    Water collecting under windscreen

    Hi there
    I'm sure this is a bit of a design fault.
    Whenever it rains, or I wash the car (A3 sportback 2.0 TDi) a pool of water forms in the shallow plastic channel under the passenger side windscreen between the bonnet and the windscreen itself.
    Could I drill a small hole in this to disperse the water or would the water flow onto something inside the car or engine compartment.
    Iknow this does not cause a real problem, but it just looks annoying seeing a pool of fly or leaf filled water on my nice Audi : )
    Thanks for any assistance

    Chris

    Mine too. I just wipe it away with my hand into the drainage channel by the nearside A pillar.

    None of my previous cars have collected water here though!

    I wouldnt drill. Looked at mine and running the length down to the front along the inside of the wing it was filled with dead leaves etc, cant really see them at first, but tried to get most out. Will see if this works, worth a try first before drilling!

    Just been and had a poke about under bonnet
    There is a clear drain hole under drivers wiper arm but nothing on passenger side where water collects.
    Neither is there any sign of an escape route for water collecting there.
    Guess its an Audi oversight I'll have to live with, as I dont want to poke a hole through the plastic cover willy nilly.
