2000 Hyunadi Sonata has water in the trunk

I have a 2000 Hyunadi Sonata that has water leaking in to the trunk when it rains. I cannot get the water out of the bottom of the trunk (where the spare tire sits). Does anyone know if there is a drain here that maybe is plugged or did these cars not come with one?

The majority of cars like these have a small dollar coin size piece of foam/rubber that plugs a drain hole. It may have been put on at the factory with some type of glue/adhesive so it may not be the easiest thing to take out. You may have to take out the spare tire (not sure on this car). You may want to try and re-do the foam/rubber stripping around the seals of the trunk. It is not the hardest thing in the world to do (in order to stop the water altogether)..

My 2000 honda civic has a leak in either the tail light or trunk leaking into the passenger compartment on the drivers side


I am assuming the water comes in when it rains.
Could be the trunk gasket or the tail light.
You may need a body shop to find the leak.

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.

Car trunk leaking


The most likely place that it may be coming from is the Rear window seal.
When the rear window is put in - a rubbery tar is used... and after time (especially if parked in the sun) it will shrink, and dry out.
Usually at the top of the window is the culprit.
it will involve removing the rear window CAREFULLY and replacing the seal with a 2 part epoxy.

If you have a sunroof - there is also a drain tube that may have come disconnected.

Lexus ES300 trunk leaks when it rains


This may sound odd but if you can put a small person in the trunk with a flashlight while you pour water in the areas suspected, they can trace the leaking area, believe it or not I used to use this method while I was a Ford mechanic. Otherwise, maybe you can apply clear or black silicone to the area or remove the screw or bolt and coat it with silicone and replace it.
