Renault Scenic 1.6 RXE 2000

Hi all.

I seem to have a few corroded(how do you spell that word? ) areas on my Scenics tailgate. They are quite symmetrical, namely being on each side of the plastic bit holding for instance the numberplate and the tailgate window opener. Now, this is supposed to be a galvanized car, so I take it its collecting water in this area?

If so, would it be a good idea to take the tailgate apart and check the drainage piping? Is there something I can do about the corrosion, other than a full fix with respray of the tailgate. The car wasn't that expensive, so I don't think I can justify that direction.

Now, for the other(slightly related I think) issues:
The tailgate window will not open, and the rear wiper does not move). Can this be down to the same issue? I havent opened her up yet, so for now I'm just assessing the tailgate issues. (and yes, there are plenty)

Any adwise would be appreciated.
