Hi all. I noticed while vacuuming that the drivers side carpet was saturated directly under the floor mat. Essentially it was soaked in the area surrounding the vinyl "pad" on the carpet. I checked the area leading to the fire wall and that was dry because my first thought was it was somehow leaking through the windshield. Passenger side is fine and I didn't spill anything. I soaked up what I could but even after 9 hours of airing out, it's still pretty wet. I did go through an automatic car wash (I usually don't) last week but I didn't notice anything unusual. Again, it's strange because it's contained to the area around the vinyl "pad." Any thoughts?<p>Thanks,<br>John

Re: wet floor (jmmartin155)

Sounds to me like the sunroof drains are clogged and the car wash was a overload for them.<br>Try to clean out those drains with some water/washer fluid(alcohol based) and compressed air.

Open the sunroof and look in the front corners of the roof tub, you cant miss them.<br>You can also pull the interior A-Post panels out to access the Clear drain hoses so you can see your progress.<br>Dont really worry about the drains in the rear cause they rarely clogg.<br>Happy Draining <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (854T5)

Thanks 854T5 for the info. So if they are clogged they must back up and overflow into the interior, otherwise it must drain behind the front mudguards or something? <p>Day two of airing out the interior and it's still pretty damp. Galvanized steel so I don't have to worry about rust, right?<p>Thanks again for info.<br>John
