Water leak in
Renault Clio

Many Clio owners experience problems with leaking sunroofs. This is a slow deterioration of the seal between the sunroof frame and the body of the car.

This problem doesn't appear until long after the warranty has expired. There is no simple remedy without professional help and at Colchester Motorglass, we will completely remove and refit the sunroof at your home.

Water leak in
Vauxhall Astra

This concerns a windscreen fitted two weeks ago to an Astra. It started to leak as soon as it was out of the workshop. With Mk 3 Astras, this will be a straight forward refit and replace, as it is most likely that the rain channel was fitted incorrectly.

This then allowed water to travel through the pollen filter into the front foot wells.

Windscreen leak in
Ford Focus

Ford Focuses made between 1998 to 2005 often have a leak on the passenger's side. It is commonly associated with the windscreen. 99% of the time it is the pollen filter cover. This should be removed during the windscreen process changeover.

We can remedy this by simply removing and refitting the pollen cover.
