    Default Water gets in boot from open Tailgate

    I've got a Vectra C hatchback, and when I open the boot when the cars wet I have noticed that water runs down the side of the window and half way down falls into the boot.

    I've noticed a mention of this in another thread, but it was only in passing.

    Does anyone know if its a know fault, is there a fix....... or do I have to put up with it.


    Cheers
    Richard

    Had my hatchback a week now and with all this rain have noticed the same fault, think it might be a common problem on all hatchbacks?

    open the boot slightly and let it run off before fully opening is the only cure mate.

    Or a Signum!! They had the same problem on earlier models until they produced a field remedy to sort it out. Got mine done and no more wet boot contents!
