Hi everyone

I recently just noticed the hidden lower section of the boot carpet was wet
so i removed the carpet and there was water in the bottom.

i dried out the carpet placed it back in and this morning after a few days of rain its wet again, but only on the right side of the boot,i will include a picture below.

can anyone tell me where the water could of come in from so i can check the areas for holes or damaged seals






thanks

I also have the same problem and will try that out. The seal does look damp in areas although not sure how it would then get into the bottom boot. What type of sealent did you use?

Thanks

Same problem here. The last owner re-sealed it with WHITE silicone (black car) and today after washing we noticed leaking also. I'm going to re-reseal it with a nice thick layer of black silicone.

Just noticed mine leaks when I washed it the other day. Where the back window joins the black section for the 3rd brake light the trim has become loose and is letting water in....it's booked in to get sorted in a few weeks

The RHS of my rear plastic window feels looser than the LHS and I can see a gap where it letting rain into the tailgate. Stripped of all the interior trim tonight, but will have to wait for it to be dry to remove the light cluster and dry it out and try to see why it is loose. Pretty sure I have some black Sikasil somewhere - not spending any money on this so will just fill all the gaps.

Sorry, forgot to write back here. I got the seal replaced under warranty that sits between the window and the perspex. Mine has the exact fitment problem that you mentioned. I'm going to see how it fairs next time I wash it and see how it gets on

I have this exact problem also, water coming in through the seal when it rains and when i wash the little black beauty! Does anyone actually know how much the dealerships charge to fix this very common problem?

I have the exact same problem. Although Honda Customer Services just informed me that as they have had no product recalls and the fact it is not recognised by Honda UK they refuse to believe this is a 'common' manufacturing fault. I have been told by my local dealer I need to pay a one off fee to diagnose of £54 but if it is a glazing issue I will have to take it and pay * be the repair myself as they don't have glaziers on site and I will have to pay as its out of warranty. My argument, if it is the seal, they should pay, whether its in warranty or not. Looks like I am going back to Autoglass to reseal for £120. I'll sell and wont be buying a Honda again!

Honda do have this as a recognised problem and there is a Honda report about it.

I currently have the problem, and I'm into my last week of 'Honda Happiness'.

Currently Honda are refusing to fix it under warranty because they say that extended warranties do not cover water ingress to the vehicle!

Is that just b-s excuse to fob me off?

Haha, Honda just quoted £740 FOR THE REPAIR!
