Here we have a Volvo V 70 in for a water leak procedures and has revealed the front sunroof pipes are blocked which is causing the water to back up run down a-pillars and then escaping through the bottom of the glovebox into both footwells.

Quite a lot of rain water has leaked inside the car from these blocked pipes, and in our next video we'll show you just how much. People often underestimate just how much water is under their carpets, and they think that if they fix the leak, the car will dry out in a few days. This isn't the case, unless you dry the car properly the water could stay in there for years causing condensation, mould, corrosion and causing electrical problems.

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: "I have a leak in my car , the carpets are wet and  the car is full of water. Can I claim on the insurance?"

Answer: Highly unlikely... however, if you had a crash and the insurance arranged for repair, or you have a windscreen replaced under windscreen cover, and either of these repairs were done poorly and resulted in a leak, then you would have recourse somewhere. They will usually pay for you to get your car valeted. The valeters will shampoo the carpets and spray around some air freshener, and that just isn't good enough.  You can see in Part 2 of this Volvo C70 video

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.
