Default Leaking Sunroof :[

Well we had a rainy weekend and Sunday morning I hopped in the TDI to grab some coffee and noticed my passenger side head liner was wet.



Its at the dealer now. They said it already had the recall patch job done previously and the the drain tubes were clogged and they were checking to see if my extended warranty was going to cover the repair and a new headliner. Well after a two hour wait I got a text from the dealer that it would be covered.

Dropped mine off a week ago for warranty repair.

Had leaks down both D-pillars.

Haven't heard anything back from them yet.

Make sure to do a test drive with someone from the service department on bumpy roads to verify no rattles or squeaks from the headliner re-installation.

I found the headliner on-line for 550 and the A-pilar is another 150 or so.. both had staines. They said they were clearing and modifying the drain tubes.

Considering I paid less then $1500 for a 48mo/100,000mi extended warranty, just this repair is paying for itself. I'll find out what the total cost would be and post up.

Going on 2 weeks at the dealer.

Last word was they are replacing:

1. Rear drain lines
2. Headliner
3. Power sunscreen
4. Subwoofer from flood damage.

I must say the 2019 Jetta SEL loaner is a giant leap forward from the previous Jetta.

I would verify with them that they snipped off the check valves on the ends of all 4 drain tubes. If not, have it done or do it yourself. All the new parts are it risk unless that's done.
