The boot is out of place because of the theft break in. Is there any car repairman who can fix this?

You can either find a thrust worthy panel beater, or if you're willing to DIY, strip the side carpets/plastic panels in the boot, lie down in it with a light with the boot closed, then have someone water the boot and areas around it.

With luck, you should be able to see where the water is seeping thru.

is there any dent whatsoever, if no you can just send to accesories shop like brothers or so to do the rubber change...additionally you might want to check if the key lock is broken which causing the leak...best of luck

Dont think you need any rubber seal change if it wasn't torn or completely flat. All you have to do is trace which location water goes in. normally thru the gap between the metal sheets seam or the gap between body and rear light clusters. over the years, the seal at the light cluster may have gone bad and water can get thru.

Remedy? just get a pack of Blu-tack/Tack-it from stationary shop and cover the leaky area. just make sure to clean the area before applying the Blu-tack. Cost is normally below rm10. Good luck.
