Gt leaking boot

I have a leaky boot after heavy rain on my gt, there is a trickle of water on the inside, coming down from the plastic trim with the small compartment on the right down to the boot floor. My whole boot floor is soaked so I assume it is quite bad.
Any body had this before or any ideas where it could be coming from? Is this a common thing?

Mine did it once but not since and we've had a load of rain here

I just put in down to maybe being the angle that the car was parked on (half on path facing uphill) and rain direction .

Me too! Sounds like the same symptoms: OS cubby hole. I also had a little drip onto the bulkhead on the OS forward of the cubby hole. Can't trace it.

Suggestions in other threads include:
1. Boot seal
2. Rear light cluster seal
3. Hatch out of alignment
4. Dodgy welding
5. Ingresss through hinges
6. Faulty weld on rear of O/S roof channel, just under rubber strip

Taking into the bodyshop on Wednesday for them to have a look. Will report back.
