Hi 

Im not quite shure of the location from your description, But if there is a electric motor in the trunk it operate's the convertable roof and is always a good idea to keep your electric's dry.

Does the 1995 Toyota camry have a drain plug in the trunk to drain rainwater out?? trunk leaks.


Probably not.
I'd suggest that you check the rubber seal. Sometimes you have to remove, clean, and re-install them with rubber cement.
Tracking down and fixing the leak is a lot more rewarding than drilling holes to let the water run out.
Cheers.

Tire compartment is full of water. The carpet in the trunk is not wet. it appears new and well kept. like the water is coming from below.


If you have a center brake light in the trunk lid. This is how the water gets in the well. I silicone all them. Sometimes the rear spoiler will let water in also. I also drill a hole in the bottom to drain the water. Sometimes there are plastic plugs you can pop out under the spare tire.

Rain water is getting in, through my trunk I believe, and soaking my back seat.


its along way from the trunk to the back seat. check the back window,and the doors, get a water hose and have someone inside check it for a leak. Water in the trunk is usually caused by bad seals at the tail lights. But water in the trunk usually stays in the trunk and spare tire area. If the car has been wrecked, then who knows.

Where are the chassis drain plugs on a 2003 Pontiac bonneville? My car leaks in the trunk and onto the floor on the front passenger floor


Your trunk leak most likely is rubber seal that runs the perimeter of trunk when trunk lid is open. Leak on pass floor can be a combination of things. Heater core or if car has sunroof, there is drains that run down windshield posts. Carpet will be wet and sticky if heater core is leaking (not to mention coolant level low) If it's sunroof drain, car has to be put on a lift and drains blown out with compressed air.

Battery location on a 2005 BMW 545i?


The battery location for a 2005 BMW 545i is in the trunk. Open your trunk, and on the right side of the car (passenger), look for two black plastic screws (flathead fit) along the paneling. Use a flathead (from the tool kit amongst the trunk lid), or a paper-clip to turn both of these plastic screws 90 degrees, you should be able to pull these out with your fingers afterwards. The plastic screws hold in the protective paneling, you'll have to to lift up trunk-liner (covers your spare tire), then pull the paneling outwards; underneath, you'll find the battery and terminals.

Spare tire is stuck to the bottom of my trunk


If there is rust there is going to be damage anyway but there is no telling how much till you take the tire out. Better now then let it rust away where you cant see it and possible cause more problems

Water in spare tire compartment of trunk after heavy rain.


U need to carefully check the seams of the sheetmetal for any sign of water or dirt from the road, there is no common leak on these cars, in fact they seldom leak anywhere, the water is most likely splash up from the road, unless u left something out like it was sitting when this water accumulated. Let me know that info.
