Hope someone can help,not sure if this is a common fault/problem!! Only had streetka 2 weeks, and after replacing solenoid for boot I have another problem.
It rained like billy'o' here last night so might just be a one off but doubt it. when I got into car this morning the footwells were full of water and i mean puddles not just wet carpet but water about 3mm above the carpet, both passenger and driver side.
Now I do park on the drive which faces downhill, but thinking it about it now as i'm typing i thought this would of helped the water run away!!
So,my question is ........how the wells filled up with water, where it would come from and WHY????
Cheers in advance

When you replaced the boot lock solenoid did you disturb the lock alignment?
You may have left a gap between the hatch and the boot seal which allowed water to run in, off the roof and over the seal on the lip.

Not sure as it was done by the garage I purchased it from, under the 1 month warranty he gave me, is there anyway of knowing the route the water would have taken i.e what else would still be wet.

Check your spare wheel well for water or see if your boot carpet is wetting.
I'd give the boot lid a push when it's locked to see if there is any give, i.e. Do the sides feel like they are not firmly against the seals.
The bolts on the lock may be loose or the adjusters on the catch the lock engages with max be out of position.
On some Fords the adjustment is on the lock itself and on others the adjustment is on the catch.
