Trunk Leak I have a 1998 Cadillac Eldorado with a leaky trunk. The car has never been in an accident. I bought the car form my father 2 years ago and he never knew of the leak until I discovered it. What can it be? I hear these cars are notorious for trunk leaks.

Trunk leaks and or rear floorboard wet -- problem was caused by 1/2 inch cutouts through metal wheel-well when manufactured. undercoating of wheel-well kept water out until undercoating deteriorated. remove trunk upholstery (held in by plastic push pins) to access top of wheel-well and seal off cutouts.

Most of the time when there is a trunk leak the seal is leaking around it I would check it for any bad spots and replace it if needed.

Bought a new motor for thr trunk closer trunk still will not pull down. Fuses working 1999 cad eldo

the motors never burn out in a cadillac ive had them since 69 its always the switch on top , hook up a hot wire and a ground wire from a car battery to where the switch hooks up to and the hold down will go up and down , get your money back for the motor if you can , the switch is about 75 dollars from the factory, i herd a lot cheaper at a ford dealer because they are the same switch they use in big ford cars. the switch has 1 screw and one 2 wire harness, just a thought , you must know where the switch goes because you took it off the old motor and put it on the new motor ,,right?

Trunk Latch will not pull closed.

The small switch is the trunk by the pull down motor with the flap that depresses down is at fault. That is what you call the truck pull down switch. You can take this part and show it to a Cadillac or Ford parts department sales person and get a replacement for you car. Ford uses the same part for their Lincolns and Crown Vic's. The part is made by the very same supplier for Ford & GM. Ford will sell this part at a much lower cost as well compared to GM
