Hi I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP I HAVE AN AUDI A4 1.9TDI AVANT ON A 2000 X PLATE IN THE PASSENGER FOOTWELL UNDER THE DASH IT IS DRIPPING WATER INTO THE FOOTWELL ANY IDEAS? REGArds..


If your car has a sunroof, one if the sunroof drains runs down through windshield post down through to bottom of the car. If it gets plugged it will back up into car. If it's coolant you're finding (sticky and smelling like coolant) your heater core is leaking

Leaking inside the car everytime it rains


There is probably a drainage hole underneath the cowling under your windshield wipers. They're supposed to allow the water to drain out into the wheel well. See if the passengers side is plugged up. Collected water has to go somewhere and it will always find a place.

Ford puma 1998 Drivers and rear footwells filling with water.


There could be a number of places the water could be coming from does the leak start from front and work its way back?
Try the following -

. A faulty seal at the bodywork joints below the reinforcing panel may allow water entry in the area of the side trim panel and bulkhead.
Check the area for faulty sealing. If necessary, seal the bodywork joints with sealer.

start with the easiest.

During heavy rain water flows over my feet! Where does it come from??


most vehicle have a rubber drain plugs on driver and passenger side under the carpet. keep in mind you don't want to get lots of water under your seat because the computer mod sit right under the seat, if it gets wet it will cost you big buck to replace. good way to check it, next time when you get the next oil change or get the car up in the air, ask the mechanic to look at the rubber drain plugs at the bottom of your car and see if it still there and in good condition. pulling and lifting the carpet its not good idea and lots of work. If the the floor drain plugs looks good then check sunroof if you have one, check the seal around the roof making sure its has a good seal; it may not have a good drain. The last resort will be the fresh air duct from outside in front of the car next to front windshield, which is leaking through the unit. good way to also check the problems is take the vehicle to the car wash using high pressure water gun and spray in it fresh air duct for minute or two and see if its leaking through. hope that help some good luck

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.

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)
