Drying The SAM Unit

If your car start, you really have to lose, you may as well try to dry it out.

I don’t suggest sticking it in the using a hot air gun or taking it apart.

You have 2 options to removing the moisture.

Try heating it up evenly with a dryer on the lowest setting,

The best way is to stick the SAM into a case and zip tie the end closed.

Place it in a bag with a load of uncooked and seal the bag.

Place in your airing cupboard or in a place for as long as you can.

The water should evaporate and be out and held in the rice.

Refit and see if has helped at all. Now try to find the that caused the problem.

If the out SAM works then consider it.

Leaks And The Problems

The obvious with water getting the car is the soggy carpet, initially very hard to spot you lift it up and feel underneath. The can range anywhere between damp and swimming. After first problem you get the extra of the smell that will occur and removing the carpet for isn’t an easy task.

If wing mirror seals you can look forward to soggy which don’t

tend to work for long, the door card fabric can badly from water

Roof seal leaks can onto the seats which cause water marks and are hard

to dry out due to the expanse of foam in each one. The first is a wet bum.

During manufacture, the bulkhead the engine and the cabin is well

using an automotive mastic this is common on many of car. The problem

occurs smart sprayed the tridion the sealant had a chance to dry and as a

The scuttle tray leak is the one does the most damage.

the windscreen wiper motor is a tray, this is mirrored on the side of the car with

the air inlet If the drain ports from 2 trays become blocked, can quickly fill with

Where the top of these trays the scuttle panel they are with a very simple

seal. This is not designed to be and will not hold back water.

Water running the top of the scuttle tray would drip into the footwell but due to

the of wiring in that area the almost always ends up down a few wires.

To make worse, one of the lowest points is the SAM (fuse box). The water gravity and drips into it a host of electrical malfunctions. the SAM unit is water damaged, the option is to replace it at a cost of £400.

Replacing the SAM unit is delaying the inevitable, without the fixed,

the new SAM unit will fall of the water again.
