Dead easy.

Open the boot lid and undo one of the silver bolts that hold the spoiler on (preferably one of the lower ones as you look at the open boot lid). The water will drain out.

Two second job to do, but one of those funny little quirks of Zed ownership that you have to see to every couple of weeks :)

yes buddy, I think it gets in where you say. Apart from taking the spoiler apart and sealing it there is not alot you can do.

It never used to bother me that much apart from when the spoiler used to get full and cause the boot to fall down on my head :lol:

The plan was to lift the boot lid, remove one of the lower bolts permanately so there was a constant drain for the water. The bolts sit in the drain channel from the rear windscreen so this looked like a solution but after a short while I started finding water in the boot. Replaced the bolt and the leaking boot stopped.

Easiest option is to do what Jerry suggested. It only takes a few minutes.
