Volvo C70 2009 | Leaking Windscreen

This one is pretty self-explanatory. For whatever reason the bonding at the top of the screen on this Volvo C70 has shrunk and come away, or it was never bonded properly in the first place, causing lots of water to leak in.

This has left the car with plenty of water in it, the carpets soaked and electric cables sitting in water, which is never an ideal situation. 

Solution: The window can be refitted and bonded in properly. There is nothing wrong with this screen, it just needs to be properly fitted. With that done, we can see about drying the car.

Question: "I think i have a leaky screen, can I claim on the insurance?"

Answer: You could certainly try. If you have windscreen cover as part of your insurance policy, and you had an incorrectly fitted windscreen through them, then they should certainly be informed. The key is to tell them you want your car dried properly. There is a tendency for some companies to send around a mobile guy to shampoo the carpets and that's about it. This will not dry the car out, but I don't think a lot of the people who deal with these matters at insurance companies are aware of that.
