    Default Tailgate water leak

    I thought I may have fixed the little problem on the passeger side rear boot. I have water coming in near to the place the alarm siren is. It's coming from above. I removed the roof rail and notice the last fixing was a little loose, I removed the pop rivet and put a new one in with some sealer. It's still getting water in some how . What else do I need to do before I get Vauxhall to fix it. Cheers

    get the hose pipe out....

    strip the boot liner out, and play water over the car to locate the faulty seal..... works everytime..

    It's raining just now so I don't need the watering can out. It's dripping right on top of my alarm siren. It's peeing me off a little now. I just can't think how it's getting in..

    it could be as simple as a dodgy 1/4 light seal ( not unknown) .... in which case refitting the 1/4 light with seam sealer or silicone always works.. apart from that there's little in the area that could cause it, unless it's running down inside the pillars.. in which case it could even be the seal on the radio aerial....

    the 'hose pipe and look for increase in flow' works, even on a rainy day....

    I noticed one thing that might be the problem. The ariel rubber on the roof is in bits, breaking away. It might be coming in through that?

    Good news, I have found a leak. It's coming from my antenna base. I just nipped out side and stuck my hand up through the head liner, and it's was wet under the base .
