    Default baffled?????????

    to try and find source of water in boot (have replaced aerial base and sealed it already) have today looked at rivet under roof rail. it is slightly loose - should it be? so poured water, then put hose pipe on it, but no water. decided to check aerial again, no water. put hose over rear lights, no water. bit stumped now what to do next.

    Open the tailgate and have a look at the seam sealer in the circled area where the panels join, seen a few leak here in the past...

    Thanks for help. Will check both areas. The water does appear to be coming in by fuses. Can see water stains running down and when open side compartment its wet on boot floor. Not today however.

    Mine leaked in the circled area, the seam sealer had very tiny cracks in it from age / weathering. If its leaking in this area water will run down the inside of the pillar channel, put your head in the boot (fuse box area) and look directly upwards towards the parcel shelf supports. There is a metal channel that comes from the roof/pillar area, this is where the water will appear if its leaking from the seams. Hth.....

    After doing my water test and no water leaking in I never used the car for 2 days while in work. Before I used it today checked boot again and dry. However after driving round for bit looked in boot and quite a lot of water again in spare wheel space. So does this help anyone in knowing were leak is as its obviously collecting but not leaking thru into movement of car dislodges it.

    Rear Quarter glass is a common water ingress area mate, you have to take out all the side inertia boot panel to get to it properly.

    How about the rear washer jet? Seeing as it happens when the car is moving, just an idea?
