    09 q7 roof leak

    hi everyone looking to get any info on this leak. after car wash noticed no sound from speakers. right rear headliner was wet. volume came back after few hours. removed right rear panel to inspect. it has panoramic roof, poured water and noticed water leaking from right rear. poured on all corners of the roof, all corners drained about the same . hope to get some info before dropping the headliner.

    Water drain hose behind
    Water drain hose run(proceed) behind in the columns-C-and end in the wheel arch about the wheel arch bowl.
    The cleaning occurs(takes place) from the lower wearing out.

    The Q7 and A6 Avant have a common problem with the rear wiper/washer. The washer supply/pipes break near the rear lid/hatch, resulting in washer fluid dropping right onto the infotainment system (with the sound system on top). This is a common issue and Audi is aware of it. If I remember correctly, they might even cover this (partially) under warranty. The sound system is likely beyond repair, just make sure not to use the (rear) washer until this has been checked and fixed.

    just to make it clear when I pour water around moon roof drain, I can see it leaking inside the cab onto the head liner and then to the amplifier

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
