boot ( trunk ) full of h2o
Hi there one and all,
My first question of this august mob - I just inherited a w123 280e ( 1977 ) from an aged aunt who has had the thing from new.
It seems fine despite not having been used for a few years - new tyres and a new exhaust and it seems to be getting better as it gets used.
However - it is a particlarly rainy time here in the land that time forgot, and the boot ( trunk ) is getting rain into it. It seems to be mainly at the sides of the area - either side of the spare wheel well. And it seems to slosh out as soon as the car moves from the driveway.
Is this a usual thing ? Are there drain holes in these recesses that may need clearing out?
