Water leak near bonnet release lever

Post by iggy » Tue Jun 11, 2019 4:40 pm

After the last couple of days of near constant torrential rain that I think we're all experiencing at some point this week I've noticed a few drops of water inside the car.

It looks like it ran out from near the bonnet release lever, right hand side of right foot , if that makes sense?

There's not been loads just a few small drops , its happened twice now and both times after heavy rain.

I've felt round the carpet and floor mats and everything is bone dry so it's not running down and accumulating anywhere.

I've read the panoramic roof drain hole stories and wondered if this could be related?

Due to the weather I haven't had the roof opened for a few days though.

Has anyone had similar ?

Thanks in advance

Identical water ingress I had on my first rejected car, eventually filled up passenger footwell, as per link. Open roof and feel the pop up wind deflector, mine was soaked, that’s how I knew it was the roof. There is obviously an issue with certain sunroofs, need to get to a dealer, feel your pain.

Wow that's a lot of water and a worry, must be a build issue at the factory as to why some have issues and some do not like this.

I started reading this late last night when I was in bed and it was chucking it down, I started to feel sick, but woke up this morning and it was the first thing I checked and fingers crossed it was all bone dry.

I work for TPS and had to go to Volkswagen today, and while I was in the workshop there was a 19 plate Allspace in there and the car looked like just a shell, it was totally stripped, all seats dashboard and roof lining, and sunroof was out the car because of a water leak, it wasn’t a pleasant sight at all :(

I have the very same problem! I have recently picked up a new 19 plate Allspace and it was leaking from the roof and my car seat was soaking. It has been into the dealers to get fixed but I have noticed a lot of moisture since then. I am just waiting on the next rain shower to see if it happens again.

I have a heard from a mechanic at a different dealer the fact there is a faulty issue with these cars at the moment. He quickly tried to change the subject as if he had said something he shouldn’t have!
