Water swishing about in trunk of Honda CRX del sol 1993

I just bought a Honda CRX and after some torrential rain I can hear water trapped in the trunk of the car. I've checked it out and it is dry and figured it must be down in the rear window well. The removable roof doesn't appear to be leaking. I read online that there are drainage channels in the trunk somewhere and if they get blocked water can get trapped. If this is the case where can I find a diagram of the area affected so when I take it in to be fixed I know what they are talking about? Is this a serious and continual problem or can it be sorted out?. Or have I bought a lemon?

    I took it to a panelbeater and they gained access to the water which was down in the rear window well, like I thought. The two drainage holes inside were clogged with dirt and debris so once these were cleaned out the problem was resolved. A design fault of the CRX obviously and one to be aware of. It's a smashing car otherwise. Thanks for the input on my question.

    Aaron by a panelbeater I am guessing you mean an autobody repairman, right? Anyway I have the same problem with a 91 CRX that leaks at the driver side rear window. I was told by a guy at MAACO who repainted the car for us that it is a design flaw with some drainage holes.

    Aaron could you be more specific as to where exactly the clogged drainage holes in the rear window well you mention. I would sure appreciate it. If it is possible could you take a pic of the area and somehow show where the drainage holes are located Thanks

Check all the rubber seals and rear lights, water tends to get trapped in those areas

No car ive ever heard of is like what you have described. i think you got hold of a bad car. eventually if there is water trapped in there somewhere it will make the frame start to rust out

Water In My Trunk


Hi Gregory:
2 issues:
1) water getting in
2)Water not getting out.

1) Water is not supposed to get in so you need to track down the leak. Check rubber around trunk lid, rear window seal.
2) Trunk is not intended to contain water, even on a temporary basis, so drain holes are not normally installed.

Fix the leak and you won't need to have drain holes.

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.

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.

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.

Leaking sunroof


Had same problem with 91 Prelude, after rain, water would leak from moonroof, especially when stopping, having a wet neck on the way to work is not fun! Solution was to remove the small screens and restrictor caps on the drain hoses. The hoses can be acessed through the trunk behind the quarter panel cover on either side, just have a can ready for the skanky water to drain once the plugs are removed. When all clear, the drains should drain out right behind the mud flaps in the rear on each side. There are fron drains as well, these run behind the driver and passanger kick panels and drain around the mud flaps in the front.
