Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, How are you?I'm Shabaz, one of the automotive experts, I'm sorry you're experiencing problems with your car, I will do my best to help you today.
Which footwell collects the water? Also, what is the engine size and fuel type?
Does the car have a sunroof?
Have you checked the drains? If you spill water at the edges of the screen (don't spill any on the floor), you should see it dripping down by the wheel arch. You can check the sunroof drains by using a syringe and inject water into the drain pipe and again, it should be dripping under the car. Water getting into the car can cause all sorts of electrical problems, mainly corrosion of electrical connectors.
It depends on the extent of the corrosion or water damage. The connectors can just be cleaned with electrical contact cleaner and put back together, what you will be charged for, is the time taken to find the problem, that will come under labour cost which varies from garage to garage £25 - £55 per hour.
I hope this helps. Thank you for visiting Just Answer.
Welcome. Replacement can get very expensive because of the wiring loom cost and where that specific loom travels in the car (if the tech has to start removing half the panels in the car, it will get expensive). Water damage is mostly isolated to connectors and maybe some of the loom close to the connector which can be repaired.
That's going to depend on what hourly rate the electrician is charging because it's purely labour and not really a parts cost because you can get the loom from a breakers yard if needed.
I'm glad I was able to help. Thank you for visiting JustAnswer. Have a great evening!
