Hi guys, I have a leak somewhere at the very back of the load area. I am
assuming it is from the rear sliding window but cant see anything running
in. My aux tank is in that corner so I cant get in to see what is going on
but feeling down the side of the tank the carpet is sodden. Any ideas
gratefully received!

Could it be the aux tank? I know it sounds silly but could a fitting be loose?

Hi Clair
Had the same problem on both sides of rear windows.
Easy fix is to run a plastic bag from just inside panel cover down to the
base of the rear side pockets hugging the inside of the outer panel.
Geese hope that sounds right to you.
Also the rear window rubber can leak.
When you say the carpet is wet , do you mean the boot carpet underneath or
on top of the pile.
cheers

Hi brian and john, I think it is water not diesel. I say think because I
managed to overfill the aux tank one day and so there is some diesel smell
in there too, but most of it is water I think.
I can only just get my hand down the side of the tank to touch the carpet -
the aux tank is boxed in as well which makes it even less accessible - but
it feels pretty wet on top. I have poked a mop head down there to soak as
much as I can up and have pushed a couple of kitchen rolls down there to see
what happens so that may tell me more.....
