Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Volkswagen Polo 1.4 Twist 2004 keeps getting wet in the footwell behind the passenger seat, I have taken it to a garage(Volkswagen specialists) 3 times now and they keep saying the problem is with debris around the pollen filter under the scuttle panel but no matter how many times they clear it out it is still getting wet. The mechanic is now saying if this doesn't work it could be a leak from the front windscreen. This has cost me 250GBP to 300GBP so far with no end in site. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car

My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.

SOURCE: Pool of water in footwell behind drivers seat.

Is the water only in footwell behind driver seat? If yes, then have you checked the weather stripping around rear door (assuming that it is 4 doors)? My brother had the same problem, and behold it was the stripping around the door. If you find that is the cause, standard household weather stripping added to door frame will work well.

Cant find fuse box 1999 VW polo

For 1999 Polos, they are behind the mini glove box/compartment underneath the steering wheel in the driver's footwell. Open this glovebox, then remove the cover by lifting it out completely. The fuse box is in the gap behind it.

My 2004 1.4 Polo keeps getting really wet inside, and today i noticed mould on the back seat where everything is so damp. Could it be a clogged drain? If so, how do i get to it?

lift the spare wheel out of the car there is a drain plug under it.

also its more likely to be leaking through the rear lights or rubber seal around the doors or boot. I have a golf was leaking from the back passenger door. and the front passenger side. back was the door seal and the front was a drain plug that was clogged up lift the bonnet and look around the bulkhead/ thats the part closest to the windscreen where the wipers are loacted, look right down it for any leafs etc.

Seat Alhambra 1996 1.9L water leak drivers footwell

the water can travel along surfaces or beams in the car so you cannot tell where it is actually leaking. in my ford windstar water leaked in right over the fuse box. it ran along a cross beam from the passenger side. if it has those plastic strips they use to go in between small gaps in the metal... like along the roof where the roof is and the metal of the sides joins it is likely they are leaking. best to take a garden hose and have someone inside the car with a flashlight on the floor looking for leaks

Leaking shell

I had exactly the same problem about three years a go on a 96 passat (just before the model change).

It turned out to be the grommet where the bonnet release cable goes through the bulkhead had pulled out. I pushed it back in and plastered a silicone sealer over it and it has been fine since.

However, a couple of months ago, I noticed that the inside of the car was very damp again. The carpets and foamy stuff have all been taken out. This time, it was just the drivers footwell that was sopping wet. The grommet around the bonnet release cable is still in place. I've dried it all out and we've had a couple of torrential rainstorms since then, but no water has come into the car so I'm stumped.
