      Anyone have any extra insight on this?

      Is there a site that has the instructions for removing/replacing the panoramic roof sunscreen?

      Coincidence? Unlikely.

      Pop out those little "Airbag" tags on the A & C pillars...there should be a little screw behind them. Sight unseen, I'll bet you one is missing (fell behind the pillar...

      Based on your description, it sounds like the coupler between the right rear drain on the frame on the pano roof. You've got a water trail; had the same thing on my driver's side.

      Agreed 100% on the roof drain tubes as the likely source.

      Still, I'd check the cabin air filter (passenger side under glove box)...if that's never been changed, it'll stink.

      Can you share a link to the water ingress suit? I'd love to see if my VIN is included as I've had it since new.

      The system VW has for connecting the drain tubes to the sunroof frame is utter junk. Why add a 3rd piece that gives 2 points of pot'l failure when all that's needed is a direct...

      noticed you have a pano roof?

      Have you checked for leaks? I'd think with impacts at front and back that whole roof unit might've shifted a bit...ugly.
