Water leak in boot

Hi marsnange,

One of the most common problems I see with the Z3 water leaks in the trunk comes from the 3rd brake light lens. You can open the lid, and check for a leak while pouring a little water around the lens. Another common leak is from the trunk seal itself. Look for tears,holes and any deformities in the gasket. The is a slight probability the antennae base could be leaking. The rubber based should not look cracked or deteriorating.

The battery cavity in the trunk fills up with water. I have removed the battery and dried it out but there doesn't seem to be any drain holes to drain out any water collected in there. I found a small...

I think you should be looking for the water leak first ! The trunk rubber seals and the tail lamps are high on the suspected list. The drain hose you are looking at could be the fuel tank filler vent hose , necessary to stop vapor lock in the fuel system . Remove the trunk liner and replace with newspaper and check daily for water tracking daily . good luck

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.

I have a 2003 m3 convertible and the trunk fills up with water

I'm assuming you checked the seal around the trunk just to make sure it wasn't bumped off track in any way maybe taking groceries out or putting anything in? The car is too new to be suffering from any dry rot I should think. If you drain the water and it comes back I would think the seal around the trunk would be suspect in the matter.
