    Thread: Water leaking - Passenger footwell

    1. 05-28-2009 06:36 PM #1
      The Treg is in for the 50,000 mile service and to address some minor warranty items. We noticed over the weekend water dripping from under the dash in the front passenger footwell.
      Given that we weren't near any rain, it has to be coming from the air conditioner.
      Anybody have this issue before?

      You're lucky that you are still under factory warranty. extended does not cover water leaks Found that the hard $400 way

      So, would the factory warranty cover all the cost for this? Up to and including any carpet cleaning that may need to be done?

      Factory warranty - yes (unless the dealer is being difficult).
      Extended - no. Even the RealDriver Platinum that I have did not cover it.

      Hmm - called VW Customer Care and they say this is a "maintenance" item so not covered under the factory warranty.
      Problem is due to leaves and such clogging the drains.

      Had the same issue on mine. Have you tried to use the rear wiper. I had water in the same place. Turned out to be a loose conection where the washer hose comes thru the fire-wall on it's way to the rear wiper. Hope this helps
