    Default Wet boot!

    Hi, my 54 plate vectra sri cdti is letting water in to the spare wheel well. After washing the car i opened the storage compartments at both sides of the boot and found a small amount of water running down the metal panels (the one the fuse box is attatched to and same on other side). Anyone had this before?

    if the aerial base is cracked/perished this could be your best bet also check the trim that runs the roof edging 'gutter trim' i think its called,this lifts up from the rear,there are clips that are rivited to the car when its being made,these have a little 'foam' washer between the rivit & the roof this does perish,toy can buy a pack of 5 from stealers









    hope this helps mate

    You need to remove the trim inside behind the quarters. Then there's six nuts that hold them in
