Simply go to a good body shop. The best will be family owned and are proud of their work. Most likely you will need a gasket of some kind any possibly some welding. Look in your yellow pages under auto body work or body shop. Thanks for using Fixya.

Remove trunk liner. Put a light dusting of baby powder down. Close trunk and wet rear of car with hose. Check for leaks. May be a tail light leaking.

Why is my lexus ls 400 trunk leaking


ls 400 - trunk leaks water. Fix -- Under the trunk seal at the bottom/rear you'll see that two pieces of metal come together. The adhesive / sealant that is used at the factory seems to leak with age. pull off the seal and use a good adhesive sealer to prevent water from leaking down between the two pieces of metal. Reinstall the trunk seal after it has dried and set properly.

Water in rear window well


There are no drain holes in the trunk. You would have to drill your own, but be careful not to drill into anything. The problem that needs to be addressed is to find the water leak. The easiest thing to do is to put someone in the trunk with a good bright flashlight. While this person is in there take your garden hose and slowly wet down the back of the car ( don't go to fast ). At this time the person can look for water coming in the trunk then you can fix the problem. Could be a gasket or window leak. Just take your time and you'll find the leak. Also try not to do this on a really hot day trunks can be very hot and dangerous at times like that.

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.

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.

Water In Trunk


If it is rusted out yes. find a friend that is NOT claustraphobic and have him get in the trunk and close it. oh and he will need a flashlight. also becareful when you close the trunk that he is not near any of the hinges when you close it. I was the one to get into the trunk one time and the person slammed it down and i nearly was struck with one of then hinges use a hose and spray a small amount of water along the opening of the trunk.... have your friend keep and eye on the weatherstriping around the areas you are spraying. if it's leaking that way you will located it quickly.... now let your friend out of the truck.
If you can't find anyone to get in the trunk while you test it.... just by a replacement weatherstripping.



Kind of back yard mechanic way to do it but it's effective.
