    Hope you all can help on this one.

    i have found a large amount of water sitting in my spare wheel well in the boot. I cannot find out where the water is coming in from.

    Any known problems??? Time for the silicon gun to come out again me thinks.....

    Hi there, it would help if you put some details of your car either in the post or in your sig etc...

    Is it an Avant? Could be water from rear wash wipe?

    Seals around the boot? Leaves and muck etc sitting around the boot?

    Water getting in around lights? Or the rear fog/ number plate panel?

    Try and trace any damp bits of carpet/ trim.... and let us know how you got on.

    I found today that there was a rather large gromet missing in the boot floor right over the rear wheel. I imagine that water was flicking up off the wheel through the hole and into the boot.

    All sealed. lets see what happens..................

    END OF PROBLEM.

    If you have water coming in your boot look for the black square are vents. the seal is piss poor. Silicon them or buy new ones. Trouble is you need to remove the rear bumper. !!!!

    Another problem sorted. Thanks all
