I have a '97 Jetta GT that's leaking water onto the passenger area of the floor.
First off I can say 100% its not the Sunroof drains as I have checked them and they flow excellently and no water comes into car even when I pour several cups worth of water through.
I took the rain guard out and although it had some leaves under there which I cleaned it still leaks and the leaves where 100% dry so seals are all working well on the raingaurd.
its also leaking from the lower door hinge on both the driver and passenger side(but this just drains to the ground) and the driver side footwell does not get wet.
The leak gets worse when I have the front end pointed up a hill(on incline) its almost non existent on flat ground(heavy rain overnight results in a few dribbles) when on a hill its a steady large drip.
Some pics of leaking area, the actual leak is dripping onto the yellow spunge looking square of insulation. Also all of the pics where taken while it was currently raining heavily(I was soaked after being out in it for 5min).
Does anyone know where the drain pictured in the bottom left of the first pic goes? is it prone to clogging?
Water seems to be flowing correct direction here...
Obviously been a small leak for a long time judging by rust...
