One rear light is broke again. We have had rain for a couple of days in the evening. The boot leak is madness, its pouring in everywhere and has broken the towing electrics again. Handy when i'm due to go away tomorrow. This ungrateful heap needs weighed in. If only i had a few quid to by something decent. My enjoyment of old heaps in now nil.

Mine was leaking at the trim clips for the rear window, visible if you lift the rubber along the bottom. It was only a slight drip however.

This has worked for a whole month! Boot leak is the same, never seen so much water in a boot. Now its pissing coolant out again, seems to be a metal pipe that comes from the waterpump. Mate looking at it Saturday.

Apparently thats a common fault rather than the actual w/p leaking which are supposed to be long lived.

It was on the 75 forum on a post where someone thought their diesel w/p was leaking. The pipe is apparently replaceable separately.

Mate looked at the coolant, he says it ok so i will go with that.

 

I really really need to ge the boot leak fixed, everything i do to try and fix it makes it worse. We had light rain last night and it pouring in. It is effecting the tail lights and the remote boot lock too.

 

It  seems to come in everywhere, it runs off the inside of the rear quarter panels from high up near the boot lid. I think* its coming from under the rear screen seal but when i add some more creaping crack stuff it just gets worse.

 

Rimmers sell all the trim clips and rear screen trim but it would cost about £250 all in and there is no guarantee it will fix it. I need to sort it as it buggering up other stuff. Help!

£250! Fuck that. Go over where it might leak with silicone sealant and drill a hole at the lowest point it collects at.

Done the silicone thing, no luck. I would'nt mind but its buggering up the electrics in the boot.

Have you tried a small paintbrush and vaseline. I used that on the Corsas rear light to good effect.

I’d try breakers first. £250 is a bloody lot for some seals. I’d be surprised if they sell any to be honest given a 75 would go for a grand tops.

That's a good shout. I can at least take one off and see what it is like behind and see if there is a chance that's the cause. I have a feeling once i take it off all the clips and stiff will break. But if its a scrap car then that's no bother.

A scrapyard would want probably less than £20 for the seal.

Had a good look underneath this today. Other than rear jacking points it spot on. Topped up the bilthamber uc wax on the rear suspension, subframes and cradle for fuel tank.

I think* the coolant leak is fixed. No drips and no loss in header tank. The thermostat housing was replaced so it looks like it was that. Still need to sort the boot leak out.
