    Water in spare wheel well

    Forum Key Rings
    OK went to put some air in tyre and noticed water mark at side of wheel well. Removed everything to find quite a bit of water sat there. Really clean, not being there Long. Looked on forum, so many places it could be coming form. Anyone else had this and best place to start looking? Soaked all up with microfibre, will check daily.

    Pull the carpet walling away on driver side, and there’s a recess gap, stick your fingers in there if it’s soaking the hole i had leaking. I had sealed absolutely everything else that could have been, until finally found this. I cut the inside panel away with grinder to get to it.

    As you can see I silicones the vent up too. Thinking it was this many months before. Took me over a year to find the damn leak

    Apparently behind the bumper bracket there’s a hole that Vauxhall cover with a paper like sticker. That breaks down over time and degrades. Hense letting the water inside the car.
