Water leaking inside the boot of my 2016 Altis

I would tend to believe that the rubber gasket that runs around the trunk compartment is torn or out of place allowing water to leak into the trunk. Check the rubber all the way around to see if its complete without any rips, or sagging. If its sagging you can buy weather stripping adhesive and glue it back into place. I would also check the under neath of the car to see if you might have any rust or possibly run over something and poked a hole into the bottom of the spare tire well. Its been know to happen.

Seal came apart on side marker light assembly

Should be able to use clear silicone sealer for the light, you may need to take the bulb out first to vent the air inside for a good seal.
People use yellow weatherstrip adhesive for door gaskets, but the snaps help keep it in place - so the adhesive may not last long.
You might check with an auto parts store or someone who supplies body shops for a replacement strip. Most of that kind of thing is made by aftermarket suppliers.

I broke my rubber door seal loose on the passenger side in the icey weather today. what/how is the cheapest way to repair it? i am not using the remote, because that quit working a month ago after it ran...

Go to you local autoparts retailer you will need little tree clips that go into holes in the rubber seal and in turn push into holes in the door and you will need a tube of weather sealant glue.... Clean the rubber seal on the door and pull out the old tree clips ( tilt them on about a 45 degree angle to get them out don't tear the rubber) next put in the new tree clips you have bought following the same instructions on how you removed the old ones. Finally put sealant glue on the rubber where it contacts the door ( all the way around) and also on the door frame itself where the rubber will contact allow the glue to get tacky on door and rubber (Approx 10 mins) start at one end pushing the rubber back onto the door and inserting the tree clips as you go along when you get to the end viola your done! hope this helps

Interior lights will not go off

I own a Jeep myself and the lights inside are on a timer... check your doors too.. you should see where the door closes against the pin to tell the light to go off on the timer... every door is suppose to have a square rubber piece where it hits the button... even when you're sure that you closed your doors correctly, the lights will remain on and at time the factory alarm won't arm either... check every door for it.. if you find that it's missing, then you need to make a square rubber piece and light glue it back to the door and wait a few minutes for the glue to set. Good luck

Had a cd player installed in 01 tribute and the guy who did it ripped the vinyl on the upper dash. Need to know what can be done to fix it . Can it be redone or just have to be replaced?

there is a vinyl glue on the market for fixing this kind of plastic you may find it in a swiming/camping shop,,,yes thats right,,, they use it to fix things like punchers in beach balls and swim rings, air beds all sorts of things like that,, it will glue this tear up tape the tear together and apply the glue in spots till you stich up the tear then when dry and set rub it down lightly with steel wool till the gloss has gone from the glue,,,cheap fix realy,,,

I have a 97 saab 900s 3 door which water leaks into the trunk on passenger side, just right of the spare wheel well. i found that water leaks in even when the car isnt being driven.

Check for any rips or tears in the rubber seal around the lift gate, also make sure the rubber seal has not came loose from the lift gate. Then check the mating area for any damage.

Jeep Cherokee door lock repair.

I have been working on cars for many years and, the first thing i do when getting a new car (new to me) is to go to the auto parts store and get a Haynes repair manual for it....they take the car completly apart and put it back together and give detailed instructions on how to do it yourself..

aside from that, you can take out all the screws you can find holding the panel on then the panel should be held on but a series of push-lock type pins....insert a large flat screwdriver between the panel and door and try to figure out exacty where those pins are. DONOT pry too hard as the panel is like a cardboard composite that can rip...when you find where a pin is, try to get as close to it as possible to aviod ripping the panel. Of course once you get the first pin dislocated it is easier to locate the others...
IMPORTANT...when you get the panel off, there should be a piece of plastic over the door held in place with a tar like glue....remove this carefully as this keeps air and moisture from getting in your car.
Your door locks should be accessable then.

Again I suggest getting the Haynes manual they are about $15 and will save you alot in the long run

good a follow up comment if you run into any snags
