tailgate water leaking

Post by pase » Wed Jun 09, 2021 7:22 pm

Hi guys and girls,

What do you think from where is this water leaking? The trunk space is dry, the water goes inside the trunk plastic and it drains on trunk lock and "triangle space"
It leaks after washing and raining on the boot lock and "triangle space".
I siliconed the holes of the number plate, its not from them.
The entire trunk door on this 3008 2017+ is plastic, the whole plastic cannot be taken off.

The windshield is fabric, it was not changed.
Here is a video if the leaking

Hi I think it's a 3008 manufacturing fault because our 2015 failed it's MOT last year because the light on the number plate wasn't working anyway cut a long story short the mechanic found that the wiring under the boot was corroded we have a few electrical issues with this model

Tnx for your reply man.
Today i went to official service, they told me that this cant be repaired, only to change the entire tailgate door.
I tought they would take of the windshield, cuz the water enters somewhere between lower windshield edge and that piano black palstic

Fixed. The black plastic moulding on the junction with the tailgate plastic had some gaps, we saw this clearly after removing the windshield. The mechanic sealed it with the windshield rubber and its ok now.
When we took of the windshield the old fabric rubber seal on one side was not low enough placed to cover the both plastic.
