Question: "The dealership says I need new rubbers, but this still leaves my car wet. Can you give me a quote for the work?
Answer: We have a system. What typically happens is that you pay £150 for an inspection. We do a 28 point check, plus checking all the points which are known trouble areas for your make and model of car. At the end of this we will have found at least one leak, we provide you with a video report, written and an estimate.
A lot of our customers have told us that they go to the dealers/mechanic, and they say, "It's the rubbers", they fix that and yet the leak persists, they go back again and have something else fixed, and then they find a leak somewhere else. It is not unusual for customers to tell us they have been back to the dealership 3-4 times, so our system aims to eliminate all this messing about.
So our inspection is the route we recommend because when cars get to a certain age, they tend to develop multiple leaks, and it's best to try and catch them all. (You will notice that if you look at our videos, many of the cars are 10-15 years old).
You can understand that if the door rubbers are perished on the passenger side, the rubbers on the driver's side are the same age and likely to be close to the same condition. So we would recommend doing both sides, if indeed it is the rubbers... I would also be suspicious of the door membranes, and Fiesta's tend to leak at the seams. The last one we did earlier this week had about 8 leaks.
Alternatively, if you have already had the dealership fix the leak, and you are confident it is fixed, we can dry your car. Even this can be difficult for us to quote without seeing the car, but our 15-hour overnight dry is probably be a good option. Our prices for drying are here.
