The drain holes are located at each corner of the sun roof carrier. you will need to open the sun roof all the way to be able to see the drain holes. the drain pipes run down the A and C posts of the vehicle. [A post front] [C post rear]. the easiest way to clear them is to use a flexible piece of cable pushed down from the top. if they are not blocked, the pipes may be off on the under side of the sun roof carrier. this usually happens if somebody has been doing panel work on the vehicle and forget to reconnect pipes. to rectify this you will have to lower roof lining. pipes just push on.

Check them and clear them with compressed air every six months. If you live in an area with lots of 'whirylgigs from trees suggest you get a Car cover PDQ. Volvo regards this as a maintenance problem and WILL NOT fix this by saying its a defective sunroof. They expect you to have car cover, carport or garage when owning this car and living near trees.

How does water get into the rear footwell of my 2002 3dr Polo


have you a sunroof ? the sunroof has drainage tubes that run from each corner of the interior sunroof down the inside of vehicle and exit so water should escape out from sunroof well, if one of these tubes is blocked,split ,out of position it could easily let the water into the vehicle ,if you dont have a sun roof there may be a poor hatch seal letting water through the boot area into foot well , is the spare wheel in the boot area ? if so check if there is water there as well, keep me posted if you wish

DOES MY SUNROOF HAVE DRAINAGE PORTS THAT NEED CLEANING?


all sunroofs have drain pipes, usualy 4, one on each corner, they usualy run down the A pillars at the front and poke out near the kick panals by the footwell. the rears often run down the C pillar to the vicinity of the boot.
open the sunroof up and carefully pour lots of water around the drain gulley of the sunroof, you should see it pissing out onto the floor at the front and rear on each side. make sure water goes down all 4 corners of the sunroof and check. Pipes can come of at the roof. also the drain grommets block up.

common problem on passats also is the pollen filter housing letting in water (under the scuttle panel beneath the bonnet. on left hand drives though, this fills the passenger side only (left). not sure on RHD which side pollen filter housing is on , but when they leak the water fills up inside the car on one side only, which can flow front or rear depending on car being parked up or down hill.
the seal between the pollen filter housing and the bulkhead often leak, if you press down on the plastic housing you may hear the seal squelching water. there was a recall on this, so it may have been done.
If the comparment under the panel (where the battery is) is filling with water, there is a drain grommet under the batter that also blocks up sometimes, causing it to fill up and flow in where it shouldnt.

I have a 2005 Monte Carlo with a sunroof. For the past few weeks, the carpet is soaked, there is some water on the driver's seat, and the headliner is wet on the driver's side. I have sealed the roof seams...


the sunroof drains in the foremost front of the sunroof channels is a very likely place to start. blow through them with compressed air and see if they are clean. if you park under trees or other shrubbery this is very likely. if the channels are not cleaned regulary with each car wash. this can happen. give this a shot. cheers

Sunroof leaks into interior, cannot find drain on bottom of vehicle to clean


Open the roof and look in the front corners for small drain holes.Blow them out with air pressure.They usually have a drain in all 4 corners.You dont say if its a factory type.Parking in places with tree dropings are not good for sun roofs.

Floor carpet in rear is wet.


If it is not the drainage holes from the sunroof as suggested above, then it is almost certainly the seal at the bottom of the door nearest the wet patch. Remove all plastic interior door trim and you will see a rubber seal running around the lower part of the door which prevents water ingress. With age, the seal leaks and water enters the inside of the vehicle at the bottom of the door. It is easily resealed with a suitable sealant from an autoparts' shop. About one hour's labour. Good luck.
