I'm a soon to be owner of a CMAX, trading in a muched loved Vauxhall Zaferia, looking at the second hand market wanting an 07 plate(cant afford new or a later model), test driven two, 1st one was a smoker, 2nd one lovely, a style model but with the zetec spec, alloys, black interior, sport seats and a panoramic roof, im not usually a person requiring all the mod cons but i like the alloys, Style are just plastic trim, and the milage is the biggest draw at 14,000, but on inspection found water in the boot along the two side channels, could be from the boot being open or a careless valet, but the boot carpet did smell damp and on driven away from the car i did notice the back wind screen was misted, so suspecting a bigger problem, showroom are investigating and will guarentee any work done to recitify the problem, was just wondering if any one else has had the problem

I noticed a small pool of water on the drivers side of the wheel well, coming from under the plastic boot liner. I'd been through a car wash a few days previously (for the 1st time of ownership) so am hoping this is only due to the deluge of water.

However, I've carried out an advanced search here to find other similar posts and found these:






To summarise possibilities:

Boot seal gone
Boot hinge seam needs sealing
Boot mis-aligned
Boot lock passing water
Rear spoiler mounting bolts leaking
Roof strips / roof rack monting points: leaking
Rear light cluster seal leaking
Rear wheel arch misfitted / damaged
Rear wiper arm seal leaking (or if at front Radio ariel seal leaking)
One other not mentioned - window seal leaking ???
