Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Hi, I've had this problem and spent hours with my Wife watering the front scuttle area with the wipe mechanism removed. I hope at last I've narrowed it down to an area where the brake booster to attached to the firewall. Rather than take it out I've used a cleaning gun on a compressor and fired heaps (and heaps) or black soundproofing tarry solution down around, in and about the right side as you look from the front. Certainly at this stage the water running inside has decreased markedly and I've given it one last blast this morning. I'm optimistic this will cure.

Look infront of the screen and their is a drain pipe ,you will most likely have to take the wiper arms off to remove the plastic trim then underneath that is a well with wiper motor in and AC intake if fitted UK model ?? i doubt it .then look for the drain hole and poke it out no doubt full of leaves from all the trees they have in the roads their

It is probably leaking around the brake servo..the factory seal begins to crack and water drips into the foot-well via the brake pedal etc....What I did was to remove the wipers, plastic cover and washer bottle...shine a torch around where the brake servo joins the body...you will see cracks...some folk renew the seal by removing the brake servo...i'm lazy...so cleaned the seal with methylated spirit...the bought some thick wax oil that you brush onto underneath cars (looks like thick black tar) I gently heated some with hair dryer...makes it runny..then poured it all around the seal. After this cooled I then brushed more over the top. 3 months on now...all fine and dry ;)
