    Check the rubber seal around the rear lights - that can be a culprit. If you've had the lights off for any reason lately then that could be a prime candidate.

    Quarter glass is another good one and seal around Ariel has also been a culprit, water runs down the wire and into boot.

    it can also leak in via a poorley sealed on rear lip spolier, they may not have used enough sealant in the factory..

    we had a fishpond in the back of the CDTi, and one 'hosepipe' test later with an apprentice sat in the boot had him shouting and pointing into the de-trimmed hatch, it was flooding in the mounting holes..removed and resealed with silkaflex
