My leaky trunk!!!

So my trunk had at least a gallon of water in it the other day so I am on a mission to fix the leaks. I have fixed two leaks so far and got rid of about half the water problem now I see it is leaking from in front of the trunk lid, close to the speakers, on each side, cant figure where the heck its coming from, anyone? (leaking where the rust is doh!!)

Re: My leaky trunk!!!

yeah i have the same problem, im pretty sure you just need to replace the rusted trunk weather stripping and it should take car of the problem.

One question for you, where were the other two leaks coming from, and do your rear seats get soaked from braking, cause mine have been wet after the rain since i had the car, i guess the water spills over from the spare tire bay into the rear seats.

Re: My leaky trunk!!!

I was missing one rubber plug on the driver side, and I had a hole in the lower rear left quarter where a hole was drilled for the body kit that was on there before, every time I would drive water would be forced up that hole.

Re: My leaky trunk!!!

I bought every seal there was to buy for the trunk as I did not want anymore water accessing it due to my subs. So in that aspect, I cannot help you... Sorry.

Re: My leaky trunk!!!

I took off and inspected that seal that goes along that bottom of the back window that gets screwed on, it is in bad shape but it looks like even if that seal was off of there water shouldnt be able to get into the trunk, it would just run along the "gutters" that are on the outside of the seal that goes all the way around the trunk. My current leak is dripping on each side of the trunk above where the shock mount/spring perch is.

96lude, not to be an asshole or anything, but can you try and comprehend what you read a little more? I said that I had replaced the seals, etc and it stopped in my first post.

Re: My leaky trunk!!!

Ok, found the leak, water is getting by the lower molding (circled in pic) and going through the plastic clips that hold the lower molding into place and dripping down into the trunk. What I did was get into the trunk (that was the hard part at 6' 190lbs lol) with a flashlight and had my dad spray different spots until I could find where it was coming from. Now I know what it feels like to be on the way to get buried in the desert by mobsters lol, I bet they have bigger trunks in their cadillac's tho. +rep to all that were right
