Hi All, I have a problem with my 56 c1 and I have took it back to the dealership 3 times with the same problem, and they can't seem to find the cause. My boot is leaking, and I often find a build up of water in the boot well down in with the spare tyre. I have read other posts in regards to leaks but I think this is a bit different as the following have already been tried;

Boot seal replaced for a thicker seal
Boot vent has apparently been sealed
Rear lights have been sealed
Boot hinges have been sealed

I am really frustrated as to where the water is coming from. What should I do?

It'll still be the boot vent I reckon, this is what Hollie (obc1) had the problem with on hers.

Am I right in saying the boot vent is the gap found directly below the boot catch? If so how do you recommend I go about fixing the problem and with what tools, sealants e.t.c. ?

Thanks

The vent is a plastic assembly, so just squirt it full of decent quality sealant. If you're really handy then a better fix is to make up a plate to rivet over the hole, and remove the vent entirely.


Remember as well that the high lever rear brake light can also leak.

Thats great thanks. You say the vent is made of plastic :? am I looking in the wrong place then? Also what sealant would you recommend. I've seen stuff in halfords but its in a stupidly small tube for like £5 which seems like a bit of a rip off to me? Any ideas?

Thanks

Just use normal household silicon - Screwfix 99p type will do. Just make sure surfaces are clean and dry before you apply.

The cars are great, stick with it, they aren't french anyhow, they are all built by Toyota in the Czech Republic.

Many have had this issue fixed.
