Clean the area around the light and on the body of the car where the light fits in the area for the gasket.. You can lightly grease the gasket on both sides before fitting the gasket and appling the light cluster to the body work. Do not over tighten the fixing nuts/bolts.

On very serious cases I have used silicon sealant in place of the grease. Be careful if you go this route because you may need to replace the light clusters and will need to be careful when taking them off not to do any damage to the paint work.

This solution has worked on Ford, Vauxhall and VW in the past. I know it is a pain having a boot full of water. I hope this information is helpful to you.

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.

Remove trunk liner. Put a light dusting of baby powder down. Close trunk and wet rear of car with hose. Check for leaks. May be a tail light leaking.

The trunk is leaking rain into the interior


buy some foam spray from a can spray it around trunk seam bottom not trunk lid. close trunk to let it dry and shape foam. also check for any holes in trunk. remove all padding to look for wholes. spray foam into any holes found. this foam can also be trimmed after it dries and hardens.

1993 honda accord ex drove in rain, belt squeeled under hood and dash lights { ie.. no idiot lights} went out and car stalled but stayed on now no spark no lights, radio still works but no clock either...


you have gotten water on a 2" x 2" circuit board box in the trunk drivers side near your rear taillights. this has to be replaced. it is only available at dealer. email me back if this fixes it. drewshouse62@yahoo.com. i had the same problem on my 98 accord.

Car trunk leaking


The most likely place that it may be coming from is the Rear window seal.
When the rear window is put in - a rubbery tar is used... and after time (especially if parked in the sun) it will shrink, and dry out.
Usually at the top of the window is the culprit.
it will involve removing the rear window CAREFULLY and replacing the seal with a 2 part epoxy.

If you have a sunroof - there is also a drain tube that may have come disconnected.

Water is leaking into the trunk of my 2005 Honda accord whenever it rains


My 1990 Honda Accord does this too.
When I wash it or when it rains. If I open the trunk/deck lid water flows out of the right rear tail light housing into the trunk.

Solution: get some rubber gasket sealant and apply under the lower gasket around the rear window on each side at the corners. Allow for drying time. Close the trunk and try some water if this doesn't work you will likely have to replace the rear window seal.

Best of luck.
