    Damp in the boot.

    Just went out to my car to find my trainers and i opened the boot and found the carpet/mat in the boot was damp.. Its on the right had side near the boot door. I wondered if any one else had this sort of problem as i dont know where it is coming from.. Any help will be thankful Cheers.

    btw sorry if this is the wrong forum to put it in but i didnt know what one was the right one.

    Its the right forum. Ive not had problems myself, all i can suggest is. take the carpet out the bottom save it soaking up all the water an going funny.
    Clean the seals around the boot an look for any damage only other way to do it is pour water over the car to find the leak

    How to fix them damned leaks

    Hi,

    The boot of my girlfriend's Corsa used to get lots of of water every time it rained. The water would even drip under the rear seats, and after some days the smell was foul. The car windows also got too foggy.

    After *a lot* of detective work (hosing the car inch by inch) I found no less than four leaks:
    - Rubber bung under the spare wheel: I replaced it with a plastic cap from a bottle of cheap wine (perfect diameter!)
    - 2 cracks in the bodywork, in welding joints: I tried to plug them with silicone, but I could only fix them for good using plastic cement (a kind of glue that hardens like cement after mixing two kind of paste, it will last for ever).
    - Washer (seal) under right rear light: I fixed this one by simply reversing it. Let's see how long this fix lasts, though.

    By far most of the water was coming from the two cracks in welding joints of the bodywork. One crack (visible outside the car, behind the rear bumper on the right) and the rear light washer would leak water even when the car was parked. The other crack (visible inside the car, on the inside of the right mud guard) and the bung would only leak with the car moving.

    All in all, great engineering, isn't it?

    If I can find out how to upload pictures, and if anyone cares, I could upload three shots of the offending areas.

    Take care.
