Thread: Boot water leak

    Boot water leak

    Hi there, I don't know if it's the corret place for this thread...


    I've found that, under rain or car-washing, the boot ends up like a swimming pool

    I don't know where it's coming from but I thought that maybe you could tell me the "usual" seals/etc that usually fail?


    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Boot water leak

    Mine had a small leak around the spoiler "gasket" not where the spoiler goes through,but where the rubber gasket is screwed to the boot. I just took the spoiler off,undid the two screws,lifted the gasket off,cleaned area,and used some gasket sealer !(silicone) All cured ,5-10 minutes
    Rubber gasket obsolete

    Boot seal, spoiler mounts, light cluster seals and that's about it.

    Re: Boot water leak

    hey, thanks for these quick replies

    I had the badge holes leak some time ago, but since I shaved them, that's been fixed.

    Tail lights aren't leaking as I also had this problem before and sealed them propperly

    I'll have a look at the spoiler seals


    I'm also thinking about roof stripes draining pipes maybe?
    Or rear side "windows" leaking maybe?

    Re: Boot water leak

    best bet, remove boot carpets, fold rear seats down, dry boot as best as you can, with a torch get in the boot, and get some with a hose spray the tailgate area and check for a leak. seal, repair leak and re-test.

    Re: Boot water leak

    you could also remove everything, dust with talcum and then use your hose. You'll see the water tracks pretty quick.

    Re: Boot water leak

    Had the same problem...Noticed a puddle of water had collected in the boot a few days back but couldn not work out where it was coming from....So today noticed a heavy downpour I ran to my car like a mad man. Folded my rear seat back and laid there in the boot in wait

    Sure enough there it was. Leak coming through at the rear driver side corrado badge lug area. Gonna seal this area good and proper when I get a chance.

    Re: Boot water leak

    I found that the p/s spoiler seal was bended and so allowing water in. The wires of the fog and back-gear lights were rusted due to contact with water. It took me 2 hrs to remove the seal as one of the nuts had been rounded so I had to drill it out, replace, and seal the seal with silicone


    I checked tail lights + plate number surround + badge holes for leaks and found they were OK.




    I'll continue with the investigation this afternoon.


    thank you all for the ideas
