Hey guys

Recently I noticed my boot carpet was wet in the corners, I decided to do some investigation work and after removing my spare wheel, there was a big puddle it was sitting it.

I soaked up the water with a towel (took a while) but noticed even my back seats were quite wet. I took away some of the interior and there was wet patches all in the boot area

I checked elsewhere but just seems to be a leak resulting in water around the boot/back area of the car

Any ideas?

I have phoned up a few garages but want to charge me and arm and a leg to diagnose and fix

My car is Peugeot 107 (2013) 3 door

Any advice would be great

Thanks

Rob

Many thanks! I'm quite the newbie when it comes to this, is this hard to do? Is there a guide I can see to do this?

Nah hi level unscrews and the rear lights are 2 10mm bolts per side easy peasy!

I just used regular bathroom sealent worked perfect and has lasted 2 scottish winters without fail.

Just go nuts with the stuff ans seal from the inside aswell behind the roof lining and the back panels to make sure it seals

"Calling brixtonboy, calling brixtonboy, leaking bug help needed in aisle 4." ;)

Seriously, brixtonboy had a long-running battle with leaks in his car so he may well have some good advice.

Hi you sound just like me, if you take the spare wheel out in the floor pan are 2 rubber plugs. They are supposed to be removed should you have a flat in the rain, they let the water out. After 4 years l have never put mine back.
I did all the suggested things that my colleagues have said but none solved it for me.
If they don't work on your car, get a friend to spray a hose with a fair amount of pressure on your car, after taking out the buttons on the carpet you'll be able to pull it up and hopefully see the entry point.
It could also be that the boot latch needs adjusting, making the rubber a better more watertight fit around the back of your car.
Keep in mind that my car is 2006 with over 90,000 on it l've had it 6 years yours is fairly new.
I found my fault by trial and error it was the boot seal.
They modified it, but l believe your car has the new one fitted already.

Hi mate, many thanks for the advice! Quick update, taken everything out of the boot, all now being left to dry in the house, looks very unsightly haha! Lots of water by the sides by the brake lights so getting sealant tomorrow and will attempt to apply this. I'm not the best at car DIY so enlisting the dad to help
me out and YouTube! I'm assuming I take out the light clusters, apply sealant then put the cluster back in? Or so I take it out, give it a clean, put the cluster back in then apply sealant around the edge? Such a novice question I bet haha!
