    Water in passenger footwell

    Hi everyone. I've got a 57 plate Passat Estate and in getting alot of water in the passenger footwell. Yesterday I took the plastic trim off and lifted one side of the carpet up. I hoovered up the water and dried the remainder of it with a towel. With the carpet up I sprayed the windscreen, passenger door front and back, roof rack, engine bay and wheel arch and no water came in at all. Since yesterday we've had some light rain and the footwell is flooded again !! Any idea what it could be? I initially thought it was the mesh cover on the fan but i sprayed alot around that area and no water came in.

    No never found the cause. If it's coming in at the back check the door seals. Few times I've had the back chair getting wet when we've had heavy wind and rain.

    Is this your 57 plate Passat Estate from you collection or are you trying to fix this problem on someone else's?

    Does it have a sunroof as the drain pipes get blocked with rubbish and an drains inside the car?

    I had this same problem on my 08Golf estate, turned out to be a small hole under the windscreen, the plastic trim that runs underneath and collects the water to stop it entering under the bonnet. I put a small squeeze of clear silicone in the hole and all fixed, no more water.....
