Hi all
had the problem of water in the boot foot well, can anyone tell
me if the seal on the vent in the back under the rear light could
be the problem? See picture.
The spare wheel well was half full with water before I discovered it and
only found it then because the electrics went haywire, so I've now got
the long process of drying everything out.
If I push the rubber back in and silicone all round the vent do you think
that it will stop the water ingress?
Cheers!

A known xf issue and you've identified the root cause.

Hi Alan,
I had this same problem on my 2014 xfr sport all my electrics went haywire, luckily it was still under warranty as the whole cars wiring looms & fusebox had to be replaced full interior strip out all for the sake of a £30 seal which Jaguar no its a known problem. The problem trying to dry it out is all the connections in the rear fuse box in the boot start to corrode.

Think I may have been in time to save electrics, I've sprayed them with moisture repellent and lubricator
so hopefully will have no problem with corrosion.

Hi
The car is currently at my local Jaguar dealer having a new boot rubber fitted. I found that the water was getting in via the rubber at the bottom of the boot

Are you sure it's the boot rubber? The 2 side vents are the typical culprits for water in the boot.

+1 for this diagnosis. It’s a well know and documented issue.
