Water collects around the boot/trunk

Does anybody know if its normal for a small pond to form when it rains in the place where the gas struts that lift and hold the boot are located, see pictures

Grim builds up between where the bumper join is below and blocks the channel therefore the water builds up, it still shouldn't leak into the boot however.

I use a cable tie and push between the gap and wiggle it to dislodge the grim, you'll then see the water flow free and exit out of the car by the exhausts.

Good tip thanks, all this time and I'd never noticed/heard of this!.. probably as I don't use the boot much.. Anyhow cleaned mine up and cable ties used to clear the drain slits.

Before - blocked+swimming!



After - flowing, cables ties in place as an example, then removed and kept in door basket.
