Hi all, I have just bought a 2004 freelander hse and there is something in the storage space in the boot, it is fasten to the lid of the storage space, can anybody tell me what it is and how to control the condensation and dampness it is causing, many thanks, Peter.

Is it by any chance the black toolbox with the jack & wheel brace in it? :ph34r: If you don't have an owner's manual you can download the factory RAVE manuals on CD for free from the technical archive, they include full owners manuals.

The dampness is jut a freelander thing, drill a ~10mm hole in the lowest point of the cubby box, paint the bare metal to stop it rusting & it will let the water out.

Also, could be your rear, roof-rail mounts. Apparently there's a seal in there that can fail and will result in your boot getting wet. Also, apparently it runs down a plastic channel in the rear that can come apart and leak... Just saw this on another forum: http://forum.landrovernet.com/showthread.php/208233-Lockable-boot-compartment-filled-with-water

Just had a new rear door seal fitted to my 2005 TD4 due to water leaks, main LR dealer tell me that the seal has been modified and this should cure the leak (so far it has). Also advised me that the condensation on the cubby hole lid was due to the hot exhaust system, mounted beneath the cubby hole, heating the leaked water.
