I’m not sure how it works on the MK 1 Tiguans but on the MK 2s they’re pretty notorious for the drainage channels getting blocked and them leaking because of this. Could this be an issue on your car?

I was told by a dealer that if the car is parked on an incline and/ or the rubber channel has any resistance or blockage, water can build up on one side more during heavy rain and come in.

This was during a visit where I had to dig deep to fix a cracked leaking forward tube.

Mine's a 4 and a bit year old mkii. Never had any issue with leaking. I would think it partly depends where you mostly park. Under trees for example exposes the car to sticky substances which could get into drainage channels. I suppose cleaning might be a factor as well but I'm a bung it through the car wash type. I've never once washed and polished the car myself.
