i noticed yesterday that ive got a water feature in the boot of my car!! had about 4 inches of the wet stuff where the spare wheel is!!

it seems the water is coming in through one of the lights :nervous: ive undone the 5 nuts inside the boot and the screws and wiring but the light wont budge, am i missing something?

please help, i want to get this sorted before the ducks move in

They are bonded in with a black bitumen sealant. A pig to remove and clean off too

have a little search for the word sealant and you might find a thread

To get the rear light unit off, get a hair dryer and heat up the area around the unit from inside the boot, you'll have it off in a couple of minutes.
