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.

Trunk lid filling with water


check the gasket inside your trunk, were it meets your trunk lid first, then if thats ok, pull your spare tire out and make sure the drain holes have the rubber plugs in them, if you have had an accident and it was in the rear end area, bring it back to the shop that fixed it oh one more thing, your trunk lid might need to be adjusted, check to see if it lines up, if the gaps around it are all the same, if not, not to adjust it,

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.

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon, 4 cyl, automatic. Water is leaking into the trunk and under back passenger seats. Is this only from tail lights as suggested online?


I would check the trunk seal first.

1. Thoroughly clean the seal and the surface it touches with windex.

2. Apply a semi thin layer of grease to the seal, you don't want alot just enough to transfer to the other surface when you close the trunk.

3. Close trunk completely and then reopen and examine the grease pattern on the surface it touches.

If there is a break or a messy spot (smear) in the pattern that is where the water might be leaking on from.
