Hi folks,

Hi Rob

I feel your pain, but you'll notice this topic has been covered many times before if you search this forum, i had this problem which at the time was very distressing,especially discovering it the day after buying it.

A few years back i purchased a 2001 1.8 sr Avensis hatchback, For the hell of me i couldn't discover where the water was coming from, as i couldn't live with that horrible smell of dirty water...a soaking boot mat...and the swimming pool itself...i went on a mission to fix it...i remember removing my rear bumper and sealing off some vents that i found to each side of the car that sit behind the bumper...result was i still had the swimming pool as before....so i went on a mad one and silicone sealed all around my boot seal...tail lights...and around the boot strut seals too...what ever it was i fixed it...not a single drop of water after!!!

I'm sorry that i can't help you any more than this but i hope you find your source of water leak and fix it too...goodluck.

Thanks Sammy, how handy it is that I'm a wall and floor tiler then, I attacked it with some clear silicone, I had a look during the rain and it's so obvious where it goes, what a mistake to make toyota. Seems to be fixed and I watch the water safely travel down past the lights and off down past the bumper now :)
