X5 E70 tailgate lock water leak

Sat Feb 09, 2019 12:56 pm

Hi all

As it says really when I open the tailgate I get rainwater drip out of the bottom of the lock, onto my head. Had a quick google didn't really find an answer. Has anyone experienced this before?

The rear light seals on the tailgate are well known for letting in water so id check these and you can buy new seals . If you pull out the little plastic bulb covers on the back behind each boot taillight you will see if waters been getting in or not.
