Ford Fiesta 2009 | Broken Weld


Ford Fiesta rainwater finding its way inside the car ending up in the boot as well as under the carpets in the cabin area.

This is a video showing you where the water leak was actually found and where the water was getting in to the car - it gets in through the seams around the boot. Possibly the welding is coming loose. It is fixed by sealing and won't need to be re-welded.

This seems to be a common cause of car water leaks on both Ford Focus and Fiesta.
