    As above, it’s all about who sold you the car when it comes to legal rights. How they repair it is up to them but they must wear the costs. I could recite the various legal points but at this stage it may be unnecessary. Contact the seller first and ask them to foot the repair bill.

    The black tape around the cable cover is just for extra peace of mind. He had to make a small incision for the dashcam cable. It’s well clear of the rain even with the boot closed, unlike before. application screenshot

    Back at Halfords now to have it rectified. The guy has come up with a different route for the cable that won’t interfere with the seal.

    Good that they are paying then. There’s no limit on that legally. Your short term right to reject the car is 30 days from you taking delivery of the car. Any repairs, irrespective of warranty, are at the sellers expense.

    Legally, if the garage that sold you the car advised it needs to be worked on by Ford, they should wear the costs not you.

    When you say recently purchased, when exactly are we talking about please? In terms of legal rights, they lie against the garage that sold you the car rather than these Ford dealers you have visited. This does not stop you from seeking other remedies but you’d be better sticking with who sold it to you. What is the dealer that sold it you?

    Just the normal reflex silver. I’ve noticed there are holes in the rubber seal anyway so it must be designed to allow a certain amount of water under it.

    Yes a new Polo that I’ve only had for a couple of weeks. I’m just worried that rain will get to places it shouldn’t. Other than that it’s a neat job.

    I can’t work out where the cable goes after the bit you can see going under the rubber strip. The rest of the strip is really tight so I’ve no idea how they have even done it.
  11. I have zero technical or mechanical knowledge so I seek your opinions please. I’ve had a rear facing dashcam installed at Halfords today and it works fine. However, once at home I’ve noticed where they have installed the cable and as you can see from the photos, they have lifted a small section of the rubber seal up. So, when it rains, water will get under that gap. In your opinions, is this not an issue at all and the water will simply drain away, or is there now a risk of water ingress into the roof lining at the rear of the car? Thanks in advance
