    Tiguan sunroof leak - please help!!!

    I noticed the headliner above my front passenger side was wet after the car had been sitting in the heavy rain for quite a few hours. So I took it to the shop and this is what they did:
    Inspected sunroof drain nipples in clow, ok, not clogged. Dropped front portion of headliner and pour water in the drainage channel. Found when very full water ingresses near sunroof cable guide tube. Sealed using butyl sealing cord and tested. No leaks present. Suspect a minor crack in the sunroof frame. If water ingress continues, a new sunroof frame is required.

    Now Its been a week after I picked up the car from the shop, and the headliner is wet again. It has been raining non stop for past two days. I hate to replace the whole frame, which will cost about 3k, until I exhaust all other options first. I don't see any crack and neither did the mechanic. They said they were following the protocol: first try the sealant, if does not work, then it must be the crack in the frame. Any ideas/suggestions?

    I also have a leak in sunroof and in the same place as yours. Fortunately it only leaks when taken through a high power car wash. Another Tiguan owner has the same issue, he applied Flex Seal (the TV adverted stuff) to the front portion of the sunroof. He said that the roof has not leaked since. I haven't tried that yet, but thought I would pass it on.
