Volvo C 70 2006 | water leak on door and cabriolet roof

A completely different set of leaks from the last Volvo C70 we did (you can find this in our Volvo playlist).

This one has a leaky door membrane and a leak from a rear window which the hard convertible roof closes onto. 

Solution: We will replace both door membranes because the chances are they are both perishing, and it probably won't be long until the passenger side one is leaking too.

We will give the rubbers on the roof a good clean and then treat them with a restorer, which should make them supple again and hopefully create a better seal. If not, the rubbers will need to be replaced. 
With all this done, the car will be dried and re-assembled and returned to the customer.

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

Water Leak Detection Service

Up  to a third of the cost of your car was computers, processors and sensors. Delicate  electrical systems hidden under your carpets, which might now be sitting in water. 

 

Car Leak Repair

Question: "Could the water in my car be causing the electrical problems?"

Answer: Most definitely. You probably noticed already the condensation on the inside of your windows. Water from any leak will condensate on any hard cold surface, which includes all the metal connectors behind your dashboard and even inside the doors. Critical systems tend to be pretty well waterproofed, so we have found control units situated under seats which are completely submerged, and they still work, but things like electric windows aren't so well protected. We often find it's things like this which are first to go. So if you find your car has a leak, and it is just one of a string of problems you have had with the car, the leak could be the root cause.

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.
