    Take the lower slide cover off (the part below the slide) and have a look at the plastic parts of the drain channels. There are two drain outlets that 'should' run any water that gets into the slide channel to the outside of the van. Often the upper and lower parts are not correctly joined!

    This is one of the dubious pleasures of owning a T5 or T6, VW have known about the fault since 2003 but not fixed it yet. I've had three T5s and they have all leaked and not been fixed by anything that the dealers have been able to do.

    That was about the only issue my T5.1 Cali didn't have!

    Did you keep the windows by any chance ?

    I should have done!
    T6 Cali windows seem okay too; possibly the double glazing helps?

    I have noticed the same now on my sliding door window. This too is one that opens but it appears to be coming from the bottom and nothing to do with the opening bit. I am going to do what I did with my old SC splitty and put some clear sealer round!

    Leak update:
    I've cleaned all window channels and seals, followed by applying a very thin application of silicone grease to the seals. Two days of rain later and a water test with the pressure washer - bone dry inside. I suspect preventative maintenance rather than a cure for this one.
