Maybe they didn't close the boot properly before washing it !

Hi all. Had same problem, about 2 inches of water in spare wheel-well and no drain hole.Found the cause in my case and solved it. Water came in from the back of the boot.
I removed the plastic boot lip strip, 2 screws and pull it upwards. Remove removable boot floor.
One at a time, pull side boot trim out and up releasing where necessary and prop up. Head in boot and look rearward. Each side has 2 metal pieces which did not meet up creating a vertical gap. Seal up with silicone and re-assemble boot. Thought mine might be caused by a previous body repair, but seeing others with problem, maybe not! Hope this works for you.

I recently found my Ford B-max was also leaking water into the boot area. I found the carpet under the boot floor panel covering the spare wheel was soaked. The spare wheel was also sitting in about a centimeter of water. The water was clear so I assumed it was rain water (i.e. coming from above not up from the road). After drying it all out and leaving the carpet mat away, I found that the water was coming from behind the interior panel on the right side of the boot (when looking forward).

The car is going into the garage this week to see if they can find the root of the leak.


I'll ask them to take photos - is there any way to share the here?

I should have also noted that I had terrible condensation problems in the weeks before I discovered the soaked boot carpet (it probably like that for a while because it's hidden beneath the hard boot floor plate).

If anyone else is having condensation problems then check to see if your spare wheel is swimming like mine was...
