The area under the spare tire in my 2002 Highlander has been filling with water, sometimes becoming so full that it overflows when driving and soaks the carpets all the way up to the front seats. The problem, which I finally figured out today, was small cracks, just above the point where the air cylinders that hold the tail gate open are connected to the body. The cracks on both sides were apparently never sealed during assembly. Water flowing back over the top is supposed to enter the slot between the roof and the top of the tail gate, flow down either side, and then exit over the rear bumper. In my case, water was flowing into the aforementioned cracks, down inside the vehicle, and accumulating in the wells on either side of the spare tire compartment, as well as the area under the spare time. My solution was to seal the cracks with a silicone sealent. This has to be a design or assemble fault, but the fix was too simple to bother the dealer. Now I just neet a week of sunshine to dry the Highlander out.

Best and cheapest to fix is to replace vacuum lockers with manual lockers. It is easy to do. Only 6 bolts per front wheel. This is the most trusted way of 100% engagement.
