No pics but im happy to take mine in to the top of the cladding and have done many times with no water getting in axles or interior. In last years floods I accidentally had water over the bonnet (ok hood!) but managed to keep going fast enough to form a good bow wave. No after effects except the alternator would not charge for a couple of miles until the water drained out of it!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

Just a tad bit deep, ended up with water seeping through the door seals.

I dont think that i would want to try that with mine being a gasser. Now if i had the diesel like you, that would be a different story.

this is an amazing photo. I would be very tempted to drive a little fast out of that spot.

Soooo close! I was doing okay until my front end dropped into a hole (I guess that I should say a hole in a hole!). The front was about a foot and a half lower than the back. As the interior filled, the tow strap that we had broke. We had to bail water until my friends could get back with another strap. My son was in the back seat bailing water until they returned. If he hadn't been bailing, it would have reached the fuse box!

Just this morning...My first time.

This isn't deep, but I was stuck on the axle for long enough, while I sorted the winch recovery, to swamp inside. Amp is fried, that's all so far. Stripped out the interior and dried it out. Left carpet out until it dries. Probably take a few days. It's very thick and heavy.



It got to here at the worst point.

Well with my brilliant deduction of the steering wheel and keys being on the wrong side of the car, that puddle gave you a soggy bottom!!!

So much for that snorkel. By the looks of it if you were ever in deep enough for your motor to need a snorkel you'd likely need one too.
