Well done and on the hazard lights really hoping it will be fixed with your MINI drying out.

So bad news im afraid!!

Problem solved for a couple of weeks - fitted new boot seal to sort one leak out, re-tested and leaking through N/S rear light - sealed both rear lights to sort that leak out.

No leaks from car wash or torrential rain over a period of 4 days - car driven 3 miles in the wet and the left side of boot was soaking - water in boot was dirty - was clean water before - so it must be getting in somewhere near the arch, possibly?

I have done the fog test again and there is a very slow and steady stream of fog coming through a factory hole just in front of the rear arch - as though its coming through the sill - both sides - I am not convinced it is enough to let that amount of water in though.

The rear window washer has stopped working completely as well - no water, no motor etc. I have read that on the 1st generation there is one pump that sends water to both front and rear windows and is controlled by two relays, switching polarity to either pump water to front or rear - is this still the case with the 2nd generation? If so does anyone know where they are located?

The front wiper runs on intermittent and one speed consistently - there are 2 relays in the engine fuse box for the front washers - I have tested both these relays and they are fine - part number: 6136-1 472 984 - I have checked all the fuses that are for the washers and they are all fine.

The car is currently dry!!

Any advice on the relay location would be greatly appreciated

So I have sort of got some where with hazards.. When I use the front drivers side window button and the window closes it turns the hazards on, drop the window down a bit and take it back up the hazards go off.. I have repeated this numerous times and get the same result every time.. So not sure what is going on.

Any body else had same sort of problem?

Thanks

I share your pain, possible culprits on the leak after doing some research....

- Third brake light.
- Rear wiper.
- Boot handle.
- Drain plug in the footwell.

The dirty water could be from the dirt gathering on your rear hatch.

Will get back to you on the hazards and wipers.

On the hazards, I can only think of a fault with your footwell control module due to the water issues. Either dry out the unit or replace which is priced from £50 on eBay. More on the electrical faults here:

Yes I think it is the Footwell Control Module - the lower spot lights are now on permanently - even with the lights turned off and ignition off!!

I will have a look on eBay - I am under the impression the module will need programming to the car, is this correct and a dealer only job?

Thanks zf44
