Try running a hose on the driver's door window to see if the drain hoeles in the driver's door are plugged. Also check the drain holes in the rear window and trunk lid drains. If one of the drain holes is plugged the water will seek the next easiest way to drain (which might be to the iside of your VW Beetle.

Sunroof drain clogged


You may be able to clear debris out by using a long thin rod and pushing it into the openings on the front of the sunroof drain channels the pouring some water in to make sure it drains properly sometimes the drain pipes become disconnected inside the headliner but try clearing the obstruction first and see what happens.

Hi George, It sounds as if the the sun roof drain pipes are blocked. There should be four and the are fitted into the roof pillars draining downwards at each corner. A flexible rod can sometimes be used to clear blockages, but care should be taken not to damage the rubber hoses. Regards John

The beetle has also been recalled for a sunroof issue, I found this website:-

http://newbeetle.org/forums/questions-issues-concerns-problems-new-beetle/43357-new-sunroof-recall.html

Where it says:-

"Sorry if I put this in the wrong place but I just got a recall notice for the sunroof drains on my bug.
It's SERVICE ACTION 60A7/S9 and pertains to all NBs from 2001 - 2007 equipped with sunroofs. It's also for certain Jettas, Audi A4s, Golfs, GTI, and Passats. You'll probably get a notice but I wanted to let people know just in case, for some reason, they don't get the notification...maybe because they're not an original owner etc.

VW will clean, modify and inspect the sunroof drains and tubes. There's also a form to be reimbursed if you've had to pay for any problems in the past".

Which means that, if you or your car didn't go to this recall, then VW will sort it all out for you for for free. Its a manufacturer's problem.

Just pop in to a dealership and ask, if its been done, you're back to square one but its worth a crack................. Good Luck.

However, here's a website which shows you how to service your sunroof.

Puddles after rain, overheating light comes on when starting out


If you have a sunroof, your drains might be clogged. Open the front doors and look for a rubber spout pointing down at a 45* angle. Milk it a littleand water might come out. I cut mine to open it up a bit so this wouldn"t happen again.

Red warning light?? With the car cold fill the coolant res. so the level is in between the min and max lines.

Do you have any water stains around the sunroof? If not I doubt that is your problem. If the sun roof is not leaking it is most likely the seal on your front window.
