Official "water leaking into car" help video

I figured since there are so many posts about it that i would make a video showing everything that has been discussed about water leaking. Granted i dont show how to unclog drain tubes, since i didnt have to. But im sure most educated people can figure out how to once you know where to look. Maybe we can make this a sticky somewhere? Hope it helps out

there are 3 tabs on each wall, the 3rd is hard to see and get to. its in the very rear almost up against the fold down seat. if you're short like me you will almost have to climb in the trunk to get good leverage to pull it out

repped! Great informative video, it's gonna help me out that's for sure. The drain tubes are so much easier to get to in a 5th gen than a 4th gen though... jealous.

Lol @ big ass cup of water.

This is also almost exactly the same in 4th gens so this would be useful to both 4th and 5th genners.

Great video man, you got rep

Thanks for the video. Did the water test and found out my rear drain tubes are clogged. Took the seats out to dry them out and removed the drain plugs in the trunk. Have to replace my taillight gaskets also. Finally, no more wet seats.

I did the water pour and it only came out the front. But I looked at the tubes in the trunk and they were clear, and I've pulled out the black drain plugs in the bottom of the wheel well. So at the moment...no water.

Where do these tubes typically get clogged anyway? between the sunroof and the sides of trunk?

i found it in a hardware store near my house. you can pick whatever thickness you want, buy it as a sheet of XXX square meters and cut it as you wish.

I'm at a dead end with my trunk leaking issues. After watching the video One of my hoses was loose and I was 100% sure my problem would be solved. I put the hose back in and I still got leaks. I went to the next step and ordered the taillight gaskets, installed them and I still have my leak.



Whats the next step?

Did you pull the black piece that the tubes were attached to? Mine was full of debris. I also had a live bug in mine. Spray wd40 back on the black rubber piece when putting it back in, it will make your life a lot easier.

Whats the next step?
Take out the trunk side linings.
Grab a flashlight.
Take a friend to the DIY car wash.
Flip down the rear seat back.
Have him/her go into the trunk from the back seat with the flashlight.
Wash your car while they shine the flashlight in the trunk looking for the leak.
