Water in cargo compartment

Post by KjGry »



I have recently bought a 2002 model and had the first day with rain. Discovered lot of water in the top cargo compartment who was coming from the back lights. Anyone who has some good experience how to solve this?

Are you talking about getting water in the trunk? If so, I would remove the lights and replace the rubber washers on the posts. If you are not the original owner, the previous may have changed the fixtures or bulbs and not put the washers back.

Yes, it was in the trunk, rubber ring seems to be OK, and both covers also on place. Could be that I have to order new seals.
