451 Rear Hatch Dripping
It's fairly common for the rear hatch to fill with water and this dribbles into the car when you open the hatch
Because of the way the rear hatch is moulded and assembled, it is very easy for water to drain
down between the glass and the plastic surround. This water accumulates until you open the hatch.
That's when the water makes the return journey. Unfortunately, due to the angle of the
hatch when opened and the shape of the moulding, the water drips straight inside the car.
This is where the water drips from. It can happen on either or both sides.
This is where the water collects. The fix is simple.
Take a drill and drill a small hole in the plastic moulding on each side. This is the lowest
point so making a hole here allows all the water to escape. You can see water was behind it.
Close the hatch and chances are, you'll get a stream of water come out for a few seconds.
The moulding will now continuously drain itself as it fills with water.
Hopefully the dripping into the boot when the hatch is open will now stop.
