If you have water under the spare you have a leak in the trunk. this requires two people. empty out the entire trunk including the spare and visually check for holes, rust, etc. then have one person with a flashlight crawl into the trunk. close the trunk and spray the perimeter of the hatch back door with water. chances are the person inside will see the water coming in somewhere. once the leak is located, patch it with silicon caulk.

Can be the rear door seal (check for damage)

or seal around the rear light cluster but that's less likely

I have a 1990 Probe Gt hatchback. I have alwaya had a problem with a leak - I have 3" of water in the spare wheel well. Where is the water coming from and how do I fix it?

My 89 Mustang used to do this as well. With my car, it was caused by a bad hatchback weatherstrip. The water would run down the seam at the bottom in the center and trickle into the spare tire well...

Got a flat tire. How do i get the spare tire out?

there is a sticker near your jack that describes the procedure( or in your owners manual). Basically you take the lug wrench and turn a bolt located under the carpet near the back hatch. This will lower the wheel to the ground, then you slip the retainer through the wheel to remove tire.

Where is the sienna 2006 spare tire?

If it's all wheel drive, there is no spare unless the add-on has been installed. You would find it inside the rear hatch in that case and you would'nt be asking. If it's front wheel drive, it will be under the passenger side floor, adjacent to the sliding door.

Owners manual has been stolen :( need to locate the spare tire! HELP!!!

The spare tire will be under your car. Along with the jack and tire iron, there should be a rod that you slide into a hole on the top of your bumper with the hatch open. This rod lowers your spare tire from under your car

Water in the trunk where the spare tire is...

It's most likely the weather stripping along the top of your trunk, where the hinges are. There is probably a bad contact, or missing the weather stripping.

pour a small amount of water down the back of the car, give it some time and then take a look inside maybe you will see where it's dripping from. if you can, fold your seats down and sit inside the car with a flashlight while someone else empties a glass of water approx. on your back window, roof of car etc.

Hope this helps :)

Water in spare tire compartment

I ran into this same problem. I took my 2006 Equinox to a dealer and they found that the water was coming in where the wire harness for the hatch back goes in to meet with the rest of the car on the passenger side near the hinge. There was no sealant there. They put some sealant on and problem was solved. It might be a good idea to look here first.
