It all seems to correspond with you changing the lights.

Right, being a very chivalrous kind of person I'd remove any trim on the inside of the boot, then shove someone in with a torch, tell them its like a game of hide & seek, that usually works for me.

Then squirt water all round all round the boot including the lights, it shouldn't take too long before you hear the cry. "Hey do you know there's water running down in here"

TBH I'd guess it to be one or both of the light seals, but that wouldn't stop me having some fun.

Best regards Adam.

If you can't get someone to climb inside the boot try drying the boot as best you can sprinkle some talcum powder around and after hosing or the next shower of rain any water finding its way in should leave a nice trail.
