    Default Mehran - Water entered on floor of car

    After today rain, water entered on car floor & carpet is wet. Although all the water is drained out and I had clean carpet with the help of cloth.

    Now my question is that will it be fine if I leave carpet as it is or do I need general wash!

    remove carpet let it dry in sun when sky clears,, then chek if theres still some water,, if possible wash its floor to remove stuck mud
    i also expected water to enter my car today but surprisingly it did not enter,, may be cultus have better door seals

    Get every thing out along with carpet, i mean Namda, other wise it will create odor if leave as it is for an extended period of time, if its not that much wet than get the carpet out and park the car in open sky with clear sun, and leave the door and windows open, but may be you have do this practice for more than one day.
    Last option is go for general service.

    Gentleman it happens with all the cars but is very common with our local made vehicles, floor holes are plugged with rubber. These rubber plugs tend to get loose and let water and moisture enter the car. Water reaching door height is very rare and exceptional case. Better take its seats, carpet and floor mats off, Wash the carpet and inside car dry it and re install rubber plugs with silicon this way these wont be loose and your car will be good untill you need to wash it and plugs are removed. You can do it at home (not a big deal) or have it done from a workshop.

    Not recommended, these holes are here so that if you need to wash you car water could drain. Kind of pressure service station guys use it is very common that these rubber plugs get displaced. Cheapest remedy is silicon a tube worth 100 Rs will be enough for this job. It is upto you that you do it yourself or get it done (anyone would charge Rs 500 for this job)

    You can also use bonding glue on those rubber plugs. Like Samad Bond etc.

    Guys,

    This is not a big deal, our cars are made to run on road not for going in water deeper than a foot, weather has been killer all you can do is take precautionary measures so that these cars do not get rust because of this water.

    Think of those whose cars got failed in water and stranded their owners no mans land.

    The water tends to enter from the engine compartment ,the seals over there are missing ,the water enters from floor no matter how much silicon you put up on the rubber seals ..poor build quality is the main reason.i have tried alot alot to stop water coming inside but water makes it way from anywhere in mehran- - - YOU wash the engine and then check out the floor will be all wet .. Pour water on the windshield you wil be amazed and furious to find out that the carpet has got wet eh .

    What should we do as precaution after the rains/dried up weather for the suspension?
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?
