    Exclamation Rain water leak problem into cabin

    Hi there. I have a water in my Audi a4 b5 1997. Seems like it's leaking just behind the break pedal. I unclogged the drainage in the plenum. Tray and still leaking. Any idea where it's leaking. Thank

    AC drain, sunroof drain, cabin filter drip tray, holes under the battery tray. Could be any of those.

    I fought with a water leak in that area for a while and found out the welds at the shock tower and firewall were separating. It could be the ecu gasket or hood latch cable grommet as well. A lot of going back and forth with a water hose and flashlight.

    Thanks I checked everything took out the drain grommets 2 of them so water can freely flow. Sealed the pollen filter and honey release latch. Still water can get into the cabin after a heavy rain. My suspicion is that my windshield is the culprit. I'm taking the car to a mechanic this Friday and see what they can fix this. I'll update the results to help anyone that has the same problem. Pretty much everyone who owns Audi is affected lol. Thanks guys
