Where are the sunroof drain holes?

Recommended Posts

I have an ‘02 which is leaking like a sieve and I think it’s the sunroof drains that are blocked.

where do the drainage holes come out on the bodywork so I can try and clean them out?

front ones are inside the door check under a rubber circle.

rear ones are under the bumper.

fronts are prone to leak more than the back, take care as if you pull the rubber off the hose you will have to take the headlining out.

Cheers for the reply. I’ve had a look but, I can’t see any obvious drains in the a pillar.

I've removed a plastic cap/cover and there’s nothing there. 

Do you mean the rubber protector that has the wiring in for the door?

Ah. I’m guessing that the previous owner may have messed around with it? 

We've only had it a couple of weeks but, with all the rain, it’s like a fish bowl!

What will I need to do to resolve it?

take the arch liners off at the front, clear the crap and hopefully retrieve the rubbers.

if not use golf mk4 ones.

roofliner out to access the pipes and make sure they are clear.

all easy stuff.

Ok. How easy is it to drop the roof liner down?

It looks like the sun visors and handles need removing then it can drop down? 

Is it held in place by clips?

remove sunvisors, clips, handles, little centre sun visor.

remove the light and then you will see how the sunroof switch panel comes off.

removing the headliner from the sunroof is literally a yark it off the round clip bit job if i remember correctly.
