Can anyone help, my rear seats and boot carpet seem to be gettings wet. I have looked at the rear wash to see if this is split but it seems ok and squirts water fine. As far as I can tell water is getting in either via the rear window or the boot seal. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to sort it??

Thanks Neil

This is drivin me mad now [8o|] Stripped tailgate and the washer pipe had popped off slightly, clicked this back on and sorted that. The head lining is bone dry, no water in the spare wheel well and no leaks through window or lights. Under the rear seats is soaking and also now the rear passenger side footwell. Has anyone else come across this??? I'll be part exing it if I can't sort it [:mad:]

If it was the door seal or the seal on the panel that hold the window reg would this make the rear seats wet?? I've ordered new rear light seals from VW just to make sure its not them and I'm goin to remove my rear bumper tomorrow to check the seals on the air circulation vents behind them again. So old_no7 if your doing nothing tomorrow.....[:O] lol
