Can someone please confirm that they don’t have this hole in their car?

Apparently that’s a drainage hole. Not sure why you would have one so high up.

I can check for you tomorrow Ori. I’m pretty sure there isn’t a hole there on mine. Shame that there’s a snag list with this repair. I fear standards have slipped. For whatever reason it might be. COVID seems to be a good excuse for sloppy workmanship and customer service at the moment and I’d perhaps mention to the dealer that it’s a shame you’re having to come back not once but twice to have things looked at and rectified. You’ll get there.

Would appreciate you checking on your car. It’s a very strange place for a drainage hole.

I don’t know of any drain holes on the high side?
I suspect that it might be a location point used during manufacture and subsequently plugged.

Hope you have reported it to the Police. Perhaps there is CCTV nearby which they have the power to cease. Worth a look to see if there is. Also worth posting on social media with the details. Someone may have dashcam footage. Longshot but worth a go.

I contacted council as I know there is CC tv footage there. They were very good and responded and literally the 2 cameras that are there were pointed in opposite directions and my incident wasn’t seen. :-(
All fixed now though.
