Unhappy civic 06 - water in boot

hiya just wanted to say about my problems with the civic. 1 year ago I had water in the bottom of boot. took car in for 1 week and said it was fixed. GREAT. 1 week later the water was back. garage replaced seals 2nd time lucky. NO third time in garage and they replaced back windscreen. have no more water in boot but back window full of condensation. after i park the car after work i have to go out 2 hours later and dry inside back window. when it is really cold and icy i have to get up in the morning and defrost inside of back window. just got car returned this morn from garage after having it for 1 week said 99% sure it is fixed. AFTER 7 TIMES AND OVER 1 YEAR. also have had crunching noise from wheels. recall for front windscreen, recall in april 2008 for faulty handbrake, petrol cap replaced. has anyone else had problems with water and any idea what i could do next if it is not fixed. ta much.

Your dealer may have fixed whatever water ingress there was but obviously not dried out the car. I'd be inclined to go back to the dealership and get them to fix evrything that you are not happy with. Write a list out and if you feel you are getting no-where, send a letter into the service manager, the DP and if you feel it worthy, to Honda UK, making sure that all parties know who else has a copy.

Don't know if anyone else has had a problem which I have just discovered.

Last week I noticed water dripping from the bottom of the offside rear passenger door. I don't know where the water is coming from, and think it maybe actually coming from the door itself.

Can anyone shed any light on what this could be?

Have a look at this thread, do a search for :- Drainage hole in doors, and all will be revealed.

Thank you very much guys!!!! I would never have even known about the drainage bungs without you lot!!!

I had a check of them in the door where the water was coming from and the bungs were blocked full of mud.

Am I right in thinking most people have now removed these bungs?

Yes. It is an offical Honda fix, but you can easily do it yourself.
