Question about Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

2006 VW Jetta has a water leak somewhere cause yesterday we had a pretty strong rain storm and both of the back floor boards were full with 1' to 2' of water. Went to dealer and they said it was the door gaskets that failed because it rained so hard and so long. I think this is BS. Have you any suggestions? Help!

They could be right but check your cowling.. it could be clogged up with leaves and pinestraw.....causing the water to come inside instead of draining under there car

Sounds like the distributor cap is cracked and allowing moisture in. I would start there.

SOURCE: rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain

do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?

SOURCE: My 2002 VW Jetta leaks on the passenger side every

i was a water leak specialist for vw and mainly the leaks are from around the rubber at the windshield as well as follow down through the antenna the 2 fuses under the drivers dash are 45.00 each 20 years ago im sure three more than that now ...use a garden hose and start low and after a few minutes raise it little by little until leak is found as well as a 2nd person in the vehicle with a light to look for the leak you may caulk or of that nature using tape to ensure a nice straight line on the windshield and not make a mess sometimes it even comes from the fenders and so look carefully and raise the hose upwards going slowly allowing the water to penetrate the area in which it finds its way in

After replacing the plugs, wires and coil,my 2001 durango 6cyl is still not working properly.when it rains ot will not start at all,but once the rain dries its fine.


Same problem as some of the vw golf and vw jetta cars. Water runs from the wind screen down that small holes in the bonnet. Somewhere there is a fuse box or computer box that gets wet. Seal that box with denso tape or cover it with plastic that you replace every 3 months or the dealer of the car can help you seal it. Be strong.

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Headlights won't turn off


Trace which way the water went down ,,, a major plug around one of the front foot wells could be full of water ... also now you need to check all the fuses. Push on the carpets front and rear floor to see if it's not flooded out under the carpets. Some cars have computer modules under the front seats.

Water leak on fwd and back passenger side after every rain storm


pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.
