think i've discovered the problem!

my car is parked usually facing downhill... so when it rains, the water runs off the boot & rear window, into the tracks designed to trace it down the back & drain away - however because its on the down-facing angle, it has no-where to go, so eventually overflows both over the outside, and inside over the rubbers & into the boot, and therefore into the wheel-well!

so - does this theory hold water? :lol:


Yeah, sounds like a good theory, try parking it around the other way for awhile see if the problem disappears.

When mine used to leak, it would only do it when parked downhill as well.
