    On both sides of the car water is somehow getting between the roof and the headliner, mainly around the sun visors. Heavy rain is certainly enough to make this happen, but over a long enough period of time, light rain is also sufficient. The two front sunroof drains work well enough that water...

    Hello, I have a 2003 Passat 1.8T. My aux air pump goes on while car is off and cycles on and off all night and drains battery. I am disconnecting battery every time I turn car off. I’ve read posts about the 373 relay. Mine is inside dash behind steering wheel but can’t find the 40 amp fuse. Any...

    I recently found water in the little well in the back passenger side side of the trunk. Removing the bottom trim of the trunk opening and the retainers holding the carpet trim on the sides of the trunk, allowed me to pull back the carpet to access the drain hoses on both sides. The drain hose...

    I have a B5.5 and somewhere between June- July of last year water seemed to get under the right front passenger seat. I discovered this until August. It was massive. I will come back and write about it with pictures. The good news it is doable, with some patience, time and a few tools...

    I searched for a couple days and did pick up some good tips especially the co-ax cable! I snaked it down both front drains and after 6' I figured it was not attached to the A pillar drain flapper valve (AKA nipple). Removed both front "nipple" valves and could only see the detached red hose...

    So the rear passenger side of my wagon has started to fill with water every time it rains. Did some reading on here and general consensus is that the drains are blocked. So I rip into the rear section looking for these so called drains. Apparently accessible behind the CD player ect. Not a damn...

    I have removed the entire carpet from my 2000 wagon 4 motion. I plan to post detailed instructions for those that need them (I'm sure its been done here but I plan to drive the car with the passenger seat only in the car and conduct some tests to determine where water is entering the cab/...

    Hi guys, Been having problems with water pooling in my passenger side boot well of my B5.5 saloon for a while now and put it down to the sunroof drains being blocked as this seems to be the common issue when water is there. So checked my sunroof drains were clear and not blocked and then poured...

    I know there are several drains on my 2002 B5.5 V6 Passat. Is it necessary to manually relieve the water build up (if any) and is there a thread on this forum that gives details on how to use these drains? I park in a garage and so my Passat is not necessarily exposed to a lot of precipitation...

    I just bought a USB charger for my '00 Passat. I left it plugged into the lighter socket and now my battery is drained just enough where the car wont start. Lights come on but it wont turn over. Its been parked for about 4 days. I had no idea it would be draining when nothing is plugged into...

    My VW mechanic and I have been working on and off over the past year to try and determine why my front passenger compartment gets flooded with water every time it rains. I've done some research here at PassatWorld and we've determined it's not my sunroof drains (already clipped long ago) and...

    It's definitely Fall here in the Pacific NW. I've had my '03 GLX V6 variant just under a year. Last winter I got introduced to Passat water ingress issues thanks to plugged up sunroof drains in the front doors...which I discovered one morning after a rain when I went to start my car and couldn't...
