Look for a break in the rubber gasket , make sure there is not any thing in the track. If you find that the gasket is broke use some silicon sealer to fix it

My trunk seems to have sprang a leak. I've been researching it and it's a common problem but I can't find a solution to it other completely changing the trunk...anybody know where this leak is?

WHOA...Who told you to "change the trunk"???? Unless you have been in an accident, that sounds a pretty drastic maneuver.
Here's what I would do:
1. Get one of your GOOD friends to help with this
2. Get into the trunk with a flashlight and some paper towels
3. SHUT THE LID (This is where the good friend comes in)
4. Have you buddy run a water hose along the edges of the trunk and you should be able to see where the water is coming in.
5. Check around any thing that is drilled into the fender, like the antennae, etc...
6. If the leak is small (this is where the paper towel comes in), run the paper towel along the trunk gasket to see if you are picking up any small amounts of water leaking in.
7. Be nice to your GOOD friend as he is your "key" to getting out of the trunk.

I'd bet there is a trunk gasket that needs to be sealed up in some place(s). Clear automotive silicon sealer is available at your local Auto Parts Store.

2006 Toyota trunk leaks when opening to put stuff in it in the rain

Check the channel that surrounds the trunk opening for dirt and debris. That water should be draining off before you open the trunk. Also check for interference from the trunk gasket or a damaged gasket

I have a 2004 Jetta gl 2.0 and I have had problems with lifting the trunk open. It has been progressively getting worse, and I see that the left side of trunk is lifting up now. Is this a common problem...

Check the trunk stays,(these are the small shock absorber type devices that hold the trunk open)
If it has progressively getting worse than I would say that one has slowly been leaking & placing a lot more strain on the other to the point now were they both have failed,Run your hand over the silver shaft wer it slides back into the black casing,if it is all oily the the seal has failed & the fluid has leaked out.These boot stays are reasonably cheap & take 2 seconds to replace.Also apply some lubricant to the boot hinges as over time these can get rusty & also lead to the premature failure of the boot stays.

After it rains water is in trunk Nissan Altima

When diagnosing a water leak, here's a handy tip. Check the accumulated water. If the water is dirty, look for leaks from the underside of the vehicle (floor, wheelwells, etc). If the accumulated water is clean, look for leaks from the topside of the vehicle (trunk seal, window seal, etc). To find where the water is coming from, shut yourself in the trunk with a flashlight and have an assistant run water over the trunk with a garden hose. You may have to remove some of the interior trunk trim to see exactly were the water is coming from, but chances are you'll find it. Also another common cause of water leaks are from impact damage, so check for collision damage repair. while your in there. -hope this helps.

Trunk leak

Check for defective spot welds around the plastic inserts on the left and right sides of the trunk. If the spot welds burnt through the metal, there will be holes were water can get in. Use some JB Marine Weld to seal up any holes or cracks in the sheet metal. Also, check the rubber drain holes under those inserts, that are in the sheet metal of the car, to make sure they are not blocked with road dirt. Also, check the weather stripping on the outside of the car, adjacent to the trunk. If the rubber and chrome trim weather stripping is pulling out (on the exterior of the rear quarter panel), then water will leak through the little plastic attaching screws and into the trunk beneath the plastic containers on the left and right front sides of the trunk.

Trunk leaking

I'm not sure how you know the weatherstrip isn't leaking,here's what i would do.With a trusted helper,get in the trunk and latch it.Have the helper spray the entire trunk area with a garden hose while you watch for any water leaks.That's the best way to check the weatherstrip for leaks,and it is likely that's where the leak is coming from.

Convertable roof and trunk won't open

The Roof Mechanism works with two motors similiar to the ones that wund the windows. Now the two mechanism are located in the left side of the trunk. 

The trunk wont open Because of the roof lid that is not closed properly. How you can test this is to press down on the right sid of the roof lid and then try to opne the trunk.

Now the reason that this is happening is that the roof lid is not closing properly nad pressing on a small orange buttin located just below the right hand side roof lid catch. How you are going to remedy this problem is to adjust the cable tension to close more securely.

Now the two motors in the trunk that works the convertable roof can be engaged and disengaged on motor works the roof lid and the other one the roof.

You need to get these motors in sync so that they open and close the roof in the correct order.

That is if the electric are still working.
