Not noticed anything too bad when thrashing it.

The water leak in the boot can come from a bad seal around the tail light, it's a slow leak, but can cause some damage. I suggest you take the tail light out and clean all the old sealant off and use clear silicon, it really works. Also if it isn't that it could be the side rear windows, they can leak due to movement over the years, and they too need to be pulled out and cleaned and sealed. Not a hard job, trust me.

Another suggestion regarding boot leak. The rear light assemblies themselves might be leaking. Not just around the edges, but the gaps between individual sections that make up the assembly.

I had a boot leak that puzzled the Holden garages I took my car to. One finally noticed the light assemblies were leaking like sieves. They sealed the leaks with silicon.

You may already have remedied this problem, but the fan not working on lower speeds is due to a blown resistor located underneath the plastic cover that your wipers are on. Once you get the cover off there is a plastic dome on passenger side toward the center. Take that off. Undo the wire connector and unscrew the two screws. You should be able to remove a bird cage like cube. You'll probably see that one or more of the coils are blown. Get a new one and install it. Fairly simple task that takes about 30 min even for the most amateur car enthusiast. Good luck.

When I had my VN, water used to leak in through the actual key lock of the boot. The only way I found this out is I got in the boot and got a friend to simulate rain with a hose :)
