boot leaking water

Post by marcus85 » Fri Nov 11, 2011 1:36 am

hi bros,

need some help. I've been facing water leaking into my boot. Now especially rainy season, i could keep goldfish in the area where i keep the spare tyre.

Anyone experienced this problem before or any workshops to recommend to fix this?

thanks

Used to Face the same prob. I found the cause of leak after a 6 month test an errand. I realise the leak to be if your car is hatch to be the rubber lining of the rear window panel. I bought silicon from hardware shop and patch myself. If its 4dr which I have driven the ek, the leak was at the side panel which has a small opening and I silicon that up too.

if rear seats wet during heavy rain, check the slots where the rear seat belts come out....most likely water coming in from there and trickle down the seat belts to the rear seat.
