In my 2001 Scenic I have had condensation like that once before, and again now.

First time, there was quite a bit of water in the spare wheel well; it took quite a bit of time, and a taller man than I, to spot that the grommet around the rear wiring harness above the back door hinge was not tightly seated. That seemed to cure the problem.

After that, I sprinkled talc on the metal all around the well and surrounds and, even after several months, that is still showing me that no water has got that far.

However, I now have the condensation again, and I have found that the foam backing of the carpet at the left rear of the car is damp. I am going to try putting sealant around the harness in case that is again the problem area, but I will be interested to hear of anybody else's experience of this.

BTW, I was only able to post here using 'Quick Reply', not the other button.
