Well done for giving other members the heads up.on this issue Piotr! I do hope you caught the issue in the nick of time and haven't suffered from any water damage in the cabin. 

Hope it's ok but I'm going to move this thread to the c6 section and pin/feature it. 

Cheers

Steve

Cool. I had no problems on mine with water but i recon if i would not clean the drains i would have soon 

I have to agree, I think this would have easily lead to problems.

Hi first off thank you for this info and pics to help on this issue. Due to having water in passenger footwell I have also cleaned the drainage hole and surrounding areas but the problem still persists any more areas of the car that could be causing this? As all the seals ect around windscreen looks fine any help would be appreciated thanks.

I also removed the glove box to try find where water was coming from and believe I found dripping from carbon cabin filter. I'm so confused?

If you have a sun roof, make sure that the drains are clear for this, or you will have water ingress here too.

My beautiful A6 Quattro Avant 2012 with just 108.000 km was classed as a 'total loss' or write off by the insurance company today. Somehow water got into the electrics and I think because the roof was replaced (dents) and during the repairs the roof and windscreen were out for 4 weeks. Unfortunately the car never got to Audi to have the problem diagnosed (battery drain causing the battery to be flat overnight) just a local car sparky who I think was doing the panel beater a favour by finding a different fault as he had no insurance to cover the damage. He claims a typical Audi and European car fault that the 'drain hole under the wiper rack assembly gets blocked'. This he claims is a common fault... well I've driven Audis for over 20 years and never heard of it ... has anyone else?
