    Unhappy Condensation and Water....

    Well I had noticed that the windscreen is developing condensation unless I turn the heater up - which eases the problem. Having read a thread on here I will be going and getting a new pollen filter at some point. The aircon works fine too.

    The other thing I have noticed is water in the spare wheel well. I have had a look at the seals on the tailgate after the car has been soaked with rain- and found nothing. I actually think the two are unrelated ie have developed at different times.

    Is there a common part which lets water in?

    Thanks for any help guys.

    it could just be a build up of water accumulated in the spare wheel well from where you open the boot and the water runs into the seals and then down into the boot - all you can do is dry out the car as best as possible and then try again ... as you seem to have found its a vicious circle with condensation as you dry it out and leave the car ...then it cools down and the circle starts again

    Cheers dez, I gave the skuttle a check and the drain is perfectly clear too. Will keep drying it out.

    I've also been informed that the aerial is a source too but I can't see anything unusual regarding possible leaks there.
