Water in space wheel space

Post by Mk69 » Sun Jan 19, 2020 8:37 pm

I went to get my first aid kit out today. I keep it I. The space for the spare wheel. The space had water in it about 2cm deep. I’ve taken a video of it as pics didn’t show it clearly. My windscreen freezes on the inside ... now I know where the water is coming from!!
Has anyone else had this problem?

That sounds like an awful lot of water..!.. Definitely need to get the boot seals checked..

Not had reason to check but will now. I know older vw sunroof cars had drain channels run through the boot area and if blocked could cause water in boot area. Obviously not a t cross issue but thats a lot of water to collect in one place. Id be checking the floor to see any other sources. It suggest running in and collecting at lowest point .if it was a major condensation issue then the seats / everything would be damp.

Id be looking for a point of entry.... tailgate. Lights,, missing bungs in floor... anything

The cars still in warranty, take it back, let them sort it out! And ask for a courtesy car while they have yours. First check and write down the mileage, I took my 2018 Polo for a small job to be done and they put 40 miles on the clock. And the small job had nothing to do with the engine.

Update, just had the car back for the second time and they said it was a manufacturing fault where there were holes in the seal towards the top of the bootlid.

Storm Denis will tell if their repair has worked
