Default 107 Leaks - Quoted Over 200...

Hi chaps,

I have a 2007 Peugeot 107 and there's been quite a bit of water getting into the boot of the car and settling in the spare wheel well. It would pool in the spare wheel well and also get through to the rear passenger foot wells.

I managed to get Peugeot to look at it for free, but they've called me back today and told me that water is entering via the top brake light, top and bottom of the tailgate seal and 'starting' to come through the vents behind the rear bumper.

To repair, including parts, they've quoted 237.91 which seems a ridiculously high amount to me.

I'm wondering whether these are fixes a complete and utter novice can do without any help, or whether you might know of somewhere (I note you're based in Warks, I'm in Coventry!) that might do it for considerably less! From the guide posted here somewhere, I know that the top brake light might be an easy enough fix - but the tailgate weather seal seems like a big job!

Thanks for taking the time to read this

KJ

((And yes, this is essentially a rehash of my message from last year...I left it in the hope it would just go away...))

Absolutely. Peugeot as a rule charge 80+VAT an hour labour. The work can be done by any garage or anyone fairly handy at following instructions, so go for a cheaper garage or tackle it yourself.

Ah, ah complete and utter novice , yet you feel sufficiently qualified to criticise the price charged by a trained engineer?

Visit the How To section and read the article about 107 leaks.

Seems a lot at first but i suppose theres a bit of dismantling involved. I guess a small independant would charge less if you cant do it yourself.
Good Luck

But a small independent won't know what's causing it.

I would definitely let the peugeot garage do the job. They know what and how to do it and there will be guarantee for the job done. If it leaks again, you can just call them again. The independaent garage will probably do a bad job and expect you to pay again if the job is done badly the first time.
