Default Re: Water Leakage in cars - Causes & solutions

On seeing water inside a car, the first thing which comes in to the mind of most of the people, is the beading problem. This detailed write up is an eye opener on how many things can go wrong. Thanks for sharing this wonderful compilation.

Correct me if I am wrong here but, isn't it a good practice to use car's AC in lowest temperature setting, once in a while. It ensures proper condensation and removal of moisture.

Default Re: Water Leakage in cars - Causes & solutions

Need some advice , yesterday i found out good amount of water in rear passenger footwell area of my swift dzire , not sure of the reason but might be because of a house shifting activity I was involved in, never had any leakage issues.

My main query is - the carpet area is pretty wet , looks like 1-2 liters of water spilled
plan is to dry off using , towels, newspaper sunlight - i.e all means

but is there any chance of the metal beneath the carpet area getting rusted , shall I see a svc centre or local worshop , gents/ladies any advice will be highly appreciated .

Thanks in Advance

Carpet will need to be removed . If you try to clean and dry it without removing the carpet it will start smelling bad .
Unlike older Maruti cars , the DZire may have to have the front seats removed to take the carpet out for drying .
Had the same problem with my alto in the front foot well . Tried drying the carpet in the car , soon enough it started smelling bad .
