Could be the drains but most likely from spoiler leaking past the seals or wheel wells rusted out or caulk from seams is it when you wash car or rain it rains check it out use a garden hose for water test

Each time it rains, I get water leak in the trunk of my audi allroad in the cargo area. How do I fix this problem?


Can't fix anything till you find out where the leak is

Get inside & have someone run the hose on it

Remove whatever trim you have to,to see the water

I have a leak in the trunk and it is not the sunroof plugs. where else could that water be coming from?


The rubber water shield (weatherstripping) around the trunk opening must be leaking. Feel around for moisture along and under the rubber strip. Maybe a tear is letting water in. Maybe the rubber came loose from where it is glued down. If you find a possible source of the leak, use rubber cement (or weatherstripping glue from a parts store) to seal it back up.
Good luck.

!991 buick park avenue. the trunk fills with water during heavy rains..resealing rear window didn't help..where in the heck is the drain plug for the trunk..if any?


There is no drain plug. For the leaks be certain to investigate: sunroof drains, taillight seals, and the trunk seal. Many trunk seals actually channel water into the trunk. New designs are available on many GMs.

2000 Celica back seats bottom stay wet all the time. I removed the seats and they are soaked with water. Where is it coming from. Thanks for any help.


If the car has a sunroof, your sunroof drains are backed up and leaking into rear (from pillars) need to be blown out w/compressed air. If not, might be leaking through trunk seal and/or lower glass rear window seal.

What would cause the inside of the trunk to stay wet, when it never has before?


The two main causes are: 1) the rubber seal on the body where the trunk lid closes. check for tears or where it is not seated properly
2) The rear window is leaking around the seal
Of course if you have an antenna or the like which has been mounted on the rear fenders that seal could be the problem.

Accumulation of water under the spare tire. Cannot find any leaks


Here is the best way to find out where the water is coming in. Get inside the trunk and have someone you trust close the trunk. make sure you do it when it is daylight or a well lit garage. while you are in the trunk with the lid closed you will be able to see light where there is any gap around the trunk seal and that will be where the water is coming in. some times the sides of the trunk opening gets bent down causing the trunk gasket not to seal properly.

Pontiac Bonneville with water leaking into trunk


same problem happened to my 2005 bonneville. inside the trunk and behind the carpet covering the wheel wells there are two water drain tubes. these tubes run down the inside of the "c" pillar and drain the water from the sunroof. they make a 90 degree bend at the bottom back of the wheel well(inside the trunk) and fit inside a round rubber tube/grommet at both of the rear wheel wells that lets the water drain outside.either the plastic 90 degree tube has come out of the rubber tube/grommet or the drain tube could be plugged up with debris. also make sure the two round rubber tube/grommets are installed correctly and seal the hole going through the trunk to the outside of each wheel well. this is of course only for those bonnevilles that have a factory sun/moon roof.

I have water leaking on the right rear floor passenger side


Sounds to me like your issue is with condensation from your air conditioner. The condensation isn't properly draining, probably from a damaged or clogged drain hose.
