ok my cars been stood for a couple of days due to fitting a bigger turbo/manifold and i went to it today and noticed a pool of water in the boot, the spare wheel well has been removed but theres a dip where the flush plate drops to mee the back pannel and there was about 2 mug fulls of water collected there, seems to of been dripping in under the rear a piller and splashing on the rear strut, where the plastic trim finishes above the rear light has some water on it so its not coming from the rear light as its higher, the holes where the wires feed through from body to boot have been siliconed up a while ago when i first noticed a slight leek so i no its not there either, so ruling out them holes and rear light where else can it be coming from as its quiet bad?

Behind each of the covers you open to change the rear bulbs there is a pipe that should go through a gromit and out to the floor, check they are still in place and not hangine loose. They are some sort of drain from the roof i believe

sunroof drain and i have not got a sunroof. its not the rear lights and if it was the aerial the roof lining would be wet and its not? like i say its gotta be coming from high up above the rear lights as the bottom of the plastic rear quarter trims wet (the rear b pillar plastic that is not rear door card.)

the pipes are nothing to do with the sunroof. my sri without a sunroof had the pipes in. check your rear washer jet. i have had the pipe split before it runs along the roof lining near the pillar

Im not being funny but youve posted a question and people are trying to help you the best they can and you just sit and rubbish all the ideas that everyone has come up with? Surely it has to be one of the things mentioned in this thread
