I have a 2008 Mini Cooper S Clubman.
After a heavy rain the spare tire compartment had a small puddle of water. How can I find and eliminate the source? JR

Chalk transfer is what I use in this case. Coat every rubber weather stripping with white chalk. The chalk will not transfer where the weather stripping doesn’t touch the frame and this is where you will find your leak. To maintain the weather stripping, use a rag saturated with aerosol silicone lube.
