After removing the nearside plastic trim in the boot I discovered the drain pipe in corner appeared to be have been squashed by the trim. I put it all back carefully, so I thought, but it still leaked afterwards.

My rear sunroof has been taped up with black electrical tape for about 9 years now. I renew the tape every 12 months or so. At least the boot has remained dry for those 9 years. One day I may remove the trim again and try to protect the pipe from squashing better. My next car won't have a sunroof!!
Margaret, you made me laugh....but I really hope I
don't have duct tape too for 9 years. We have a 7 and a 10 year old that think apart from backing books etc I am obsessed with wrapping and sticking things.My duct tape work hasn't been as effective as yours though, the rain pours in from near the roof down the sides.
Ah well....hopefully tomorrow will sort it.
