Accident Clean-up Question from Ichiro Tatsuhara

Submitted on 13/01/2012

There were electrical issues. When the car was switched off dashboard lights, engine warning lights, and handbrake lights came back on. A local mechanic identified it was due to water coming into the cabin floor. The under carpet connectors been dried and cleaned so the problem has disappeared but the mechanic not sure where the water is coming in from. After searching on the net for water leakage on 406, it appears that the water can enter from various locations and I had heard water sloshing around, possibly in the car sill. The mechanic thinks leakage is possibly coming from the windowscreen. Can you help? I am in East London. Model: Peugeot 406 HDi Estate Reg: PL002KKE 2002


If you have more than one leak, it can prove a bit more difficult. You have to identify the leak, fix it and then you can move on the the next one, if its there. Have a look at this page, then book it in.   We can sometimes find them all if they are all part of the same problem. As an example a badly fitting screen could have a leak at both corners.
