Question about Honda CRX

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

You might be able to release the back seats and lay them down to climb into the trunk, or the seats may need to be unbolted for access to the trunk.

I have a 93 honda del sol and water is getting into bottom of car but i can't find it. i can hear it swissing whenever i turn. i'm afraid it will rust.


The water may be getting in to the car through a damaged, or worn piece of weather stripping around the doors, trunk lid, the front windshield or rear window. Has the car be in an accident recently? Is there rust around the front windshield, or rear glass? These issues can allow water to get into the vehicle.

Remove the spare tier and you should see a plastic drain plud in the floor pan that you can remove,worse comes to worse drill your own hole[make sure you not going to come out somewhere where it will do damage like fuel tank or brake line wireharness ect].

I have water swishing around similar to the last posting, can you help me with the location of the drainage plugs


Go to your trunk and drill a hole on the bottom right side metal compartment below the rear window and run a gas hose or similar hose for drain about 3' long. Match the hose with the hole you drill for a tight fit.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.
