Just washed my V50 today, which is a beautiful day in Cheshire UK <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I noticed that there was a small pool of water inside my car on the boot cover pull thing .... as if the water had come through the rear washer jet, I had a look around and managed to snap a couple of plastic fittings around the rear screen .... hope I don't get a rattle now.<p>Anyone else notice some water ingress when using a normal hose?<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Just been out and checked all seals .. and give them a wipe, they seem okay <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Re: V50 ... Leak in the Rear ? (denzo)

I own a 2005 V50. Last summer I found about 2 inches of water in the spare tire "well" of my car. I brought it to Volvo. They told me they had to replace the rubber seal round the rear hatch. I haven't seen any water since.

Re: V50 ... Leak in the Rear ? (v50t5black)

Did this water leak through your rear trunk and soak through your carpet?<p>I'll go and check my spare wheel, but I think it is totally dry because there is no smell<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: V50 ... Leak in the Rear ? (denzo)

The rug was not that wet and there wasn't any smell that I noticed. I noticed the rug was wet after finding the water in the spare tire well. When I tried to track down where the leak was I found the rug wettest under the rear seats???? At that point I was at a loss so I brought it to the dealer.

Denzo<p>Mine had this aftre havingthe leaky washer jet investigated, whislt the delaer waited for the new part the old one wasn't refitted correctly, the nozzle was loose and able to be turned by hand from the outside. Water gets in through the seal and drips off the "seam" between the plastic boot lid trims onto the load cover. Try pushing the nozzle onto the car, IIRC the part is a ratchet snap fit affair so should tighten up when pushed.<p>Rich

Hi Denzo,<br>Had the same problem as you described. Mine was a leak at the rear windscreen. Try spraying water into the top windscreen groove and see if it leaks. Mine did and was rectified by the agent. Hope this helps.<br>

Re: (SQV50)

Hi, Thanks SQV50<p>I only get the leak when washing my car with hose pipe - I have tightened up the rear washer jet. <p>I don't get leaking under heavy rain .... I'm hoping that the washer jet has cured it ... Dread to think about the rear screen being resealed or replaced<p>
