Another soggy floor tale.

Post by wakaday on Sun Dec 13, 2015 2:04 pm

Had a wet patch that kept on growing from the start of the Lounge floor behind the front seats towards the rear. At first I thought it was the Windscreen leaking because the front area was wet as well and i thought it was a a sponge effect. The front carpet stayed dry due to the rubber backing mat doing its job. I pulled out all the front Carpets and Mats and dried the Floor and couldn't find any traces of water coming in. Then i thought it must be the one or both of the side windows because i had an issue with a previous Autosleeper in that area.
No joy. Nice and dry and nothing dripping down the inside walls. Turned my attention to Henry, the Heater and Bingo. Now im not sure if its the Alloy Housing corroded or if its simply just the sealants where its attached to the body. Im hoping its the latter but its raining now and there is footy on the Telly so its another story for another day. up!

All the information you need about changing heater matrix here. They normally leak at the joint where the matrix fits onto the manifold, The replacement does not have a seperate manifold which gets rid of the chance of it leaking again.

All sorted. Removed the Water Heater. Re sealed it against the body and re sealed the mounting plate as well. Poured Buckets of water over it and it's nice and dry inside. Just going to dry out the carpets properly before it goes back together.
