Maybe it's different in the 2.0...
Its not a matter of 1.6lt or 2.0, but if its 3door or 5door. 3d has fixed rear window, which is glued on the car. I heard that the latest production 147s have two layers of glue on the window instead of one like mine has.
@Panos: No, it wouldnt be easier to take it to the dealer. Dealers are good on the regular services because thats the easy and quick money for them. But when it comes to warranty issues they prefer torturing the client, denying that there is actually a problem with the car, or insisting that they have fixed it and the problem is not gonna appear again. I 'm living it the last two years. Giving the car to the dealer, means that a 19 years old unexperienced kid who tiresomely works to earn 550 euros a month, will take my bella, start searching to locate where the fukin screws and clips are to remove the damned plastics and carpets of the damned crap car, will actually manage to dismantle half the car, leaving marks everywhere, loosing half of the screws, braking clips, cutting the alarm key socket cables which prevents one plastic thing to be removed without marking the colours. Then disconnecting the seat's cable plugs without disconnecting the battery first, and greasing the seat's or upholstery accidentally. And all this for failing to locate the leak's source on the first visit, as usual. Thanks but no thanks. I prefer to try fixing it myself, and if I fail, then I ll go to the dealer beacuse I cant do anything else.
@Thomas: I dont know how did this happen suddenly, maybe it was happening before too, with less intentsity so the water never came up. But then again nothing smelled bad inside my bella since now. Tomorrow afternoon I will remove the B-pillar's plastic cover and try to locate the exact point of leakage and seal it. If this wont work, i will have to get the window replaced. What worries me is the other window.. it could start having the same problem too.. The glue is "παρμπρίζόκολλα", the usual glue they use to fit the windscreen.
I will also take pictures of the holes under the windscreen that seem imo letting water come into the cabin, I ll seal them with silicon, just in case. What would be useful to all of us, some of you guys who had leakage from the area under the windscreen, to post pictures of what do we have to check exactly, some of you said something about a panel missing or misplaced, and some something about a drainage pipe modification. This is critical, its not just a matter of water coming in, but the ECU getting wet as well.
A picture is like 1000 words so if anybody has a chance to post a pic about how to fix this, please enlighten us
