This only started during last winter but has continued into the summer. I've read elsewhere on the interweb that this is a fairly common occurrence on the cabriolet but I have yet to find a definitive answer and I was wondering if anyone on here could help?
Basically the boot lid panel fills up with water which pours out when you open it, both from the panel itself but also down the rubber boots carrying the cabling from the car into the boot lid. This ultimately won't be doing any of the boot lid electronics any good (and there's a surprising amount in there).
As you can see in the photos the boot lid is level with the bodywork, the car itself is parked on the level, I have re-sealed the brake-light and the boot handle surround. The boot lid itself is fibreglass and the rubber seal is in good condition. There are no holes or damage to the boot lid or the surround, the hinges and struts all operate correctly. It can happen after rain fall, driving down wet roads or after a wash - basically any water landing on the car ends up behind the grey carpeted panel you can see in photo 5.
All thoughts/speculation/knowledge warmly welcomed!
