Question about 1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet
The roof doesn't leak, but we just had a couple rain storms and the drivers seat and floor in the front and back on the drivers side were soaked and I can see the water dripping inside at the spot where the rubber seal is split to put the top down, but I can't tell how the water is getting into the seal and the car.

SOURCE: 2001 VW Jetta Leaking Water
Th cowling let in fresh air for the heateer and defroster, Their is a drain in the bottom of the cowling or heater ductwork which allows the water to escape before going into the car. I woudl gues that the drain is stopped up..

You have to get in your car with a flash light and the door and windows closed. Have some one spray the car with a hose while you check around the door seal and the windshield coming down from behind dash. also this is a little harder but if you don't find a leak there get could be from under the car, coming in while driving. So you just have to start and check all seals and seams(under car) near the drivers side. Leaks can be a pain and a pain to find. Just take your time and you'll find it. Once you find the leak that will determine what and how to fix it.

open doors and look for drain holes try sliding a wire into holes does it go in easily? if yes they check door seals for torn of loose seal, is there a sunroof/moonroof does this leak? get in car and have someone hose for awhile and look for leaks with a flash light? if door drian holes are blocked remove panel and clean inside. have you been using a/c? if yes is the a/c drain line blocked and condensation is leaking into cabin, also the front windshield has a grate at bottom remove grate and check channel for blocked drains or leaking seal. good luck on this one of these should be your problem.

windshield seals are usually not the problem: Here's the secret: There are 2 round rubber drains that are meant to get water away from that firewall: Yours are clogged!
The solution is simple: Open the hood, look to both the left and right of your blower fan (that's where your water was coming from, by the way), check both and I promise you, they are both blocked. Now take a long screw driver and push trough any leaves or gunk in there and then take a garden hose and spray it into both holes and voila! No more water inside Cabby!
Enjoy your dry Cabrio! Cheers!
