  3. Water entering boot door through stop light

    Folks,

    Rain water is entering inside of the boot door causing rust near the boot door latch,apparently there is 2.5 mm gap between stoplight plastic and body of the door.

    I had already got the boot door painted once internally,Please check whether you have gap i mentioned in your cars?

    Huge smoke from the exaust pipe??!!

    :confused:,Last week when I saw the Linea leaving,I was shocked to see the amount of smoke emitted from the exaust pipe,it was as much as you see from a Lorry running on diesel+kerosine mixture,I've never seen this kind in my car earlier.My car has done 48,000kms,an MJD,due for service at 50,000 kms.
    Am worried,more so because we have to diagnose the problem and tell the TASS guys.
    Guys,any idea????

    Harness is being replaced in my car. I doubt the problem is with the harness/connectors.

    All diesel cars do that sometimes. From Indica to Audi Q7, i've seen all emits gobs of black smoke when the driver puts the pedal to the metal or when the engine is lugged.

    It's a diesel , dude!

    Don't give it a second thought. Enjoy the drive.
  8. I will post the actual picture but for now here is one sample,water is entering the hallow space in the rear boot door.
    I mean exactly there 2 mm gap between center stop light plastic(red in color) and the metal(blue)

    Some months back, I noticed a pool of water under the spare wheel, and I was not able to locate the cause. That was during last years monsoon and I thought it was due to water splashing from the wheels while driving through water-logged areas. I had done a 400kms long trip a few days before that. I even suspected that this would have been caused during the wash at TASS. This was a one time thing and didnt happen again.

    Now I supect thiscould be the cause.

  10. What a coincidence, I had around 7 lts of water in the same boot ,it was the heavy rain in Gokarna that contributed to it.
