    Default Toyota Cars Exposed Under Heavy Rains !

    hey guys, my car altis cruisetronic was standing inside our house and my se saloon automatic was standing on the road when khi got haevy rains. As the level of water on the roads rised and raised above the door levels both of my cars got flooded with water frm inside, nw my basic qs is tht although the se saloon is old nw, how can the new altis have water leaked inside, isnt it a big manafacturing defect? And i wud be pretty thnkful to u ppl, if u cud give me any remedies on how to soak the water frm inside cuz although i have cleaned it a lot of times the next time i open the car, its present there, cuz i feel the car has absorbed a lot of water, plz tell me hw to get rid of tht stinking smell tht has crept inside and also hw to clean the carpet of the car.

    well, (i think) the reason for this is that when water become wild (Wavy) it start hitting the seals at the bottom of the car and start pushing them hard, and sometimes open them - letting the water coming inside the car like anything.

    now the issue with your car is that the foam inside the carpet is all soaked and smelly - now you have to remove, clean and dry it properly to finish this thing and also make sure while doing this you do put some silicon or other sticking glue on the seals so next time you might dont become the unfortunate one.

    HONDA people are charging 6000 for complete cleaning service, but i would advise you to check with some good local denter / mechanic.

    it happened with my mehran in lahore during the last year rain.

    i took out the carpet, which didnt take long. then i removed the stoppers in the holes and tried flush out the water out of those holes, when it became almost dried i left the windows open and parked it in sun. this helps to get rid of smell and dreis the car too. kept the carpet in sun too more than two days.

    however i think that underlay of your carpet would probably be ruined though. i dont remember if teh mehran's had an underlay.

    i happened with my car, only way to remove water is to first remove the seats and then remove the carpet thats what i did, i let the car dry for 2 days, in mean time washed the carpets and matts and let them dry. removing was easy but putting back carpet in its original position was tough. it took almost 3 hours of mine to put carpet and seat back in the car. but it worth spending that time doing it. now no more smell and water.

    hope it will work for u.
    Help others so that u can be Helped

    If you want to do something yourself,follow what @archon2001 said,otherwise check those guys on new MA Jinnah Road footpaths adjacent to Dawood Engg. College who washes cars completely,I havent got any experience with them though.


    Your both Corollas have got some leaks for sure,as I drove my 2005 Corolla Xli when rain was at full swing at around 9PM & roads were totally over flooded & I kept on driving car in extremely high level water specially at Sharah e Faisal the same night almost continuosly till next morning & literally water level was at height of my front grill emblem & engine sound was like GHOOB GHOOB & I had also heard water flowing under my car quite loudly,but not a single drop of water came inside,only lose I faced that water fused my headlight bulb due to its height.

    well the prob is tht on the same lane as mine at the same level two vitz were standing and they did not got flooded, and my cruisetronic was also covered but still it got flooeded. so i guess imported cars are more reliable then our locally manafactured "dubas" i wud say.

    So Finally went to toyota sharaefaisal, and was utterly surprised to hear wht they said, tht cr manager said " Never drive the new toyota in rain, because its engine is electronic which wud get jammed" hahaha, to which i said to him then whts the use of buying this 20 lakh car, v shud buy a 5,000 sohrab :p Anyways tht crack toyota cr manager said water wud go in all toyota cars, we cant cover it under warranty, u can go for the insurance, so the fact of the matter is like all things in pakistan the automobile comapnies are also a big mess especially toyota! My advice never buy toyota cars, donot knw abt honda, if this happens in tht car or not.

    About Water Getting Into New Corolla...So There Might Be Some Leaks Under Or On Sides Making Water Inside....Or Water Levels Were To High Enough To Get Inn....!!


    Possibly The Drains Boots Under Carpet Might Have Been Missing Or Leaked....!!
