Our latest 28 point check water leak detection service is a 2011 Audi Q5.
The car is suffering from some heavy damage to the rear quarter as seen in the video, this is contributing to the vehicle's water ingress. The car will need body repair to stop the leak continuing.
We also have a blocked rear sunroof drain which is causing water ingress into the same location, the boot floor pan and passenger rear footwell, so these areas will need to be stripped cleaned decontaminated and dried.
Water has the tendency to find its lowest point, in this case the passenger rear footwell and boot floor pan. The vehicle's underlay is holding a significant amount of water as a result. Without removing seats and trims etcetera this will stay wet for a lengthy period of time which will cause mould to develop.
We are good at this. Why not let us find your leak?
Here at New Again we specialize in leak diagnosis, finding leaks, decontamination and drying cars. We get plenty of practice... it rains a lot.
Question: "My car leaks water on the front floor carpets. It has been to the dealer's and the garage, and they have replaced some bits, but they don't seem to have fixed the leak."
Answer: It can be a process of elimination, and we don't promise we can fix your leak first time. It is possible they did fix leaks, and you have more. We have seen vehicles with half a dozen or more. It happens with cars of a certain age. As we always say, once you find your car keys, you stop looking. Car water leaks are not the same as looking for your keys, and we do check all the obvious points, but it would be expensive to keep checking, and checking until we are 100% certain we have found every leak when on nine out of ten cars, our 28 point check gets them all.
