I had a MK6.5 for 2 years, apparently this was a common problem.

There are 2(?) small rectangular holes at the bottom of the door, on the inside at the weld point. They get clogged with road dirt, mine was after about a year. You just need to get a cloth/tissue and wipe the crud away, the water will come out by itself then. Just keep on top of it to stop serious damage. I've not actually checked my MK7 to see if it has the same

Thank you very much,

On going out and trying this, with a bucket underneath ;) i collected quarter of a bucket!!!

Seemed to be Slushy ice blocking the hole.

Thank you once again, will get out tomorrow and give them a proper clean.

Is it worth drilling a few more holes?

Well hopefully sorted this out today.

Cleaned out the holes on both doors with cotton buds and pipe cleaners, finished this off by clay barring, polishing and waxing the sills etc (For no reason apart from boredom :lol: )
