I understand there are 4 run off points for the water two at the front and 2 at the back.

on my golf i had a problem that the front one was blocked (off side ) if you open the door and look where the hinges are there is a black rubber nipple this was blocked.

I understand the back ones are underneath somewhere - if you do a sear on golf mk4 interior leak you should get the answer to your problem - I hope this information is useful.

2000 VW Golf. My windows and sunroof won't close (no noise, no trying, nothing) but everything else seems to work fine. Any ideas?


Fuse blown - look for the one with the key symbol it powers windows/locks/interior lights/sunroof operation. Then work out why it blows...could be anything on the circuit so check a lock isn't sticking on/off when operating the central locking.

Water in rear footwell


Look in the front door frame, there are drains from the sunroof that are possibly plugged.
Squeeze the plastics nipples to see if water or dirt/debris comes out.
I took a 10" piece of metal shirt hanger and ran it up the nipple and alot of **** came out. Solved my problem.

Good luck

Water leak


if its into the front passenger footwell i had this too, inside thwe door closure where the hinges fix is a small rubber hose that funnels water from the sunroof down the apillar in a tube and out, if thats blocked it will run into the car also it could be coming in throught the window seal inside the door and out just inside the door closure area.

Floor carpet in rear is wet.


If it is not the drainage holes from the sunroof as suggested above, then it is almost certainly the seal at the bottom of the door nearest the wet patch. Remove all plastic interior door trim and you will see a rubber seal running around the lower part of the door which prevents water ingress. With age, the seal leaks and water enters the inside of the vehicle at the bottom of the door. It is easily resealed with a suitable sealant from an autoparts' shop. About one hour's labour. Good luck.
