I have noticed that in really wet weather (moved to Vancouver recently), my 2002 Hyundai Accent GSI starts to smell bad (like wet carpet). Upon inspection, the back seats feel damp to touch and when I lift...


Check the trunk rubber for damage and/or improper mounting. There will ordinarily be drain holes in the area where the tail light assemblies mount to the back of the car. If they are plugged up, the water will have nowhere to go when it rains, and will seep through the gasket between the tail light housings and the body metal. If unable to find the problem, have someone soak the back of the car in the trunk / tail light area with a garden hose, and watch for water intrusion from inside the trunk with a flashlight (hopefully, the rear seat backs flip down so you can gain access to the trunk from inside the car). Good luck!

Remove a rear tail light assembly & install a new one


Open the hatch (or trunk if it's a convertible) and peal back the back the trim against the rear most panel. You'll be able to see a lot of large plastic wing nuts. Unscrew them and pull the lense straight out.

Usually the leak is related to the seal around the tail lights, you can remove your tail light very simply by removing the 4 10mm nuts that hold it in.

The dash lights related to the emergenct brakes come on and off, the brake lamps indicator stays on and the ABS now and then. The trunk gets water when it rains and I think it leaks around the tail lights....


I changed all the bulbs in the tail lights after cleqaning all the connections, then sealed the lens around the trunk with clear silicone sealant. This solved most of the problem. The rain would get in around the lens and short the connections. The emergency brake light indicator and the ABS indicator still go on and off, but I havent checked the sensor yet.

Water is leaking into the trunk of my 2005 Honda accord whenever it rains


My 1990 Honda Accord does this too.
When I wash it or when it rains. If I open the trunk/deck lid water flows out of the right rear tail light housing into the trunk.

Solution: get some rubber gasket sealant and apply under the lower gasket around the rear window on each side at the corners. Allow for drying time. Close the trunk and try some water if this doesn't work you will likely have to replace the rear window seal.

Best of luck.

When it rains water in in the rear sloshing


Many cars do have drain holes that are along the rain wells, or where the rain flows down around the lip of the trunk. If you pop open the trunk, look along the lip of the trunk for what appears to be craters or indentations along this trail. You may have to run your finger along the rim to find them. Many times they fill with dirt, or other debris and get plugged. This happened to me and I had someone blow them clear with an air hose.
