Default 107 Swimming Pool In Spare Wheel Compartment

If it was a Limousine with a flurry of half naked women in it, I wouldn't mind.

However, it's not. It's a swimming pool in my 107!

The spare wheel well has quite a lot of water in it, not particularly clean looking either. I can't seem to spy (or feel) any damp around the rear light fixings and the rear windscreen wash seems to avoid any openings, and again I can't see any particular points at which it might creep in.

I'm completely, and utterly, flummoxed.

Does anyone have any experience of this issue, and perhaps any advice?

EDIT: I figured as I'd posted this, I may as well go and get the water out of the well. Thankfully, there was a helpful little rubber 'plug' that looked like it was designed for exactly this issue - so out it came and the water drained away, but not before almost an entire roll of toilet paper had dedicated it's life to underwater exploration.

So, it's nice and dry (well, as dry as I can get it using a mixture of toilet paper and kitchen towel) in there now - though I am noticing there's a dampness to the left side of the boot but not the right. A quick look at the rear lights shows a small amount of condensation inside the left rear light but none on the right...

Does this mean it's something to do with my rear light on the left hand side? I also noticed the water was really quite black and a little bit soapy...washer fluid?

Awesome! Looks like a busy Saturday for me!

When you say that the bitumen type sealants are a pain to use, how do you mean? I'd rather go with something easy but worried that the silicon treatment might get some water trapped in places I don't want!

I mean sticky, messy, and prone to getting everywhere except where you want it.
