2005 C240 Leaking Rear Windshield! Help!
I purchased a 2005 C240 from my uncle shortly before he passed away. The Car is like new with 14k miles on it. he had it garage kept. I have had it in the driveway and this past week it rained all week. Got in the car and it stunk to high heaven. Looked around and noticed rear drivers side passenger lap belt water stained, ran my hand up inside seat edge and foam was soakinf wet. I released the rear seat latchs and can see water running down the wires in the rear column next to where a passengers shoulder would be. They looked like they led up to the rear window defroster connection and water was running down them and then dripping into the head column liner and seat foam....Seems to me the way the Benz C240 Rear Windshiled is installed is just with a rubber edge ring and some heavy duty adhesive. What do I do? I am afraid the dealer will charge me a fortune for this issue. HELP! My wife is ticked off. Car smells like a dead buffalo!
