Here we have an Audi Q7 S line which has got an original Audi window screen but with us doing a pressure test you can see that the top bond has perished or worn away which is now allowing water to ingress down the bulkhead.
If this had been a newly fitted windscreen, you would have issue with the windscreen company, and it's time to contact them.
This was an original windscreen, and the bonding has over time aged and shrunk. Thankfully they won't need a new windscreen, but they will need to get it refitted. For many years we have worked with CCS Windscreens, who are just down the road from us.
Improperly fitted windscreens is one of our top ten reasons for water leaks in cars, both front and back. Rear windscreens can leak too!
Solution: Re-fit windscreen. Decontaminate the car, dry the carpets and use odour-kill to remove bad smells.
We fix leaks. We could fix yours too!
We are one of only a handful of car water leak specialists in the world, fully equipped for detecting water ingress, dealing with water damage, drying cars and eliminating odours.
Question: "I fixed a leak, but my car is constantly damp and smells like a swamp."
Answer: Cars seldom dry on their own. If you have a economy small hatchback or town car, the carpets might be thin and you can get away with it, but most cars have thick foam carpet underlay. You will need to lift up the carpets or remove them completely to try them. But if your car smells, it's best to treat this while the car is still wet. We use antimicrobial and antifungal to get rid of mould spores, which can make you quite ill. Those damp odours in your car are something you should take seriously... more seriously than the actual leaks.
