upon closer inspection I have found by boot lid to be totally rotten under the seal that keeps the rear window in place.... :shock:

Is is worth trying to repair or should I look into getting a new boot (if so, what should that cost.....)

Cheers.

New boot time. Think there 200ish from renault. Plenty of boots about 2nd hand though.

Just make sure you get the right phase bootlid as the badges are pinned on on phase 2's and have a washer jet built into wiper where as phase1's don't have locating holes for badges and a hole for a seperate washer jet.
