    2008 A6 Avant Sun Roof drain plugs?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Pool of water descovered on the drivers side floor mat after a heavy rain. My car is going into the shop Monday I was told to use painters tape around the perimeter of the sunroof to prevent water going into my vehicle, I did that but after last night's rain the driver side floor mat was very damp, obviously the blue painters tape performs poorly.

    I really like this car it's my daily driver. I've done some modifications to it and I'd like to keep it ,however, this water in the car is not going to work for me. Is this something that I'm going to have to deal with when it rains because the car is old. Is there a fix besides taking out the glass roof out and welding a piece of metal sealing the roof eliminating it all together. I never open it so this may be the less expensive option. Any suggestions options ? Thanks Gurus

    Drain tubes are probably plugged in the sunroof or in the tray in front of the windshield. Try and clean them out so that water doesn’t pool and get into the cabin

    The tray in front of the windshield was looked at I'll have the mechanic look at it or is it something that I can do without screwing up the car?

    Thanks you SinCityA6

    the mechanic should be able to pull up a diagram of where the sunroof drains route, should not be terribly difficult to pour some water down those drains and verify that they are not clogged until you find the clogged one

    The front windshield drain plugs were not look at, it's been awhile since I've been here I don't see an edit button.

    You can pull the tray cover off very easily and inspect the upper part of the drains.
