    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default Water pouring in when i open tailgate

    I dont know if this is a common fault or just a 1 off but after its been raining water seems to be collecting and sitting in and around channels by area of the gas strutt on the left hand side of the tailgate so when i open it water pours into the boot.

    Ive inspected the seal and any possable debris that could be obstructing the flow of water but it all looks A1 and looks exactly the same as the otherside so its confused the heck out of me why it only does it on 1 side

    Anybody got any ideas?...its a 06 facelift veccy c by the way

    Thanks

    Try lifting your window wiper arm before you open the boot, and then put it back down when you close it

    Result... This has been bugging me for a while... Every time I open the boot after it's ben raining the water flys off the sides of the window into the boot and trim instead of into the channel it should...

    Glad I now have a way of stopping / reducing this annoying feature of the C!
