So, been suffering with little puddle developing in the little left hand side well in the boot after heavy rains since I’ve had the car. Changed the aerial grommet and has the tail light out to check the seals. Neither of those have stopped the leak. I suspect it comes in somewhere between the panels near the boot hinge. Tonight I took out the plastic grommet in the well, cleaned it up, applied some Vaseline and put it back just in case it was the weak link.

While I was under the car looking at what might need doing at some point I noticed that one of the exhaust hangers appears to be attracting the attention of some local wildlife!

High level brake light seal ?

Finally discovered where the water gets into my boot. Just need to figure out how to seal it. Last photo is not mine, just showing where the water gets in from underneath the rear wing. It must be a very small imperfection in the body sealant allowing it to be drawn in.

Wire wheel it all back and use some tiger seal and paint back over the area once dry. That’s one tricky one to detect.
I was thinking of a less thorough, but equally effective method involving a quick wipe down and hand applying a dollop of something😀. Don’t really want to take the bumper off and open up a can of worms unless I have to.
