    Take out the boot floor and the spare wheel and check for water in the wheel well and make sure the drains are clear.
    There are a couple of places where water could be getting in such as the rubber seals around the boot opening or the lights.

    Use the aircon to help remove residual moisture too.

    I have the same mate,generally the cars are prone to this and theres not much you can do apart from running the air con continually,i have no leaks and it still does it.

    Only one problem with the 'running the aircon' plan of attack..... the ice tends to form when the temp is below about +2c.... the aircon doesn't work below +5c. Plenty of ventilation certainly helps though.
