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.

Reservoir pressurized at idle,water disappearing through the bottom,blowing pipes and clamps failing to hold.

Perished pipes, very common around the ring clip. Check all your rubber pipes for cracking and leaks. They are perhaps the most accessible engine parts to replace, easy, cheap and fast. (most of them anyway) Find the leaky ones and replace. Remember to refill coolant with proper antifreeze mix. Topping off with just water will corrode the engine over time (and the the parts the hoses connect to).

Lots of water in the boot, mainly accumulated into the spare tyre holding space after rain. Carpet is mostly dry except the edge near the boot opening. The cover board edge nearby is also wet.

There are a couple of obvious reasons for this. If the water is getting in when the car is not moving tghen it is almost certainly the boot lid not beeing corectly positioned or that the rubber seal around the boot is damaged / not fitted corectly. Get a thin piece of card and shut it between boot lid and rubber, if it moves freely along there is a gap (you need to rtry this all the way around the boot). Start inbetween the hinges, the go to 1 side. Repeat for all sides. If it is loose look at bolts on hinges to see if they have moved from original position, you will see marks in the paint around the bolt heads if it has moved. Try loosening the bolts and moving the boot lid until the blots are in the original position. Do 1 at a time and do not remove bolts. If there is no sign of the boot lid being moved you need to inspect the rubber to make sure that it is seated correctly and that it has not perished or been cut anywhere. To stop wheel rusting lift out of whhel well and put some timber in the bottom to lift the wheel out of any water.
Hope this helps. If there is a gap, loosen bolts on one side wshere the hinge is fastened to car and push downon the top of the hinge, this should tighten that side, then repeat for the other hinge. Note if there arte 3 hinges start on one side and move accross in turn.

1991. What is causing the front calipers to lock up?

Take wheels off give callipers a good clean with brake cleaner especially rubber boots around piston. Check for any little holes rips Or tears if any found replace rubbers and remove pistons and clean. If no splits or holes I would then think about changing the fleecy hose on brakes as these can perish and cause the problem you having.
Hope this helps

I have 2004 lexus es330, i been feeling a click on my steering wheel when i turn left or right. i feel or hear a clicking noise( when the car is on motion). What could cause this problem? i have almost...

it sounds like the car is a front wheel drive??
then the noise will be the CV (CONSTANT VELOCITY) joints in the front end.
these drive the wheels from the transmission but are a big swivel joint that allows the axle to turn when you turn the wheels
these have ball bearings in them and are full of special grease
they are worn out when they make a very loud clicking noise (LOUDER WHEN YOU TURN A CORNER UNDER POWER)
if the rubber boots become perished and crack the grease comes out and the dirt and water (rain) gets in

Grinding noise when turning a bend

if the grinding happens when you turn the wheel while moving and not while turning the wheel when stationary chances are you have a bad cv axle. you can check it by locating the cv boot on the front axles. (a rubber piece that goes around the outside of the cv axle. move and expand the rubber boot and check for cracks in it generally they go bad when the boot is cracked or torn and dirt and sand gets in the teeth of the cv axle and wear it out.
