    Hi All,

    My uncle currently has a V reg VW Golf 5 door 1.6 but seems to be getting water ingress from the drivers door somewhere, which is leaving the drivers foot well soaking wet and the water is running to the rear. My initial thoughts were the plastic membrane behind the door panel has been punctured but on pictures of the door panel I have seen online I can’t see one.
    Has anyone else experienced the same problem or is aware of what the issue is and how I can go about resolving this.
    Your assistance is greatly appreciated !!!

    Common problem, its coming in through the pollen filter. So check it out.

    Comes in the doors as well, the fix is remove the trim and seal round the inner frame which holds the window regulator. Do all 4 doors mate.

    Other thing it may be, which I have seen from my experience is, between the door and wing (by the hinge) there is a rubber parts with a hole on it that will drape one way. This is a drainage route for water from the roof to come off. Some people run a cable through and block it, others turn it upside down out of curiosity, without knowing its function and end up with water now sipping into the footwell rather than straight out and down the outside body of the car.
