Noticed a small buid up of water in my boot well and round the lip of the well is damp. Any one know of any common problems i.e boot seal.
I have taken the back lights out today and there was a massive amout of gunk under the housing, i gather they are not supposed to be water tight?
Can anyone point me in the right direction.
Beer to the first person who gets the correct answer.
the seal's around the bolts between your boot panel and the rear spoiler has perished, and perhaps the seal at the top of the glass in the rear window.
its a common fault on all hatch models from 2005-2011 you just need to remove the rear spoiler, clean the area underneath it and apply a layer of silicone to the area perticuraly around the bolt holes and top of the rear window. then re-fit the spoiler, job done mate,
any normal clear silicone sealent will do nicely, just ensure the area is dry before applying and here is a guide on removing the rear spoiler
i have sealed mine up as a precaution because i knew it would eventually leak at some stage in the future.[url="http://www.focusowners-social.com/forum/posting.php?mode=smilies&f=19#"][img]http://www.focusowners-social.com/forum/images/smilies/beer.gif[/img][/url]
