Possibly solved the boot leak issue.

Look at the bumper with the boot glass open.

You will see on the top edge above the push button release a little drain hole in the design.

This allows the water that falls on the bumper to drain into the bumper - the rain then falls on the mechanism inside and then drips into the boot.

I put a bit of putty on the hole ( its the shape of a slot ) and the boot has stopped leaking. The slot / hole is very small and hard to notice.

You could try and put a bit of blue tack on it as a test to see if it works for you too.

A bit of clear cellotape over the top would work fine too, or if you are taking the bumper off, a bit of gaffer tape on the inside to stop the water dripping in.

Cant seem to upload a picture to the forum, message me and I can PM the picture if still confused.

Its usually the high level brake light, followed by the rear lights, covers 90% of it. I've never come across your leak, but it may explain those leaks that people just don't get to the bottom of, well done for spotting it.
