In Topic: Where To Go To Get A Leak Repaired?

01 May 2014 - 10:39 AM

Pollen filter housing situated at the rear of the glovebox is known to leak,
So much that my local ford dealership changed both the filter and the complete housing the LAST time i went to them.
All good they changed the housing to cover there own backs,
But they then charged be 58 pounds for the housing which they chose to fit and not actually required if the filter is changed correctly,
And one would think: "surly ford dealership would be the best place to change my pollen filter correctly"
Eh seems not no,

 

Yo Lenny, it's only on the driver's side so I doubt it is that.

Think I found it, no leak there though. To check if it's a bulkhead seal issue, who do you recommend I take it to? To take it to a general garage would not be the best option, right?

Any chance you could provide any imagery for the location of the AC drain tube Arthur? There are a few tubes around where you said to look...

ac drain if you remove the drivers kick panel at the console and lift carpet youll see a rubber hose thatss the drain it can still be blocked even though its dripping to the outside given the location i wouldnt think its that but you do have the heater matrix nearby has the coolant level dropped? other than that ide say its possibly a bulkhead seal you need to find how far up the damp patch is if its up towards the window area then a seal or window seal is likely the issue if it doesnt go up that far then the water is from lower down and soaking into the padding which could be door seals as said or aircon drain pipe leaking into the car the seals on the pipe are poor so can leak in and let in water from the road as well so i sealed mine anyway

 

Thanks Arthur, that's some very useful information, I will check those things after it has stopped raining.
