    Sorry, I'd forgotten about this post!

    Clearing out the drainage system as per earlier in the topic worked wonders. The plastic drains are like miniature versions of drains on the side of older houses, and are about 70mm square. They sit just behind the seats on the top forward edge of the rear wings. I cleaned them out easily with the aid of a piece of bicycle outer cable, (similar to that used to hold up net curtains), and gently worked it up and down gently until water runs through the pipe again. The pipe exits through the floor section just in front of the rear wheel arches.

    The roof is a clever piece of engineering, and you may not realise it, but when closed, the bottom edge of the roof forms a large tube which collects the water if the car is not parked on the level. I'm not sure what would happen if the car is left parked facing upwards on a slope though, since at some point it must fill the tube. However, I suppose the excess water would just run over the edge of the outer panels and onto the ground.

    I bought my wife a new TT Roadster in March 2015; it's currently in the garage for the second time being drained! We've already had new hi-fi amplifiers and electronics replaced...absurd. The dealer suggested he's trying to sort the problem free of charge out of the kindness of his heart! Really? He also asked if my wife parks under a tree! 40k for German engineering! Not happy.

    I can understand your annoyance with what is an almost new car. You must be very frustrated. Maybe they have Friday afternoon cars in Germany too.....

    I have the same problem. Cleaned the drains, but water has accumulated behind the front-seats, there must be a vacuum space there, so when I accelerate or break hard, the water moves back and forward... Anyone experienced this and how to empty the water accumulated ?

    It is not a good idea to reactivate a post that was started thirteen years ago, are you sure yours is a TT mk1, your symptoms suggest it is a Mk2?
