When I got my C-Max about 2 weeks ago I noticed that there was a pool of water in the spare wheel well about 1/4 inch deep.
I initially assumed that it was a leak but part of me hoped that it was just a build up condensation over a long period of time as there are no drainage holes in the base of the wheel well. The carpet wasn't wet and no other signs of water were visible.
However the car has now been subjected to 2 days ofpretty much constant rain and I've nowseen water dripping down the right hand side of the boot and heading towards the wheel well.
The dripsseem to be first visible at the base of the white cover where it touches the top of the parcel shelf rest. From there it tracks its way down past the boot light and 12v power socket and onto, and under the carpet.
I know that this has been mentioned several timesbefore on this site asquite a few others have had this problem,but has anyone actually had this same problem and solved it completely?
I found some info on another site where the owner of an 06 plate Ford Focus found out that his leak (which sounded very similar) was caused by water coming into the car via the bolts that hold on the rear spoiler. He removed the cover and found droplets of water on 2 of the bolts. The water then tracked it's way down the outside of the white cover and onto the boot.
The main difference with mine is that the water seems to be on the inside of the white cover rather than the outside.
Has anyone investigated this area and found it to be the problem as I'd rather not go pulling bits of trim off before taking to the dealers, but as others haven't had much look with their dealers I'd quite like to go there armed with the knowledge of where it's actually coming into the car.
This cars not booked in untilthe 12th of April as that's the earliestthey could fit me in apparently! [img]smileys/smiley5.gif[/img]
