    Default Water in boot - not aerial???????

    Fitted new aerial base due to water in boot. It did look bit perished but roof lining did appear dry and no stains. This was confirmed when today the pond was back following big thaw. The aerial is fitted tight and sealed so confident not problem. Water seems to be leaking in passenger side by fuses. But closer to backseat than rear light looking were water collecting. Believe can leak in in tracks for roof rack? If so what should I be looking at and what's fix? Help appreciated as not had spare wheel/boot mat in place since bought car and frustrating now.

    Leak appears to be more towards back seats rather than rear lights, but will remove clean and tighten to check. Will look at hinges etc. Have checked rubber is all ok. looked at the thread so will now see if I can work out how to get access to that rivet. Help appreciated.

    mine is the same , only way I can think of narrowing it down is using some food colouring at either of the rivets first then roof bar anchors , different colours for different places though .

    My plan after another overall recheck and looked at rivet in roof rail, is to tape up each possibility 1at a time with really strong industrial tape which I know won't leak any water thru. My only concern is it damaging paint work/lacquer when removing it, but bit stumped what else can do.
