Regarding the water in the trunk (boot), I have this
I used liquid Turtle wax to soak the external and
cracked window gasket. I used a towel to absorb
the water from the trunk. I then parked it and covered
it with a car cover (not necessarily water-proof) and
left it sit for the week.
It has rained hard here for about 4 days of the past
week. No water had leaked in. There's a small amount
from previously (?) - a few spoons full--none standing.
I need to somehow get that water sucked out and the
area dry. Any suggestions? (I'll mention it Monday
to the mechanic - who farms out body work). Voila! I
think I've located the leak: gasket around the back
window. It needs replacing - I will take it to the shop
for that on Monday, while the front seal is also replaced.
He has to keep it for a couple of days. I hope then to
have the car back in three days without the oil leak and
without the water leak. The costs are reasonable but
the gasket replacement costs more than the front seal.
I'm not complaining, just noting that. Eventually I need
to have the windshield and sun-roof gaskets replaced.
But for now the rear window gasket(seal) will do.
