Question about 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan
Posted by Anonymous on
The sun roof has 4 drain tubes located in all 4 corners. The tubes are about 3/8 of an inch in diameter. There could be several problems, check front drain tubes for blockages dirt, spider webs etc. If they look good you can test them, open roof and pour about a cup full of water down the drain hole slowly, Water should exit behind the front wheels. If water is not leaking outside, its is leaking inside. Rears, you have to pull the headliner down slightly to see, you might have to remove trim or assist handles to take a peek. I have had several dark colored trucks where the drain tubes shrink from the heat and let go. Sunroofs do leak, but they call it a controled leak, The next big problem is the carpet, what you see ontop is nothing, there is gallons of water under the carpet, Do not let the dealership just vaccuum the carpet on top, the correct way is to remove the carpet, replace the under pad. This is very important, it is either recyclied rags or foam. Also everything has to dry out mostly the wire harness and modules. The carpet will be ok once cleaned, it is made of nylon. Good luck, Kirk fc6fc

Sounds like a major weather stripping issue, being an 09 I would hope something like that would be covered under warranty. Mold is no joke, it can make you very sick
