    water getting in :(

    i have the common problem on my cupra r were water gets into the boot
    have asked this question on the cupra forum but no reply yet, i know the usual suspect is the rear wiper and rear wiper wipe splittling or coming off, but i have completley removed this and the piping
    yet its still trickling in from each side of the boot near the vents behind the boots plastics and also seem to be a little coming from near the rear badge

    i have siliconed a few places so will see if that help if not am pretty stuck with what it could be

    if anyone can help ect
    cheers george

    new seal...

    or it could even be the seal isn't fitted correctly..

    best thing to do... drop your back seats down and climb inside and see if you can see any light around the boot seal with it closed... if possible get someone to pour some water over the rear while your inside to spot where its coming in from..

    think that will have to be my plan of attack later
    also seen that removing the rear bumper at resealing can help

    also found a couple of people that had same problem but no striaght forward way to solve it, as water seem to be coming in above rear arch but on inside?? and it collects in a small gap behind plastics near a small vent
