Water leak

Post by -JC- » Wed Aug 11, 2021 1:58 pm

I thought I'd cured this, but sat in the back the other day when it was pouring with rain out, and I could see a dribble from near the boot hinge mounting point passenger side. Is that likely to be a sunroof drain pipe issue? Any easy way to fix?

I think I have this same issue, bloody annoying, fills up the inner wing with rainwater!

The rear washer jet springs to mind, as a place for water to get in or maybe a split in the pipe and so leaking when used?
The sunroof / drain could also be a source but im unsure of the route the pipes take?

Is the washer jet not on the drivers side?

Rear washer jet is on the passenger side under the side wheel cover

The jet is on the roof, the bottle is the boot.

Mine is passenger side. Not the bottle either, it's higher than that
