Suzuki SX4 S-Cross - water ingress and garage bill - philonenko

I've had an issue with water ingress in the driver's footwell after the recent downpours. I've been to the local dealership who have now looked at the car and think that the ingress is due to leaves blocking the drain holes under the windscreen. They want to charge five hours' of labour at £92 per hour for draining the holes. I told them I found this excessive and they've agreed to charge me for thee hours. Is this really how long it takes to get to the holes and drain them?

I would say 1- 2 hours is more realistic. Probably have to remove the wiper mechanism and a few plastic trims .

That's what I thought too. He said he also had to remove the wheel.

Very likely, how long does that take !!! ? Perhaps they charge per nut to take the wheel off ?

Try and find a good independent garage with a bit of flexible wire should sort it in know time!
