United Kingdom 2007 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Zermatt Silver
Water collecting in tailgate

Anyone else had this issue? Both corners of the tailgate drip water when opened nearly all the time. It’s obviously been a problem forever as there is a lime trail on the plastic. Reckon I’d have a stalactite if I left it any longer. Rolling with laughter

Is something wrong/ blocked - any ideas? Range Rover Sport 3.0 SDV6 HSE Dynamic 2016 MY

I had this problem on my old RRS (MY15). I found the water was getting in behind the brightwork trim on the tailgate. Removed the trim and siliconed around the clips that hold the trim on. Problem solved (after remaining water drained from tailgate). Never happened again.

May be the same on yours.

Mine does this too. I assumed it was normal like when water drains out of doors and from the sunroof drains too....isn`t that why the holes are there (tailgate ones)? Steve.
