Driving me mad - I am thinking it is water getting behind the boot lid
seal. The seal presses over the rim of the boot lid opening.
I am thinking of pulling off the seal and putting a bead of silicone into
the gripping U section of the seal and pressing it back on.
Such things can be bastards to find. It might be a leak path from
somewhere completely different. In the old days garages sometimes put an
ultrasonic source inside the car and wandered around the outside with a
detector. Interesting to see there are relatively cheap ones around now.

I recall seeing this many years ago when I was a car saleman at a VW
I think I know where it is now - it is water passing into a channel in the
seal section - and running round and then into the car.
One thing worth remembering is that not all parts of a car are meant to
be watertight. I had a 'leak' on an Audi A3 that was actually an
intended drain, but the rubber drain grommet was blocked- the rear
quarter had several inches of water in it that overflowed into the spare
wheel well- removing the grommet and cleaning it stopped it.
