Water seems to be getting into my boot, and alot of it, i found out the hardway when i left my stereo after letting my mate borrow it in my car to find out it was soaked next day, havn't turned it on yet.

Any way i want to get this fixed - was just wanderring if this is a common problem or not ? How much approx would i be looking at to get this fixed ? Where should i take it ?

rubber seal has had it.

you can:
replace it..... and maintain the leaks.
or modify.. I've heard of people drilling 2 holes in the cavity and running drain pipes to the arches.

me: I reverse park down hill



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.

replace the rubber seals... if it happens too often before u do replace the seals, your gonna get a niiiiiiice funky smell through your car...

hahahahaha just pictured it. i pictured me doing it too. then i pictured the damage on both my car and the other one. wasnt a nice imagination.



"If it aint broke, dont fix it" ...he clearly doesn't have a car to play with.
