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

best thing to do is get a friend to hold a water hose get in the trunk with a flashlight and see if water gets in. if not go inside the cab of the car and have your friend run water on the roof of the car. if it has a sunroof clean the drains.

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.

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.

The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
