The rear window solenoid is a slave to the one that operates the boot lid - so if one is duff it can sometimes affect the other. As you say there has been obvious signs of water ingress (algae, moss, etc) it could be there is corrosion at some of the electrical connections. If you are certain all the elecrocs inside the boot lid are OK it may be worth having a look at the loom connection which is usually located behind the upholstery on the left rear inner wing. You could also try making a temporary earth to the boot door to see if it helps
