Ford Focus 2012 | water leak found


Another Ford focus here at New Again for our water leak 28 point check. This focus has had some rear accident damage which is contributing to the water ingress.

Poorly fitted rear light and the common problem with recirculation vents located low in the rear bumper are the reasons this car is suffering with ingress.

The passenger rear light has been re-installed incorrectly after repair Causing the water to find a channel down a wire from the light cluster. 
As you will see in the video we use a camera which allows us access to areas that we can’t physically see.

Typically the reason why we get this Age of focus in with us is because the rear recirculating vents fail causing water to build up in a low box section which in turn then travels into the cabin footwells saturating the vehicle underlay. 

Solutions to fix this leak: We will remove the rear lights make good, reseal re fit and retest
We will also replace the faulty vents and reseal to make them watertight
The carpet and underlay will be removed so we can decontaminate and dry the car and make it safe for the customer to drive again.
