Water leaked into the engine of my van and now its ruined the ABS - what can I do?

My 2013 Peugeot Boxer had water leak into the engine compartment, this has been happening from new. It's damaged the computer and the ABS system. Estimated repairs are £3000 and the van has only done 16,000 miles. What do I do?

This was already listed as a fault in our Vans section: Problem of water ingress from the windscreen area onto the fuel injectors in the engine. Fiat seemed to have solved the problem, but Peugeot not quite. A small plate was fitted to deflect the water and some sealant applied around the skirting. Now less water gets to the injectors, but on occasions one or two of them are surrounded by water. As long as you have not removed anything, and as long as you have had the vehicle dealer serviced, then the water leak can be regarded as a fundamental fault of the vehicle present from new and the supplying dealer is legally liable for the consequential damage to the ECU and the ABS module.
