MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - Cold water from fascia above frt pas/ger f/well
Have had very cold water coming down into passenger footwell on odd occasions.
thought it may be from AirCon.
Dealer had a look but said not so. Anyone had same problem?
|Poorly put together, I'm afraid.|
|But thinking about it, VW's are probably worse, you only have to look at the latest reliabilty surveys to see German cars are even worse.|
|I see someone has resorted to impersonating me.........|
|The Real Eric|
|Yes in ZS 180 - loose pipe|
|Yup Eric VW's are indeed worse. Two neighbours of mine have VW's - one a new shape Polo and the other a 52 plater Golf. The Polo has been towed away to the dealers 5 times to my knowing and the Golf below a head gasket last week.|
The ariel mast on my ZS + died thank to my ex-gf putting an ariel ball on the end which weighed it down and damaged the connections - oh well!
|VWs are definitely worse, what is going on here? This can't be right.|
|The Real Eric|
|There's always the exception -- my '98 VW GTI VR6 has been fabulous. After some initial glitches with the audio system, the car has been nearly faultless for seven years and 55K miles.|
|I had a Rover 45 Loan car while my 180 was in for some work. This also sprang a leak from the dash into the passenger footwell. This was the Air con pipe from the condensor. The service manager knew exactluy what it was when I reported it , and he fixed it in 2 minutes flat.....|
|VW Golf has nothing on a Lotus Elise when it comes to cold water coming into the footwell (and the rest of the cockpit - and that's with the hood up! LOL). Difference is you know where the cold water is coming from - the heavens! Mind u, means u can have a shower on the way to work...|
|The wife's Ford Contour (Mondeo to the rest of you) decided to spill a fair quantity of cold AC condensate into the front footwells during a family road trip several years ago. We got the leak fixed at a Ford dealership in another state, but by that time the rugs were saturated and ruined, and eventually were replaced under warranty.|
Then after the extended warranty ran out, two major components of the AC failed, several weeks apart... necessitating TWO expensive repair bills. This was shortly after I found myself unemployed, and we were trying to avoid any unnecessary expenses. Not amusing at all.
Anyway, the Ford's working again, as am I. Times are better. I do want to add though, that that Ford has been one of the most troublesome cars we've ever owned. There is such an obvious difference between it and my VW. As I quipped to my wife, "Your car is making my midget look good!"
