    Hi Gamichea. Mine is earlier than yours. Not sure of build date but it was registered in April 2015. Any info you can find would be very much appreciated.

    The tailgate water ingress is back! I pulled the 2 rubber bungs out of the top edge of the tailgate frame and water streamed out with the gate open. I also found 2 tiny plastic bungs in the lower edge which were covered in paint. These tiny bungs are lose fitting when unstuck from the paint so should help to drain. Iím still none the wiser as to where water is coming in. Any ideas or fixes found?? Thanks.

    Check that the rear wiper screen wash connection or jet tube are not leaking.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Wow, amazing isn't it that people are on here complaining about a bit of water in the car; they probably didn't own an "iconic" BL car from the seventies or eighties.I still have a copy of a letter writen by the owner of a Dolomite Sprint, which had a somewhat "experimental" design of engine top end and you should see the catalogue of serious complaints.

    Unfortunately Ben the water in the tailgate causes havoc with the electrics, even setting off the alarm at all hours.

    Yes, seconded.

    I recall in the 1970's going on a holiday to Wales in my Ford Anglia (inward slopping rear window) when the windscreen seal failed. We (girlfriend then, wife now) had to wear plastic bags on our shoes...those were the days.
