Sometimes the seal is a simple rubber gasket. It could be missing. It may be installed so there is a gap at the top instead of the bottom. there could be a small crack in the lens . It should be water tight. You may have to take it off and inspect it. Should be an easy fix, probably just a dab of silicone.

Trunk water leak?


check that the tail light assembly is sealed all the way around the unit. Some units are fitted with a sealer and others use a rubber gasket. Reseal or use a new gasket under the assembly

Trunk leak-cant find the rear drains from sunroof


If water is in the trunk, then it is probably getting in through the rear tail lights. Common problem with early 90's Honda cars. To check, hose down the trunk area and tail lights, then look at the gaskets from inside the trunk. You'll probably will see some water. To fix, you need to take each tail light out and place a seal of silicon caulk between the body of the car and the tail light gasket and replace the tail lights. This should solve your water in the trunk problem.

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.
