In january this year i had some panel work done on the right side of my car (see pic in gallery).
They had to replace my back window during the process and they didn't seal it up properly so i was getting water leaking in thru the window. I took it back to get it fixed, but the a***hole still didn't fix it properly. I was still getting leaks.
So i took it back again and then when i got it back it seemed fine. No leaks getting in. Cool.. so i'm happy..

untill now...

I just opened up my boot and i was playing around in there (as you do) and I decided to have a look behind the carpet on the right wall of my boot where some panel work was done, and i just noticed a tube that I swear was never there before. Wtf is it??? I tried to follow it to where it goes and it looks like it goes up into the cabin and up behind the right panel where the rear right seatbelt comes out off.

So what I'm thinking is that I've probably STILL got a fkn leak.. and what the bastards did was stick a tube in there so the water just drains out off my car instead of inside onto my seats...

Does anyone else have this in thier car? Am i going crazy?
I can't belive i never looked back in there after i got my car back!!

Are you guys certain it's for the sunroof? I was planning to going out there and pulling apart my interior to find where it goes to.

Hmm... now i feel better, so thanks guys. But still i don't get it.. i swear it was never there before..

Alright, i'll take your word for it..
Thanks.
I guess the panel beaters aren't gonna cop an abuse after all. hehe

Speaking of sunroof. I've got a leak in mine.. drips onto my passenger seat. Any one got any clue how much it'd cost to get it re-sealed? I think that's what the problem is.
