    2018 Discovery Td6 HSE Lux Silicon Silver

    Strange that the JLR response is totally different in other countries as this is a well known problem:

    2017 Discovery Td6 HSE Santorini Black

    Seems that I have the same problem, came out in the morning to find water dripping from the head lining around the mirror and passenger side headlining. Sad .......now waiting for LandRover Assist to arrive as local dealer can’t provide a courtesy vehicle till October! Guess my Landrover don’t like the wet weather which might be a problem considering where I live!,

    2018 Discovery Si6 HSE Lux Santorini Black

    No issues with the replacement one thankfully, and been fitted 15 months approximately.

    Original screen was on for 3 months and no issues either.

    I did observe the fitter apply copious amounts of the sealant all the way around though, which was reassuring.

    Looking at the LR screen which was taken off, I did observe that the glue was nowhere as thick as the replacement screen, and seemed to be missing on some areas like it was just splodged on willy nilly. Possibly may have started to leak in the future though.

    Probably another cost cutting exercise to save a few quid on the adhesive, (less is more rubbish). Seems it's backfired, as the number of posts regarding wiring looms replaced, roof liners and carpets it's cost LR thousands. Again charging the customer top dollar for inferior production quality. Pennywise and pound foolish springs to mind.

    My take in it is always do a job properly the first time around. Cutting corners, you end up wasting money and time redoing it all again. Eagerness in my younger days, i have learned the hard way Laughing

    Update on my water leak.......seems that there was an outstanding recall on my Discovery to have a new windscreen fitted.......strange considering that it was with the same dealer just over 2 moths ago for a service and no mention of any outstanding recalls😠....... hopefully have it back by the weekend.......
