Renault are prone to leak through the bulkhead, this is usually caused by blocked drainage holes in the trough that sits under the windscreen, which then fills up with water and leaks through.

Bulkheads have lots of holes for wires, pipes and clips and water will usually find a way.

Solution: We will make sure the drainage holes in this area are clear, although that might not be the direct cause of this problem. The water could be leaking it's way in through holes for the clips that hold the air conditioning pipes. As long as the clips have not become brittle and don't need replacing, they can just be sealed. Then the carpets can be dried.

Question: "You guys sound like you know what you're doing, and I want you to fix my leak. Are you mobile?"

Answer: I'm afraid not, we couldn't really do what we do as a mobile service. Just for detecting the leaks we have a lot of equipment and as you can see from our videos, we do like to start taking the car apart to  really track down the source of the leak. This is all best done in a workshop. As for drying cars, this can only really be done inside.

The second set of leaks on this Renault Megan. We like to be thorough, and it would have been easy to stop looking for leaks at these leaky doors, but because it's a Renault we went straight for the bulkhead and found a leak as shown in part 1.

We have seen a lot of these down the years. There is a trough in front of the bulkhead under the 'scuttle' which is the plastic panel just under the windscreen.

One of the drainage holes on the scuttle area was blocked, leading it to fill up with water. From here it can slop around and go in different directions depending on which direction the car is moving

This car had blocked sunroof drainage holes, blocked on both sides, which often causes problems as the water can then run down from the roof, but as there doesn't seem to be much water on the passenger side this doesn't seem to be the main culprit.
