    Default Boot well water/ Condensation

    Thought I'd give the car a check over today, found some water in the spare wheel well, not a lot, just hoping that with all this cold weather etc we've had that it's just condensation that's run down in there as there doesn't appear to be any evidence of water elsewhere that I can see and not even any on the painted sound deadening pads just before it goes down into the well, so as said, just guessing it must just be condensation droplets that have run down in there from over the last couple of weeks, anyone else finding the same at all?
    Cheers Pete

    I have not really looked there. But I am finding the windows have condensated up on the inside several times when I have come to go home from work. If it is anything to go by so have many of my mates cars of different makes.

    Check the boot seal and rear lights, My boot seal has gone and is letting water run through and in and its accumulating under the rear seat, could only see this now the whole interior is out

    Cheers for the replies guys, all seems dry elsewhere even in the rear light area/ cubby hole areas, so I just hope it's just the condensation issue rather than anything else but will have to monitor I think, especially after the next lot of rain we get (won't have to wait long for that i reckon!!)
    Cheers Pete
    P.S happy New year

    i found exactly the same today while removing my sub and amp, Checked all around the boot for water trails and marks but nothin to see. Cleaned the wheel well, also going to monitor it.

    Have been keeping an eye on mine and I think it is condensation as there doesn't appear to be any evidence of it leaking, i.e light cluster areas etc are dry.

    If the water comes back, then do a search - there's quite a few posts on here that'll explain the places in can get in, like the aerial, the rear clips for the roof rails, the seam under the roof rails, and the rear quarterlights...
