Open up the trunk, and look at the metal seam that goe's all the way around the edge of the trunk area, the weather stripping, that you described should go somewhere along this area.

What is causing my trunk to leak on my 1993 Honda accord?


Try checking the seals. If they are cracked or pieces missing. That will cause leaking.

Getting water in my trunk


it's either coming in from a bad trunk weather strip gasket or it could be coming in from the tail lights. You need to strip everything out of the trunk, get in the trunk close the trunk and have someone outside with a garden hose and let the water flow on the roof towards the trunk and you will need to see where it is coming from. once the leak is found you either need to change the weatherstrip or use an RTV or body seam sealer to stop the water from coming in.

The water leaks into my boot and the left or passenger side inside the car leaving huge puddles of water inside. very unpleasant. also the 2007 MX5 convertable - no leaks in roof or rubbers. help please.


  • If water is getting in from the driver's or passenger's window near the soft top weather-strip, shut the door after closing the window. When putting up the hood, lower the windows while you secure the hood latches & then raise the windows. These actions force the window to contact the weather-strip a bit differently than when the window is closed while the door is closed.
  • There are two common places an MX5 will leak water into the interior - where the top meets the windshield frame- and around the windows where they contact the mouldings. Leaks at the windshield frame are usually caused by dirty or damaged mouldings or the latches not being tight enough. Usually you will notice the top will squeak and rattle if it isn't latched down tight.
  • Wetness in the trunk/boot can be caused by a range of factors. 1. Dried out weather-stripping around the trunk. 2. A cracked rain rail on the convertible top. 3. Dried out weather-stripping around the tail lights.
  • There are three mouldings that fit around the window, and water can leak either between them and the window, or between them and the top. Each of these mouldings is attached to a metal 'track' that is secured to the top frame with two screws. The window moulding that is closest to the windshield header is held on by two screws, the others have nothing holding them.
  • Water can collect in the weather-strips due to small crack or splits along the edge of the hood where it folds after a years of regular top-up top-down use. The only real solution is a new hood.

Ok now my trunk is leaking somewhere . when it rains i could get at least 2 gal of water in the spare tire compartment. i've been dealing with it for awhile but now my car is getting a musty odor in it and...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the weather rubber strip of the trunk. If the rubber is worn out or not properly secured, the water tends to leak inside. Have it secured and replaced then observe how it goes.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Parking lights and high beams work great. No low beams. No daytime running lamps. Also, water running down roof and along trunk rim, goes through rear light and leaks into trunk.


replace black trunk weather stripping on rim of trunk. easy to do yourself.
As for the lights check your daytime running light relay/module -possible problem. You may want a tecnician to inspect this for you..

You can actually find NOS weatherstripping for old Saturns at getsaturn parts.com. At least I was able to buy a new one for a 94 last year. It is a website for a Maryland dealer who sells at below regular cost. I have had 5 saturns and they never sold me a bad or wrong part. You could also look around on ebay, but what you would find there is another used leaky one.

I have a 2001 Olds Aurora and the trunk keeps filling up with water. Can't find a leak. Any suggestions?


Try this trick, add vasoline to your weather strip to your trunk. What happens is when the weather strips start to get old, they can no longer conform to the truck and gaps form letting water to get in. Good luck and keep me posted.

Trunk leak


Check for defective spot welds around the plastic inserts on the left and right sides of the trunk. If the spot welds burnt through the metal, there will be holes were water can get in. Use some JB Marine Weld to seal up any holes or cracks in the sheet metal. Also, check the rubber drain holes under those inserts, that are in the sheet metal of the car, to make sure they are not blocked with road dirt. Also, check the weather stripping on the outside of the car, adjacent to the trunk. If the rubber and chrome trim weather stripping is pulling out (on the exterior of the rear quarter panel), then water will leak through the little plastic attaching screws and into the trunk beneath the plastic containers on the left and right front sides of the trunk.
