Lexus RX400H 2009 | Water Leak Detection Part 2


Here we are again with the leaky Lexus. Although all the leaks were covered in the previous video, for the sake of being thorough, James will demonstrate the leaking seams.

It must be said that although was may say "the welds have cracked", this is not a safety issue. The welds on modern cars are spot-welded, which isn't waterproof. They waterproof them at the factory with a sealant, which over time can crack, allowing water in.

What is a safety issue, is with water getting into electric and hybrid cars. It goes without saying that water and electricity don't play well together, so if you have an electric car with a leak, promise us you will at least have somebody look at it.
