finally after more than 40 days!! it arrived and now my z2 is 100% waterprof again! Im very happy now. The flap stays in his place!

I recomend you guys to buy this to solve the problem, at least it helped me.

In case you buy, I used swiss post, it take a long time but it was secure. This was the first time I buy someting from another country (Im from Mexico, btw sorry for my english hehe)

Remember, here is how to remove the flap https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzXmsgNP2Eg&app=desktop

Hope this time I really helped! Good Luck!

PD: Now im going to use my magnetic charger so I dont have to move the flaps, I suggest you the same!**

Thanks, must be the flaps have been twisting too much and it was trying to twist back or something which made it push off.
Taking it off and putting back in fixed it 100% for me, just ordered a magnetic charger though. Dont wanna remove and put it back in every month.

Thanks so much for your post, I used a wall pin and de-dusted my flap and it no longer wants to keep opening.. It was quite surprising how much was actually there :P
Thanks again!

You could buy a new one from internet (ebay, amazon, etc) or clean it

Buying a replacement isn't so easy, well it is, but 99% are copies unless they have been pulled from old phones now. Most if not all the reviews condemn these replacements as poor quality and unfit for purpose. I have recently lost my micro USB cover and am waiting on delivery of a "copy" port replacement. Cost just under £5 for a pair of covers. Could of got some second user official ones for £7 but I thought I'd take the risk with the copies.

As for cleaning I just use ear buds/Q tips to collect the lint/dust.. anything sharp will only compromise the water proof nature of the seal.
