Two areas to check. The sunroof has several drains that can clog. Open the sunroof and look in the four corners. You will see small holes. Try flushing water down each one with like a cooking baster or spray bottle. If that won't clear a clog use a long wire but with a rounded end. You could cut rubber parts if the end was sharp. The second area is in the door panel area. Each door should have drains in the bottom. If they are clogged it will overflow into the interior. Also if that door has been serviced and the moisture barrier was not reinstalled correctly you will get some water leaking inside.

This is an old post, but I just stripped my car apart and found the water source.

I took apart most of the interior and found an easier solution when I pulled the front quarter panel. I found the part that's leaking water, I'll post some pictures later.

IF ABOVE DOES NOT WORK, LIFT THE CARPET AND DIRECTLY BEHIND FRONT PASSENGER SEAT - ON THE ACTUAL FLOOR - YOU WILL FIND A SMALL SUMP. IF IT IS NOT FITTED CORRECT, WATER CAN COME IN FROM UNDERNEATH ESPECIALLY IN WET CONDITIONS.

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000


I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

2002 volkswagen golf gti has a leak in the passerger foot well


hi from uk a common problem with leaks into foot wells are as rain runs down w/screen and inti the bulkhead area below w/screen accesable with bonnet open ? this water runs to either side to a drain hole and onto road via a rubber hose attached to these drains the bottom of hoses are flat so as to let water flow out but not inwards ok so far ?? now leaves and dust etc are sometimes carried to these drains resulting in eventual clogging at bottom and top of hoses so water collects in pools eventually finding its way into car ? take a look at these and ensure hoses are clear ??

I have a vw golf mk 4, 1999, 2.0 GTI, 5door. whenever it rains the back footwells get soaked i have got a sunroof but i am sure waters not coming in from there i think it could be the door seals. could...


I understand there are 4 run off points for the water two at the front and 2 at the back.

on my golf i had a problem that the front one was blocked (off side ) if you open the door and look where the hinges are there is a black rubber nipple this was blocked.

I understand the back ones are underneath somewhere - if you do a sear on golf mk4 interior leak you should get the answer to your problem - I hope this information is useful.

Interior Carpet Getting Wet


It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.
