This has been for sometime now and it's getting increasingly frustrating I had a leak in the boot where it runs around the boot the rubber part.

It's also on the rear strut tops?? Where are the common problems at because I can't see anything on the net mk8 civic... Also noticed slight water coming in through the plug n pin holes that hold the exterior panel on are damp but that leaks down to the drain slots that exit checked the back lights slight damp the gasket so removed the whole tailgate lights cleaned the surface up

:( the seams with the roof just above the rubber boot/bung are known to leak, check both sides.

You see many threads on this, if you on using a browser and the Classic view then you'll see a list of related threads below ;)

Good luck getting it sorted and do keep us posted.

How do you get the boot interior off to see where its coming in from? I found a service manual online but cannot make heads or tails of the boot diagram.

Use levers and theres two Philips head screws either side then it leavers off really easy but if it's there boot window just buy a second hand one so much easier

Did you ever fix this mate? I'm going to rave the boot lid interior panel off mine this weekend to see where the leak on mine is. It looks similar to yours, water on the inside of the rubber boot seal...

Yeh bought a second hand tailgate for £50 that fixed it lol . Unless you feel confident ripping the perspex window off and resealing it with sikaflex 295uv with primer also for 12hr cure and buy new clips also from honda . Take all panels off and get a hose or constantly wetting the rear end to see the leak.

So where was yours leaking? There must be ab easier fix than removing the boot lid or perspex. I'll see what mine is like when I get the panels off

No worries lol the seal silicone bonded the rear window lower part you cant actually see it unless you take the boot tail gate plastic off and see where abouts it's split myne was on the top right corner which is hidden can't be accessed unless you remove the rear lower window which I've heard is a b#tch to do

Ok mate, thanks for the info, I'll see if there's some sort of workaround for it. Won't know for sure until I get all the plastics off 👍

I had a leak too. Replacement perspex window sorted it out. No more wet boot. Speaking to the window fitting company they told me they’ve done 0000’s under warranty when the 8th gen was first realeased due to leaking water.

Well I'm not paying £100s to fix it. I haven't had enough time to have a proper look yet as needed the car and it's not been the weather to sort. If its difficult to find, the boot will be getting a drain hole drilled in it at it's lowest part.
