Hi,

Thought I'd share some potential solutions to the endemic leaking problems with the 107 (56 plate) - of which we've had many... although leaks are unique so it might not sort your leak of course. First, standing water in the offside rear passenger footwell... the problem on ours was a poorly fitting door seal, the water gets in on the forward upper edge of the seal, runs down behind the seal and then into the footwell... you can remove the plastic trim at the bottom and get someone to pour a watering can of water over the closed door and see it trickling down there. I removed the door seal completely and then 'pinched' the part that goes over the metal rim on the car to close the gap all round. I then put it back but moved it round by 5mm so that it went back in a slightly different place. I also removed the two rubber 'bungs' in the floor pan and silicon sealed them in for good measure. It now hasn't leaked for a while... if it did, I'd be tempted to run a bead of silicon sealant round the metal lip that the seal sits on first.

The boot leak took some finding, but it turns out its the seal of the rear light cluster onto the body work. What a poor piece of engineering if ever there was one! There is a square piece of foam/rubber on the light cluster that goes round the cable going to the lights. This is all that seals a rather large square hole in the body work behind the light cluster (which itself is only held on with two 'poppers' and two bolts). If you have a leaky boot (usually on one side), remove the side 'carpet' trim - three pull out poppers, one screw and one popper that you need to depress the middle bit first to release - and get some one to pour water over the top of the rear light cluster... a constant stream appears to come down into the rear corner of the boot. I didn't muck about with this one... remove the light cluster, clean up all the muck round the square hole in the body, hair dryer dry the foam/rubber 'seal' on the light... then a ring of silicone sealant round the square hole on the body... refit light. No problems (so far) with leaks.

For the money, the 107 is ok... ours gets a hard life ferrying kids around town. But the carpets are ruined, mould grows in many inaccesbile places, and it pongs... all due to many persistent leaks which I hope are now sorted.

Hope that helps.
