Water in boot spare tyre pan.

Recommended Posts

Hi. My 66 plate Aygo is a swimming pool. Bought her in July this year. Vac boot liner at w/end noticed driver side of the boot carpet drenched, side carpet dry. 

I have a horse so thought I'd spilt water. Took mat out to dry, replaced with some thick foam. On getting stuff out of boot. Water on foam same place as was on carpet, lifted and it's like a swimming pool under there, the carpet must of absorb so much I didn't notice before. 

I've looked under both arches, boot seal, windows and doors seal good, I know we have had big rain recently but she's not even 3 yet! 

I welcome your thoughts, even silly ones. Ta.

Does the Aygo have boot vents  behind the bumper?  The seals are prone to failing on them on some other models.

A 2016 Model with less than 100,000 miles is still under warranty get it to a dealer to be looked at.

Someone in France had this common problem. It's  caused by bad sealing used in the build, strangely. If on warranty, obviously let Toyota mess with it, otherwise it could be a leak from where the rear rubber boot door/window joint pushes onto the metal body rim, all three rear lights, or, as this French owner found, the little round rubber bump-stop badly sealed to the Shell.

Use the black sealer. Loctite do one.

The OP has a 66 registration Aygo this makes the car a late 2016 MK2 Aygo which is completely different from the MK1 example you refer to.

I wouldn't know what a 66 reg equates to, but are you saying the 2016 cars don't have bump-stop rubbers?

The other measures the French owner used were removing the boot sealing strip, cleaning and blow drying the slot which goes over the metal Shell lip, and then running the black sealant inside the slip once dry, and that stoped the water getting in via the lip/joint interface. he also sealed all three lights.

Hi

For years I've been saying...I'm so glad my booty ain't leaking...but yup I have a leak recently discovered.

I have to fix it...sooo

I'm thinking as I replaced my rear lights from the older red look to the newer glassy look...it could be the seal on the reverse of the light unit (only leaking drivers side btw)...now if I take the seal off the older unit and apply it to the newer 1...do u think it'd work? Stuck on with what appears double sided tape.

After that it it's still leaking...I'll go about the top brake light and the 2 stoppers every1 refers to.

After that...is there anything left to seal on an 08 aygo 3 door hatch???

Cheers guys...depressing issue to have...love my aygo
