Got any goldfish?

I was met with a shock the other day when i opened the boot of my 1997 Spider to find the boot with a few inches of water in it. The boot lid rubbers are fine. Where is the water coming from? Any ideas before i open an aquarium?!!!!

Re: Got any goldfish?

If the lid rubbers are fine, I would start by removing as much of the interior trim form the boot as possible and then looking for any places water could be getting in.

Then dry off as much as you can and pour a few buckets of water over the boot area, when you open the boot up (with a bit of luck) you should be able to see where it's getting in.

Also check the seals around the rear lights.
