Leak in Tailgate Common Issue for Espace IV ?

There is water dripping into the boot via the tailgate. A local garage removed the brake light and resealed it but still leaking. They tried to simulate the rain using a hosepipe but no issue then. Is this a common issue with Espaces or other Renaults and what is usually best way to fix it ?

Re: Leak in Tailgate Common Issue for Espace IV ?

check the body seams where they meet the roof, the boot rubber seal, around the hinges. I had similar with my laguna. turned out to be the seam between the rear panel and roof by the rear door. the seam had come apart slightly and the sealant used in manufacture had perished causing a slight crack which in heavy rain let water in to run along the seam on inside then drip in.
