Hello to all, I am a new visitor. I have recently purchased a S70 T5. I love the car and can't stop thinking about it. It is stock and will probably remain that way until the warranty that I received expires. <P>I have discovered water in the spare tire well within the trunk. I thought that it was just condensation, but I realizd that it is coming in from underneathh because nothing else is getting wet. <P>If it continues to do this I guess the warranty would cover it, but I don't want to take it in if I don't have to.<BR> <BR>Oh, one more question. Did any of you make modifications to your car despite the warranty?<P>See Ya!<BR>

Interesting. How is the seal for the trunk lid? How is the rear window seal? are they cut anywhere?<P>This is a long shot, did you run a carfax history report or track down where the car came from prior to you purchasing it? It may be a flood car. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>The 'mod. under warranty' debate all comes down to how much you will worry. If you will worry the entire time you drive the car then no, don't do it. <P>I believe the Dealer will have to prove that the mod caused or significantly contributed to the warranty claim.<P><P>

If your car is an estate (wagon) then you're suffering from a very common fault on 70s; detatched rear wash pipes.<P>Check the pipes running to the rear washwipe, especially the T-junctions.<P>If they're good and you check that it's not leaking, then the wet is probably due to a past and now repaired leak.<P>Keep an eye on it in future and if the wash stops working, you know where to go.

I'm a dimwit - I just noticed you have a S70.<P>Since the 70 series doesn't have the drain pipes the 850 has at the front corners of the well of the bootlid, I have no suggestion apart from drying it out and seeing if it recurs.
