Exclamation Leak in boot

through the gap between the body of the car and the boot door.

Hello, I recently purchased a Fiat Punto in January,

and I took my car through the car ash a couple of times and have even cleaned it by hand, and noticed water leaks through the tiny gap at the top of the boot hatch,

there is a rubber seal however I think the water somehow misses the rubber seal and just leaks into the boot.

has anyone had a similar issue, and how can i rectify it, i was thinking to ake or put my own seal into it however that may interrupt the opening and closing of said boot door.

need help.

Re: Leak in boot

hi, those issues do not relate to me, and I read all of them before I posted my thread.

Have you looked at adjusting the boot by loosening the bolts and trying to get a better fit before tightening them back up ?

Has the car had damage which means the boot doesn’t now seal properly? Might be very difficult to fix if the car or boot is not the right shape
