vw golf 1999 convertible passenger side leak?


my convertible golf in last 6 months has developed a serious leak around the passenger front side. It seems to be coming in from around the wing mirror housing and tracking down on the inner face of the door trim and dripping onto the carpet? Seems a lot of water for such a small leak. Any suggestions ? Its only done 18000 miles and had no other leaks upto now?

    Take the mirror housing off and check it..Also check all your rubber door seals, you might have a split in one which might be the problem..Even on new cars things can and do go wrong so check as much as you can see, if you find nothing then try a VW specialist….
    Ive just bought a 2001 passat estate and will now be checking it in the morning just in case this is a common fault….Good luck
    Just a quick thought, also check as well as you can the inside of the wheel arches, you might have a small hole…as i say its just a thought..

    I don’t know about a convertible, but I have a hard-top Golf IV GLS with a similar problem. Water is leaking all over the passenger front side, and has actually began to pool in the area. It appears this is very common with vw’s and is often caused by clogged drain lines on the plenum, water leaking in via your pollen filter (on the passenger side plenum), or a leak on the interior seal of your door (a fourth cause is clogged sun roof drains, but I assume you don’t have this problem). These two sites might provide some answers. The first is for a class action lawsuit against volkswagen for the leaks, the second is a forum thread with many people in a similar situation. It has a lot of good directions for troubleshooting and repairs.
