Hello all,

I remember reading about this a while back and have just bought a 2009 Boxer with the same problem-when it rains water gets on top of the engine. Was there affix for this?

Regards

Hi Steve

Please don't start two identical threads as it always leads to confusion. I've deleted the other thread from the wrong forum.

There was a cover made for the engine if I remember correctly, but you would need to check with your Peugeot main dealer. I think it was a free upgrade, but there was so much confusion at the time I can't remember in detail.

There was a join in the middle of the scuttle of earlier Boxer 3 vans, and if that's your problem it's not too difficult to make a much better job of sealing that joint. I cleaned ours off as well as I could and used black Sikaflex with strips of mesh to lay over and under the join. With care and a wet soapy finger it was not too difficult to smooth the top surface so it looked OK.

Hope this helps.

First I would make sure the drain hole is clear and the scuttle so that it isn't water coming over the top of the seal. From the drain hole, there should be a pipe taking any water away.

Mine has an extra drain hole made from a 'glue tube' top attached to a hose. I think this mod was common for the time and am surprised yours hasn't been done. There are lots of threads on this issue - just type scuttle in the search box.

Hi Steve
When our van is parked or pitched up, I use the long version Taylormade screens to cover the bonnet vents,no good if your driving of course.

No worries Steve.

It seems to be happening quite a lot recently. Not sure why??
