    Water in roof?

    hi

    in the process of removing the rear interior pillars to replace my aerial base and found that the padding stuff in passenger side rear pillar is soaking wet! now there is no sign of water anywhere else i.e headlining, or behind the grab handles and i cant figure out why it would be so wet.

    is it possible that at some time the window has been smashed and the padding has just held the water since then? i find this unlikely especially with the hot summer we had.

    any ideas?

    cheers

    Does the car have a sunroof, could the rear washer jet pipe be split or leaking?

    What I think autosparks means is that it could be a leak with the rear washer/wiper piping...

    Presuming this isnt a coupe, get sumone to activiate the rear wash/wipe when your sitting under the headlining...

    This would then hopefully illiminate that possibility...

    missed the bit about the washer pipe leaking.

    i noticed a black tube running through the body of the roof above the trim. i guess this is the rear wash tube?

    ill check that aint leaking then mate. cheers
