condensation

Recommended Posts

getting a build up of condensation, especially so in my pop outs. windscreen and front windows dont seem to be as bad.
No obvious signs of water getting in, no wet footwells etc. Any ideas? pollen filter maybe?

Cheers

Same here... my first thought is front door card seals. So I'll be pulling the lower cards off each door to investigate- leccy window repair without resealing it in the past is my best guess.

First thing I'd check is the pollen filter. Replace if not been replaced in a long time or unsure when it was last done.

Then as mk2 said :)

Hi, I too have a build up of condensation (05 Black GTI)... I've traced mine to a water build up in the tailgate... When I open the tailgate the water can flow out though a hole in the base, but not when it's closed. Might be worth looking at? May I ask if anyone else has had the same problem, and how they solved it? The car is swathed in clingfilm ready for investigation in the spring...

Hi mk2... Huh! Guess I over stated the case with "swathed"... But it does the trick! Dry interior, and no flow out of the tailgate when lifted (and the cling film stays intact)... In store for the winter now, cozy and dry 😉
