    Default Dripping Spoiler?

    No matter the weather conditions, whenever I lift the boot the tips of the spoiler start dripping water.
    Since there are obviously no water sources around that area I'm just wondering if anyone has had anything similar before I take the spoiler off and fill the whole thing with silicone? :P

    Must have a dodgy spoiler, mine hasn't done that in 8 yrs. Remove it and look to seal the pillars to the upper wing.

    V8, not for everyone but 10/10 for your effort.

    Well, the sealant seems to have done the job, but I still cant work out how the water got in in the first place :P

    Where the uprights join the wing.
    When I took it off the car i dismantled it, it's only 4 bolts. Applied some bog standard translucent bathroom sealent, reassembled it and reinstalled it
