Thanks DanB986 - do you have a service bulletin number for this? I guess some of us would want our local dealers to run our VINs to see if our own vehicles are effected.
HiMy 2019 Q3 Vorsprung is going in on Monday for this exact same fault.
Luckily the Service chap was on the ball and knew of a bulletin that addresses this issue.
They'd had a Q3 with pano roof in the previous week, so he already knew where the water was coming in before I'd explained it.
The modification is adding an extra part, not replacing anything.
The drainage holes aren't getting blocked, it's a routing design issue that's been identified by Audi.
The water gets behind the trim at the top of the car and then runs down the A pillar and comes out where the photo shows. Or, if it's been really wet, where the interior trim on the A pillar joins the roof trim it comes through that joint and soaks your leg when you brake and turn right.
Hi my is in today but they say Aidi will only clean and dry carpets, they have been under water for 6 weeks and frozen solid for a week, can you give more details your dealership please.I have a 2019 Q3 and 1st reported a water leak into the car almost a year ago. The car spent a week in my local dealer in 2020 with no rectification or acceptance of the problem. The latest bout of bad weather resulted in the front foot wells being flooded and ruined carpets. The car is now back at my dealer and Audi has finally recognised a fault. The interior is to be replaced due to water damage under warranty.
Apparently the required parts are on back order and no repair time can be given. The car is held by the dealer until further notice and i have been offered the use of a car in the meantime. My 1st Audi and probably the last.
So yesterday I washed my car using pressure washer and specifically I tried my water ingress test and after drying up the car opened the roof to check and there was no water only few drops so looks like it's fixed for me.Washed the RS at the weekend, tell-tale puddle on the drivers side rubbed floor mat - booked in with the dealer next week.
All I can say is if yours sunroof inside channels are dry after rain or using pressure washer then you are good no need to do anything.From all the information my 2020 Q3 should have a problem with the sunroof leaking. I have had no problems with this even after I washed it using a high pressure hose on Saturday. Is this a batch thing? Should I take mine in to be checked even though there isn't a problem?
Thanks John (used my dog’s name as my pseudo - long story)Welcome to the club Vodka...great name!
There is a saying, in engineering circles that goes like this "If it ain't broke then don't fix it", to my knowledge there hasn't been a pano roof leak issue on an 8U Q3 in the five years I've been here and having covered north of 100,000 Km in to 8U Q3 with Pano roofs I've never had an issue - only pleasure.
The drain tubes are located in the 4 corners of the sunroof opening -Hi I have a 2016 q3 with panoramic sunroof - can anyone explain (photo or diagram) where the 4 drains are ? (Have searched this and other forums)
Advice on cleaning myself or paying Audi ?
(No leaks yet but had the issue a few years back on a 9 year old A6 all road)
Many thanks spike - front is easy - back more difficult (and noted different to other Audi models where recommended to remove the rear glass form the sun roof) will check the front and wait and see for the back , have a great day Vodka
Unfortunately I did not take any pictures and looking back wish I did. My concern is that any amount of leakage in the footwells, etc can affect the electronics. Point is, it's a new car and it shouldn't have any leaks whatsoever.Any pictures of it would be helpful.
Alright no worries. How about a picture showing location where you found it wet or water in rear passenger side.Unfortunately I did not take any pictures and looking back wish I did.
