Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

After heavy rain when i open the boot lid, water pours out of the right or left hand rubber grommet, as if water is getting in the skin of the boor lid? Has anyone heard/experienced/know about this fault? Email me please if you can help. Cheers!

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

Many thanks T14086! I'll take it back to the dealer. Have you any more info on this problem so i can at least go armed with some information, plus it would be nice to know a bit more about how the water gets in etc?
Cheers!

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

I opened my GP's boot the other day and a load of water piddled onto the parcel shelf. I'm wondering if I've got the same or similar fault........

Is it an easy fix?

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

Hi
had exactly the same problem, Water on the parcel shelf.
Its coming in through the window washer housing.
This is for sure a dealer/waranty problem, but for 10 mins just push the nozzle out and put a bit of silicone sealant under before replacing.

Dealer should be well aware of potential water leak areas.

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

Thanks for the replies. Think your right bobanreg, just taken a look and the Third Brake Light/Rear Washer and it seems a logical place where the water is getting in as it's not sealed. As ive gotta go back to the dealer anyhow's, i'll get them to fix it for me.

I'll feed back the results as it may benefit anyone else who's having the same prob. Cheers all!

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

i dont think it is a legal requirement in the uk to have a rear windscreen wiper, i know when mine was broken on my old punto it did not fail the mot for it.

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

Hi All, I have had this problem the water was getting in through the wiper grommet, it also stuffed the switch for the interior boot light. The water appeared on the parcel shelf and in the catch area as well as in the seal at the bottom of the boot. All sorted now.
Common fault?

Look on the back of the car - a wiper is there or it ain't!
To operate it push the right hand wiper leaver away from you and hold it there.....water will squirt from the top of the rear window and the wiper will wipe.
To turn it on manually twist the inner collar on the wiper stalk.

Re: Water in boot lid? Grande Punto Active Sport

In response to Fiat House you say that it's all sorted now, can you tell us how you got it sorted please. Also you say that water was getting in through the wiper grommet, which is different to what bobanreg said which was that it was comming in through the third brake light/washer. Maybe there's more than one problem here?? Let's hope not!

Anyway's, i got on to my dealer and told them the problem im having (see original post) and im booking it in to have the Fiat Service Specialist have a look at it.

As Fiat House said, common fault for GP?
