Ford Focus Mk.2 Estate Boot Water Ingress

28 December 2012 - 01:11 PM

Hi all,

I hope the forum can help me here. I have had water ingress in the luggage area of the boot boot of my Focus estate for the last 3 months. Over that time, it has been into the dealer 3 times and the leak has still not been fixed. The have done the following:

-Put sealant round the tailgate hinges (a common source of ingress apparently)
-Had the roof lining away and still not been able to pinpoint the leak source

Alas, this has still not fixed it and water is still coming in though the rear plastic 'vents' on the inside of the rear pillars. Taking the tailgate seals away and looking inside the (soaked) lining indicates water is still coming in from somewhere, and the lining is soaked up to 2-3 inches from the top corner of the tailgate. This might indicate that the leak is coming from that area. This problem is occurring in both the right and the left hand side of the car, bust mostly on the left.

My car also has t-track roof rack fixings.

I really hope someone can help me here! The car is perfect besides this.

All the best and a belated Merry Christmas to you all!
