Hi B8 Sportback owners,

I'm having water leaking into my tailgate hatch after it rains - it pools up and the day after it rains when I open/close the hatch, the water is released.

Attached is a video:

I'm not sure if the water is meant to be draining out of that port on the hatchback tailgate (I removed the rubber plug) by design or if this isn't meant to be happening. It also floods the tailgate seal...

Can any other owners confirm if this also happens to them (and also comment if it doesn't)? I had the tailgate replaced after a prang so wanted to double check with you guys if it also happens to other Sportback owners before I go back and complain to the insurance company about it.

Many thanks! :)
