Could use some advice:
So I am going to be out of the country for 2 months but before I left, my SmartCar had a rear window that could not be fully closed no matter what; issues with the latch/lock. There is a noticeable gap in there which is large enough to let rain come in. And I’m already gone; couldn’t fix the issue in time before having to go catch the airplane. Currently, uh…7,000+ miles away from the car.
I’ve considered asking a friend to tape over the running gap with waterproof tape or maybe mailing the keys to her and asking her to drive it to her garage or something. Worst comes worst, if moisture does get into the car and the mold and mildew grows for two months, do I have to have the interior sanitized and the carpet ripped out and replaced? It’s complicated by the fact that the it’s above where the engine and fuel tank are located, too.
