    Possibly the aerial leaking and letting water into your boot.

    Do you normally have the Air Conditioning running all the time?
    At this time of year the external temperature is below 5'C so the Air Conditioning does not operate
    Therefore condensation build up is inevitable, especially if you leave the car out of use for at least 24 hours

    Try parking the car in a position where the car will receive sunlight to the front between 09:00 and 11:00, this will probably solve the problem

    But it does still work as a dehumidifier, its only the cooling function that stops at lower temps.

    my back window does this, i've not noticed any leaks in the boot though.

    i have heard in the past that filling the boot storage bins makes it worse.

    aparently, these need to be kept partially clear in order to aid airlow when the car is moving.

    seems a waste of space to me tho
