2000 Audi A6 Quattro - After a heavy rain storm, I found about 1/2 inch of water in the rear passenger side foot well. After researching the issue and reading numerous reports of the same problem....it makes me wonder why Audi has not addressed this design flaw. This is my first Audi and its probably my last.
The drain under the hood was clogged with leaves. Reached into the pit of water, removed leaves, water drained. NOw to fix the water damage inside the car - mechanic removed entire interior and dried the carpet in heated garage for 10 days. The whole carpet has a 2 inch foam underside that acts like a sponge. Must be removed and dried or you will get never ending mildew and mold. He also removed the computers and detailed those with metal cleaner. Eventually made it run at 100%, without replacing anything. You need to get the water out before it damages the computers under the carpet!!!!!!!!!
