water leak

Here we are again...

Few month back I was thinking about water leakage inside the car after my daughter said that the plastic trim in the backseat was wet. Since was raining in the beginning I was thinking that the water splashed from the door, by the way when we entered the car was not raining.

Two weeks back was a strong bad smell of wet rag/carpet, it was very strong. I was thinking since was very humid, the A/C filter got mold, so I changed it. Smell was still there, very strong. I had to spray deodorant everywhere.

Today again, very heavy rain, and again, my daughter complained about the safety belt in the back seat was wet...when I went to check I saw that there was a wet stain in the roof. in direction of the frame between the back door window and the back fixed window. same direction in the bottom inside the trim is the safety belt.

The car has panoramic sunroof and cargo bar, for sure water is seeping from one of the two.

2018 car... I thought that German car are well built.... we are at the second bad issue, I don't think that I'll buy a VW in the future. fortunately this one is on lease, but still it create a problem
