Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car

\015 VW passat 1999 1.9 tdi\015\012\015\012I've tried clearing the drainage hole under the battery which i cleared and also looked under the car for any holes but none there.\015\012can't figure out what is causing the water to keep coming into the rear passenger area underneath all the time only if it's wet or raining.\015\012keep mopping the water and draining it elsewhere, very frustrating.\015\012any ideas on how to fix this please would be well appreciated\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 26-10-2020

My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.
It sounds like a seal leaking, pehaps the rear window, door seals or boot/hatch.
You can test by power washing with a lot of foam as the foam will show exactly where the leak is.
Once found, if on a glass seal you can buy a seal fixer, a liquid to apply to the offending area that seals it.Door or hatch seals just pull off and clip back on a new one.
