    Just bought a used copen and have a small amount of water leaking into the boot. I think that it is coming in through the rear light fitting, any ideas how to stop it.
    Many thanks

    Firstly I would suggest making sure that the water is not getting in there when you open the boot - as that can happen. If that's not the case then you may find the service manual on this site may be able to assist in taking off the brake light (which I'm assuming is the light you mean) and then you could re-install it with some silicon gel/sealant or likewise to stop the leak.

    Here's the relevant page from the service manual: J1-17

    Had the same problem. Found that the dealer had no real solution (apparently they don't read service manuals) but decided to order a new break light as they were afraid they would break the original one which was hard to remove. Eventually they removed it, and sealed it with sealant. As a side effect, two weeks days later I am a proud owner of a 2nd, new, unused, and never installed Copen break light. But no water ever came again in the boot, which is good.
