    Default Wheel well filling with water?

    My spare wheel well keeps filling with water, only a small covering but its more than should be in there, is this simply condensation that has run down the rear window and collected here?

    How can i stop it?

    cheers, is it easy enough to pop the aerial out? i understand the roof lining will have to be dropped but is it much more difficult than that?

    there are so many more things it could be so i would start with the easiest first mucker ,
    mine was sealent cracked on top left inner boot where it was welded at the factory,or could be the gutter clips broke,could be glass seal gone but it always drips on the inner compartments left or right you just got to get a hose and work upwards muck good news is though they all do-able so good luck

    I had the same problem not so long ago, all fixed now.

    Mine turned out being as simple as the rear lights were not tight, the water was running down the back of the light, down the cables and into the spare wheel area. (Got a Signum, so could be slightly different to the Vec's)

    Just make sure that the seal on the back of the light (Between the light and the actual car is sealing properly.

    Hope this helps
