If it is rusted out yes. find a friend that is NOT claustraphobic and have him get in the trunk and close it. oh and he will need a flashlight. also becareful when you close the trunk that he is not near any of the hinges when you close it. I was the one to get into the trunk one time and the person slammed it down and i nearly was struck with one of then hinges use a hose and spray a small amount of water along the opening of the trunk.... have your friend keep and eye on the weatherstriping around the areas you are spraying. if it's leaking that way you will located it quickly.... now let your friend out of the truck.
If you can't find anyone to get in the trunk while you test it.... just by a replacement weatherstripping.



Kind of back yard mechanic way to do it but it's effective.

Water leaking from plugs on bottom of gas tank


That makes no sense whatsoever. If water were coming out of the fuel tank, so would fuel and the car would not be driveable in that condition. What you are thinking is the fuel tank may well be the bottom of the trunk. The spare tire wells in most trunks have drain holes in case water gets into the trunk. This is more common than you think. The gasket that seals the trunk lid often gets loose over time and allows water intrusion. The water finds its way to the spare tire well and drains out.

05 Reo Trunk fills up with water. Gasket replaced but didn't solve problem.


After it rains have you noticed and water drips that might give you a clue as to where the water is coming from? It might be leaking around the base of the back window. Does the water come in only when the car has been driving or does it come in while the car is parked? If the water is coming in while its parked then there is a hole somewhere on top, probably around the back window, and is running into the trunk. When its raining or after it has rained look in the trunk and see if you can see water droplets and this should give you a clue where its coming in. You can also hose the car down yourself. This might be a good idea to try when the trunk is dry so you can see what does and doesn't allow water in the car. Try running water on one side at a time. If it only seems to come in after you have been driving the car, it may very well be coming in around the wheel wells or around the gas fill pipe. Look inside the trunk and see if there are any rust spots and use a flash light to see if you can see any holes through the metal. take a close look around the sides on the floor of the trunk and see if there are any pieces of rust accumulating, this might help direct your search for the hole. You may also want to look behind the tail lights and see if there is rust damage. Check the seals around the tail lights and see if its getting in that way. Look behind the licence plate for rust damage as well. Try those things and see how it goes. Good luck.

1997 Olds ** watr leaking into floorboard. By searching all over google- i found a few situations where this car has a "wheel well" problem of throwing water from tire up into wheel well which...


No, you would need to replace the well but it sounds like this is not the problem, most of these that rott are visible with a light shining from outside in with trunk carpet removed from the sides, i think your problem may be in the front area. try sparing with a water hose, no pressure hose, spray around windsheild and see if it leaks inside, another thing to check is the heater box drain, theres a small hole coming through firewall that comes from the heater box , this drains water from ac and wtare that gets into box and drains it outside, check that to make sure its not plugged. if you notice the water after it rains then its not the heater box but check it anyway.

WATER LEAKING IN TRUNK 2001 AUDI TT ROADSTER FOR OVER 2 YEARS. SPOILER NOT THE CAUSE. WATER SLOSHING AROUND IN THE LID. LID FELT LINER SOAKED. GETTING OVER AN INCH OF WATER IN THE TRUNK WHEEL WELL. WATER...


Hello there
The only other place you may get water coming in...is through the rear light clusters.... again, the weather seals. Check to see if the nuts holding the lamps to the body are tight -- nip them up. SOmetimes, -if water is coming in there - take the lamps out and bed them in silicone sealant - the same as before - and refit the lamps. This does happen now and again on these so bear it in mind....

2000 seville sls trunk tire well full of water


These cars (Sevilles) have a problem with water in the trunk. It comes from clogged sunroof drains. There are 4 of them. One in each I-Pillar and one on each side that travel back toward the trunk. They can get clogged, and my mechanic tells me that this car has had issues with this.

Pontiac Bonneville with water leaking into trunk


same problem happened to my 2005 bonneville. inside the trunk and behind the carpet covering the wheel wells there are two water drain tubes. these tubes run down the inside of the "c" pillar and drain the water from the sunroof. they make a 90 degree bend at the bottom back of the wheel well(inside the trunk) and fit inside a round rubber tube/grommet at both of the rear wheel wells that lets the water drain outside.either the plastic 90 degree tube has come out of the rubber tube/grommet or the drain tube could be plugged up with debris. also make sure the two round rubber tube/grommets are installed correctly and seal the hole going through the trunk to the outside of each wheel well. this is of course only for those bonnevilles that have a factory sun/moon roof.

Trunk Leak


Most of the time when there is a trunk leak the seal is leaking around it I would check it for any bad spots and replace it if needed.
