What is a water leaking into vehicle inspection?

The passenger cabin on a vehicle is sealed against the elements, be it from rain above to water and spray from the road. When a break in this seal occurs, water can access the cabin pretty quickly, soak into the carpets and generally wreak havoc with the internal electrics.

A water leaking into vehicle inspection is specifically aimed at finding the source of the leak in order to move forward with its resolution.

What does a water leaking into vehicle diagnostic involve?

  • The mechanic will check the gathering point for the water.
  • They will then attempt to trace the water source back to the fault area
  • Once this has been identified it will then dictate the next course of action
  • If there is something they can do that is quick and doesn’t require any additional parts, then they will do what is required to seal it.
  • If the leak requires parts and additional labour to resolve, then the mechanic will quote you on the required repairs.
