    Also , I had the tailgate split pipe. But the main culprit for me was the drivers side front wing where there is a joint that had come apart and was persistently leaking out. This was bumper off and a pig to fix but do-able. Just got some replacement 4mm I'd silicone hose and clips and new joint.

    It can also leak underneath the subwoofer so check if the underlay around the rear wheelarch is wet inside the passenger side cubbyhole in the boot

    Hey!

    that's uncanny- that's exactly what's just happened to me!

    Except I've got water pissing out of the passenger side rear of the car underneath (right underneath the subwoofer)

    What's the best way to handle this AndyMac?? -have I got to take the whole interior rear panel off, or can I take the subwoofer out in situ? Autochanger first?

    Thanks

    The pipe sits behind the sub. Since I don't use them I took the cd changer and sub completely out! Trims all had to come out
