Report: Rainwater May Accumulate in Plenum Tray Due to Clogged Drains
Audi Allroad Quattro Problem
Average Mileage: 95,985 mi (50,000 mi - 169,000 mi)
Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.

I became aware of the problem when I heard water sloshing around in the right rear floor area. Next, brake warning lights, then trouble shifting. Audi dealer estimated damage to "control modules" over 8,000.00 Insurance evaluated as total loss due to design flaw. Not the first design flaw in this car.

The interior of my car filled with several feet of water during heavy rains. I found out that water accumulated in the plenum tray due to clogged drains from leaf debris that had accumulated. It took a month and $6k for the dealer to repair. They refused to cover it with warranty. Audi later lost a class action lawsuit due to the matter. I am done with Audi.

I discovered water in my cabin area (left hand side) front and rear after there had been a large hail storm. There was approx 20cm of water sloshing around and I could not work out how ir had got there as all the windows and sunroof were shut. After some web searched I found that this was due to the drain blocked due hail which caused the heavy rain to flood into the cabin area.
