  1. Hi all just found this newsgroup. My problem is I get water in spare wheel
    well on my 406 2.1TD. caused I believe be condensation, a problem "common"
    to the 406. "Cured" by drilling small hole in well.Has anyone else
    experienced this.Also the water I believe has found its way into the rear
    passenger foot well under braking??? any comments.

    Few small holes should solve water collecting problem in tyre well. The
    rear passenger footwell water would be more attributable to a blocked
    channel with regard to your sunroof (if you have one). If you haven't got
    a sunroof then would suggest checking for 'crud' collected in door rubber
    surrounds, forcing water to collect and spill into rear footwell. Don't
    think braking would have much to do with this ;)

    I had this problem with a Saab and it was simply water leaking in
    through a faulty seal around the boot - easily fixed.

    Sprinkle some Talcum powder around the boot area, especially round the rear
    lights ,,
    spray with water ,, then check for a water track in the Talc dust,

    Be careful - years ago I pop-riveted a rack to the bottom of the boot
    in my first Peugeot - a 504 - to hold my toolbox - wondered why the
    boot always smelt of petrol............
