No worries. I've done quite a bit more research since posting this, and found there are a plethora of potential areas of water ingress in this car, its a pain.

Boot tyre well, roof rail sealant, seals under bolts, gromits etc.

Today I think I found another - the wiring for the factory fitted rear parking sensors - for some reason they neglected to fit a gromit behind the wire loom, so it looks like water comes in there as well - located on boot up stand behind plastic trim that meets the boot lid.

Hey,

Where is your suspected water source?

I have a leak in my boot also but it looks like my rear tail light on the passenger side is a little loose :(

I think I need to take the bumper off to have a better look.

Bottom left corner of the boot, below the passenger rear light area.

My 2 Jazz's (2006 and 2007 GD series) both are suffering the exact same problem as Richard's. My easy (as well as lazy) solution was to drill a hole the size of approx 10mm at the lowest point on the boot floor so any water coming through will just drain straight out. I did apply plenty of sealant around the drilled hole area to prevent corrosion.

That's an interesting way James,  has it worked out well?

I went to all the hassle of buying a special sealant etc

one year later and two jazz done like this, not a drop of water!, but like I said it takes time to get it right, hose pipe and spray all over the roof and back of car including sides and then dive straight in to the boot area and watch it drip, apply the blue tack where it was dripping, dry off with a towel and start again, you'll find the leak straight to appear where you last put the blue tack this is why it takes about 45 mins to do it, you might have to go almost half way across, once it stops leaking, leave it for 24 hours and next day spray all over the back and see if it leaks, if your successful it shouldn't, a year later hopefully like we found out, no leaks at all! :D the best thing me and grandad found funny was on the back of blue tack pack it said "use me to fix leaks" and it did what it said! haha

Hi Noodle,

The culprit is the roof seam sealant.  seems like Honda has been tricked when they procure the seam sealant material for the purpose . The flexibility seems to be not as what they have expected.  PM your email I'll send photos n the stuff you need ...  :-X
Hi could you tell me what u used to fix the leak prob on ur jazz. I have rusty rear seat hinges.thanks

There's a product called Silkaflex,  but there are alternatives,  see here -  http://www.eurocarparts.com/mobile/sealant

Did the same in my wifes former GD when I noticed windows misting up inside when it was parked - turned out to be half inch of water in wheel well - 5 minutes with the trusty DeWalt and a 6mm drill - never had a problem after that.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot
