    Been having issues for ages with water in my boot lid and back footwell…. More or less everywhere checked and pulled apart, with he help of a few named storms i found it…

    The seals round the bolts for the spoiler, 3 in the middle and the 2 each end!

    Looks like ford use screwfix sealant with bits of old balloon to seal bolts and screws ☹️

    Sealed good and proper now, and most probably never be able to change the rear spoiler ever! ?

    I heard a rattle in my boot and stripped back loads and couldn’t find it. After another go, I found these same bolts loose and rattling. Glad I sorted it by the sounds of the trouble you had! I never got any water ingress though.

    It’s great to know because sometimes when I wash the car I have the back board of the box which is wet so I will be able to repair this leak.
    Thanks for the find.
