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

SOURCE: there is a water leak

This would be your Heater core. They are very cheap to purchase but not so easy to put in since you have to drop the underneath of the dashboard out and aslo have to remove the lines from inside the engine compartmnet. The water goes from the radiator through the heater core to produce the heat for your heater. You should check your radiator or overflow bottle and if the water level is low then this is definetly your problem. This is the most logical, however there could but unlikely be a leak from your windshield. The heator core is located exactly where you say the water is coming from. After reading more does this happen more times other then when it is raining?

SOURCE: 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.

Miata 1991 w soft top,my daughter bought. First hard rain water was in the trunk, in the back of interior and driver's floor board. Plus we heard the sloshing of water noise. More like waves. We used

the water may be in the rocker panels of the body ( that area that runs under the doors from mudguard to mudguard on the sides ) there will be drain plugs in the under side that will let the water out. I would be checking the rear window for leaks and the boot lid seal. Check the boot seal for security by placing a layer of Vaseline on the boot lid where the rubber will be touching and close the lid. Open the lid and see where the vaseliene has not been disturbed and that will be the leak area

Water in trunk of toyota avalon

Either your rear windows leaks or the boot seal is cracked, torn or not glued properly on the car body flange. Check these first, or try and sit in the boot with a strong torch and have someone to hose the rear part of the car. Usually you'll find the leak and fix it.

Usually the leak is from a faulty gasket, or the lid is not adjusted correctly to seal against the gasket.

1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water

Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday

Toyota camry trunk is leaking

you have to loosen the hood hinge where the lock is and move the lock ring lower to get the lid close tighter, if the car was damaged by an accident then you will have to get it repaired by a body shop or by someone who can find the high spot that it is hitting.

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.
