Boot leaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

Hi all(again!!!) I seem to have a problem with a boot leak on the left hand side(IQ3- 2009) and wondered if anybody else has experienced the same thing,ive had the car nearly 4 weeks now and thought the mitsubishi warrenty (i purchased the car from them,it was a part ex)would cover it,but its dosnt cover bodywork!ive taken the bootseal off and used butyl rubber sealant to re seal it but still got water coming in!checked the light housing inside and its totally dry( its higher than the light) ,the top rubber(the round one with cables to back door)is dry,Im scratching my head trying to work this out,if theres an easy answer I would be VERY greatfull before stripping out the whole left hand side ,any advice would be very greatfull,thank you.

On other Toyota models (eg Aygo and Auris for example), water can leak into the boot from vents behind the rear bumper - seals to these can perish in time.

Fixed!!!  Water leak was from the passenger side gutter channel(which it seems is not meant to carry water,as its sealed and put there to cover the seam from body to the roof). The seam between the roof panel and side panel under the gutter trim roof drip rail,(the drip rail had come away from its origional butyl tape sealant and was loose) gets a hairline split in the original panel sealer at the rear end and rainwater creeps in and down the inside of the side pillar, where it drips off into the boot, filling the tool well.
I thoroughly cleaned it out.and primed it with volvo dealership clear plastic primer and  re-sealed it(the gutter seal) with dow corning 785+clear silicone sealant,and no  leak!! hope this helps anybody else with this problem because ive havnt found one(iq) in the world with the same problem on the internet,always check under your toolkit every service for water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've got this issue in my iQ, totally sodden carpet under the polystyrene tool tray.  I can see the top image, that is the boot well.  The second image though, not sure where that is on the vehicle??  Any chance anyone could advise please??

To confirm as well, was the leak coming from the passenger side roof seal then??  Sounds like that rubber seal has failed/perished over time and is allowing water in as a result. 

It's my job for the weekend either way. 👍
