SCRS Quick Tips: Water Leak Test for Quality Control


Share This:


Mike Anderson of Collision Advice and Danny Gredinberg of DEG, in partnership with the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS), present Quick Tips for those in the collision industry.

Safe and proper repairs are a result of thorough quality control processes in the shop. One of the tests that needs to be performed at the completion of the repair is to ensure there are no water leaks as a result of replacing glass or panels like doors, decklids or lamps, or even after repairing or adjusting parts and components. Water leak tests help to validate there won’t be issues or red flags for the consumer.


In the video, Danny and Mike discuss labor time does not include time to test for water leaks---with the exceptions of fixed or stationary glass. Keep in mind some operations may require more than one technician in the inspection process.  


Understand the variables and diagnostic steps that may be necessary to validate the vehicle is watertight, or if water leakage is related to the loss or the repair.
