Default Wet floor driver side

I found my driver side floor very wet.

Today heavy rain and I believe somewhere leak into my car. And my vent is open and I should close vent and will stop leak?

Or else somewhere? Let me know.

Thx

My '06 did this to the rear passenger side and some in the front passenger side floor. I suspect sunroof drain problems but have yet to confirm it. For now I park on my sloped driveway with the nose downhill if rain is expected and it hasen't leaked again yet. It was parked nose uphil when it leaked the first time.

I hope to fix it soon... I understand that there is a class action suit against VW but we may be too late to get anything from it. My local dealer in Chattanooga, TN said that there is no recall or sunroof related problem with my car according to the vin... Ya, I trust them...

Open driver and passenger door and check the rubber nipple on the car frame towards the front of the door. I'm sure someone will post a picture. Anyhow, your sunroof drains are probably clogged. There is a TSB on this. Basically, take a pair of scissors and cut off the tip so that the drain is wide open.

If you don't have a sunroof, then obviously it's something else.

VW has a TSB for that issue as posted above, your local Dealer can take care of it No Charge. Just print out the TSB and take it with you to the dealer, 5 minute fix.

I found TSB said:

6007-06 JUN 07 Body - Sunroof Malfunctions or is Inoperative

That's correct?

I thought I had found the source of the leak on my driver side. The grommet for the hood release cable had a mouse nest around it. No joy though.
It poured here last night, both outside and into my car.
I don't have a sunroof.
I'm starting to think it will be less effort to build a garage than find the leak.

Also may want to remove the inner wheelwell liners and remove the dirt, leaves and debris that accumulates over the years

You may want to check the Windshield seals. I encountered that issue when I borrowed a friend's car while mine was out of service. The windsield seal was leaking and while it rained it came in down the "A" pillar.

Just a thought.
