I'm a new owner of a golf mk 7 2013 - please advise - boot lining under spare wheel soaking wet - Also DPF filter warning has come on

Tim,

Going by that pic of the boot drain, the end grommet has perished. You should have a rubber grommet on the outside of the hole.

Best to check and make sure you can see the tube end when looking into the drain hole. The part looks like this, and the issue tends to pop up when some part of the end seal rots away and allows the tube to drain into the hatch rather than out the hole:

OP's car isn't supposed to have a drain tube. It's an early 2013 model.

I have this same drain problem. Is it just a matter of removing the panel fasteners and installing a new tube/seal ? Anything special to replacing it ? Any shortcuts ?
