Re: Espace mk4 - leak from rear tailgate

hi and welcome

I'm not sure about the espace but its probably similar to the laguna.

There should be lots of little round clips holding the inner trim in place, they have a flat blade core, turn it 90' and pull the center out, it comes out partway, then pull the plug out.

If there are no plastic plugs then there will be torx screws instead.

There should be several 10mm washer type nuts holding the indicator on.
oh and try not to drop the nuts down the inside of the wing, its a pain to get them out.

The leak is probably getting in via the side or top seal of the light.
You will need to add more sealant to the top and check to see the bottom is free to drain out.
(you might have to cut a notch out of the bottom of the inside of the light to allow any water drain out)

hope that helps
