    I found a drain on each side of the door. I unplugged then and it's O.K. now.

  • Anonymous Mar 27, 2009

    I have a 1999 Passat and I have been told that the leak (water completely filled in passenger side front and back) was caused from the Sunroof. How can I clean out the drainage tubes and where are they. I have located the ones in the door, but thats all I have found. Where are the others located.

    Thank you

Carefully check the rubber gasket around the glass. Sometimes some debris (leaf, pine needles, etc) get caught between the seal and glass, allowing water to 'wick' inside. Not sure about the Jetta, but my Honda has a drain that sometimes plugs up with debris and goop, causing water to stay inside, sometimes dripping inside as u go around a corner. Best way to fix is to blow compressed air thru drain hole to clear. Last, check around sunroof and roof itself where they meet. Any damage to seal at roof, or torn rubber? If anything looks like it might leak, u can seal it w/ caulk. Check your home center for caulk that works on windows (exterior), it'll work on the car.

Open up the sunroof and try to unclog the drainage. You will see this from the inside of the ML by opening the whole sunroof and stickin your hear thru. On the drivers side you will see a drainage whole similar to the passenger side. Mine did the same thing and unclogged it with a straw. ljsloan@gmail.com

2002 leaks on passenger side floor board


That is the sunroof drain hose. Cut the tips off with a razor blade on the driver's side also.

The rear drains are underneath the car inside of the wheel wells but don't clog as often as the front ones.

IF you are leaking from the sunroof in the front passenger side, you can remove the A-pillar cover next to the windshield (right side from inside of car) with a hex wretch, which is under the little plastic cover) and make sure the tube connecting the sunroof rain drain on top is not kinked or broken or not connected. Simply pour some water slowly down the drain on top with the sunroof open to test it. My was "somehow"kinked and I was able to fix it. There is also a NHTSA service bulletin #SI-B51-30-08 for 2003 BMW X5. If the tubing is not the problem, I would call BMW dealer and see if they fix the problem because of the "recall". Good Luck!
