13..5 - Leaky Boots and Damp Carpets ( )


Places to check for that annoying boot leak:

Plastic trim mounting holes: squirt some silicone around the holes.

Fuel filler gasket: Damage to the rubber, and/ or a clogged or deteriorated drain tube, can often be hidden under the crap which tends to collect in there. (This can also resulted in occasional fuel odor in the boot.)

Antenna grommet.

All are pretty easy to diagnose with a little water on a dry day.

A not impossible situation, if a leaky boot is not noticed is some mould on the carpet. Give it a clean and hang it in the sun. The UV light kills off the mould and the fresh air should remove the smell.
