  • Boot lid water

    Hi peeps,



    Has anyone got a fix for water dripping/running into the boot as soon as you open the boot lid on hatchbacks.



    Some here say they open the boot slowly, but that can't be done when it is chucking it down with rain and you want to quickly get back into the car.



    Cheers.

    Doesn't happen on mine, guess I'm just lucky.



    You must be, unless for some reason your boot lid is of a unique design to everybody else's.



    I think some people have used neoprene pipe, wedging it in the gap to reduce the amount of water which can gather in the space.

      Clear silicone in the space round the window stops it.

        No use when it's lashing it down though.

          I've got an ST and a boot liner. If water goes in who cares...

            It is not about the carpet getting wet, but the stuff inside the boot.

                Literally run a bead of clear silicon along the gap at the bottom of the windscreen. This is where the water accumulates & when you open the hatch it runs into the boot. I'll be doing mine as soon as I am off while the car is in my mates garage getting the power steering pressure pipe changed
