Rust under Spare Wheel

Post by toadster » Sun Jul 07, 2024 8:31 pm

Lo All :D
After a huge amount of heavy rain I had about an inch or two of water under the spare wheel again :crazy: :roll: :cry:
This is Soooooo annoying :evil:
I did notice water leaking through a section of metal work behind the plastic trim that sits where the boot locking latch is.
I just don't understand how water can be getting to the other side as it would need to be on the inside of the boot rubber :crazy: :crazy: :yawn:
I get this amount of water whilst the car is parked.
Cheers for any ideas guy's :D
Anyone else get this amount of water :?:
