    Default ffreeezzzing part 2 (water in boot wheel well)

    hi there muckers

    this is the second part about frost on inside the windows,what i have found is that there is water in the spare wheel well, about half inch.
    so i am really asking everyone if they can help as this is get on me nerves now coz the weather wont let me get to find the leak.

    this is wot ive found so far

    water in wheel well
    water on the inside of the rear compartments behind light clusters.
    water on the inside of the rear wings
    the carpet is dry though and the rear parcel shelf

    the only thing that i have noticed that is faulty is the ariel on the roof the seal has perished would that allow water to run through the body.
    the boot seal looks good.
    could it be from the rear light clusters
    now i am persuming it is coming from above but could be coming from the road but aint had the chance to look yet (fricken weather)
    any help would be fantastic
    cheers all
    mark

    Does the boot shut tight, with it shut, does it have some movement if you lean on it..?

    Do a seach using the button at the top of the page - there's loads on here about what could cause the boot to leak and how to fix them all.

    had this with the cav mate. had to dry it out, shut the boot romoving carpet in the boot, lower back seats and have someone spray a hose over the car while your inside seeing where the water is getting in.
    mine was a seal around the tailgate.
    seems alot of trouble but the only way
