Saab 9-3 2012 | Car Leak Detection | Part 2

Part 2 of our video of the Saab with water leaks on the pollen filter, door membrane and rear vents.

James puts a hosepipe up under the rear bumper to simulate water splashing up from the road. This reveals that water is dripping in from the top of the vent, which then finds it's way down onto the back seat. See part 1 for more details of the rest of the leaks.

Solution: As always, when changing the door membrane on one side, we like to do the one on the other side too. Because the door membranes are the same age, so if one is leaking, it's likely the other will start to leak too before long. The same goes for the rear air vent. So both rear air vents will be resealed.

We would take the pollen filter housing out and see what the problem is, it's likely that the rubber gasket is perished and dirt has got in. This can be replaced or repaired depending on what the customer wants to do, parts availability etc.

We have been repairing leaks and drying cars for over 30 years

Car Leak Repair

Question: "My convertible Saab is leaking, and I think it's the roof.  Do I need to replace it, or can it be repaired?"

Answer: Unless big holes have been ripped in it, it's mostly likely the rubbers around the edge have perished, shrunk and got covered in dirt. The drainage system which channels away the run-off water might also be blocked. There's a lot you can do to fix leaks before you need to think about a replacement.
