It could be a similar problem with yours - we've had an awful lot of rain lately!
The front ones on my Passat do the same in the rain, VW tell me that it is water droplets on the sensors somehow find it hard to believe but they have tested them twice now and cannot find a fault. Funny thing is that the rear ones were doing the same and they replaced them. After that the rears have been fine, but they won't replace the front ones

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
