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 feel the dealer is responsible to fix my car my 98 Aud A6 with only 130,000 miles!!! It's very crazy that a company that makes atleast 50,000 for some models and up to 100,000 for others and they can't keep stuff like thiz from happening from David-B.
