Water issue

Recommended Posts

Just wondering has anyone had an occasion when they found water getting into the front boot.

 

i opened the boot a day after the biggest downpour ever only to find water in the boot, yet I cannot see where it got in.

I think you will find the water enters through the door latches. If you put a piece of grey 50mm tape over the latches and see if it leaks then. I modified mine to stop the boot getting wet

As well as the latches, it could be the seal on the boot doors, and there is a small drain hole in the bottom edge of each door. I replaced the seals with a better product than the original (Bunnings has a huge range), put a small piece of fine plastic pipe into the holes (don't push in far), and at Kedron's suggestion,  filled the gaps around the latches with a heavy grease. I used wheel bearing grease as it has a high melting point. It ain't pretty but it works!
