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.
GOOD LUCK . . .

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.

!991 buick park avenue. the trunk fills with water during heavy rains..resealing rear window didn't help..where in the heck is the drain plug for the trunk..if any?


There is no drain plug. For the leaks be certain to investigate: sunroof drains, taillight seals, and the trunk seal. Many trunk seals actually channel water into the trunk. New designs are available on many GMs.

Why is my lexus ls 400 trunk leaking


ls 400 - trunk leaks water. Fix -- Under the trunk seal at the bottom/rear you'll see that two pieces of metal come together. The adhesive / sealant that is used at the factory seems to leak with age. pull off the seal and use a good adhesive sealer to prevent water from leaking down between the two pieces of metal. Reinstall the trunk seal after it has dried and set properly.

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.

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 is full of water! 1997 Sentra


How do you know the trunk seal is not leaking? Did you sit in the closed trunk while someone sprayed copious amounts of water over it? The other most common leak spot is from one of the tail lights. There is a goopy material that goes aroung the tail light that is supposed to seal it. You can usually pick this up at a auto supply store. It can also be coming from a body seam in the trunk. Check the lights and then check the body seams.

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.
