WaterLeak Found With Pics

Post by Gary406 » Mon Jan 10, 2011 12:56 pm

i found a water leak from the body work into the boot. may be worth checking yours
on the 1st pic you can see the white bit right at the side of the boot seal , this is the old flexi seal thats gone hard and bristle and is now letting water past
the 2nd and 3rd pictures are arrowed , these arrows point to a metal flap inside the boot, it must be were the boot meets the rear quater
water is getting in there and running around the flap (arrowed) and into the boot
