Hey all, I have a mk5 rabbit, and I am getting the infamous "Clogged Sunroof Drain" scenario. I have a slight bit of water on the drivers floor, passenger side drain seems to be flowing just fine tho. It's going to the dealer tomorrow to get fixed, as I tried the "fishing" method using weed wacker string with no success.
So the drain is basically a piece of tubing that runs from the sunroof, to the inner fenders. Anyway, this is what I dont understand about these drains.... If the tubing gets plugged up, WHY does it leak in to the interior? My thought is that if you have a piece of tubing, it would build up to the top with water, and simply not accept any more water. So what causes it to leak in to the interior, and not just stay in the hose?
