Re: Water leak at tow bar

The chassis ends were filled with expanding foam.... which didn't fix it, so I don't think the towbar was the problem after all.
In the end I drilled a 2mm hole in each rear corner of the plastic wheel-well, and now have a dry boot. I suspect the seal on the horizontal joint across the rear of the boot for the wheel-well leaks. I'll add some silicone sealant allong the joint... if we ever get some dry weather.

Its a pity the Renault dealer(s) didn't fix it (even though car had manufacturers warranty) They just scared the me off by saying they would charge if it turned out to be the tow-bar fitters fault !
