Volkswagen Eos (2006 – 2015) At A Glance

Rating:

Goes and handles well with space for four adults. Decent luggage trunk top up and fresh air top down.

Multi section roof is proving almost impossible to seal against leaks which can wreck the hydraulic mechanism.

Faced with almost overwhelming competition from Ford, Peugeot, Renault, Vauxhall and Volvo, the wags from Wolfsburg came up with the best folding tin-top your folding can buy.

The Eos 2.0 TFSI 200 has the sweetest engine, the nicest transmission, the stiffest body, the finest handling and the best rear legroom of the lot.

The real joy is it's the one and only coupe cabrio that actually goes and drives like a sportscar rather than merely look like one. And, as an added bonus, it even offers an electric sliding sunroof when you have the top up.

Why is there water in the footwell of my car?

Any ideas of how water is entering my Volkswagen Eos and settling in the passenger footwell with no signs or evidence of any leaks via the roof drains or doors? I've cleared out the leaves and rubbish from the air intake under the bonnet and windscreen. The water in the footwell is quite considerable and is creating pools when the carpet is compressed.
I think you will find that the drains either side of the bulkhead vent well that you have been clearing out will be blocked by decomposing leaves. That gives nowhere for rainwater to go except via the pollen filter into the footwell. You need to clean the drains out with something like a teapot spout brush. It could also be that the pollen filter waterproof cover or its seal is damaged and the pollen filter will need to be replaced anyway because it will be sodden wet.
