    Default 451 Fortwo 2008 2009 rear hatch water leak when opened after rain

    Doh, it's taken me 8 years to do a two minute fix! I hope this post helps someone.
    As in the title, water cannot drain away properly and tips out everywhere when the rear hatch is opened after rain.
    The factory sorted the problem thereafter by drilling the same two holes in the plastic window surround.
    Unfortunately, they didn't tell existing owners.
    I drilled two very small guide holes, then finished with a 6mm drill.
    Drill parallel to the glass window so you don't crash the drill bit through the plastic into the glass.

    Tinypic rotated my image, so imagine the image rotated back 90 degrees ccw
