Aloha guys. It's been a while since my last post. Which is good thing as I didn't have any drama in between.

BUT! Here is my question. we recently and still kinda having lots of rain. it's not as bad as what we had last few weeks, but raining a lot lately. With it, I been having some water leak all over my LS. some is at usual location and some just got me puzzled. This one is one of those.

Been having water leak in the left side of the trunk. The clear plastic container always get water inside and around the container is wet. I've checked the trunk area right above it and at this point, I do not see any hole or rotted area. I know the hose runs behind the left cover but that does not explain the water in the container. BTW, I did check the hose which runs inside that cover and did not seems to leak, but I haven't check the entire length. Just where I can see, so maybe the leak is at the top or near it? Weatherstrip seems to be in good condition without any tear or hole.

Where could it come from?

Empty out the trunk and get inside it with a flashlight. Close the lid and have someone hose it down everywhere outside till you see the water start coming in.

Yes that is the best way! Many possible leak points and be sure and check the tail lights.

Thanks guys. I thought there may be somewhere I missed, but guess I'll have to craw inside the trunk.

Another weekend project.

Leaving the drain plug out has worked many years for me how it makes a difference I don’t know, all I know is plug out trunk bone dry, plug in trunk a swimming pool. it might and it might not work for you but it work for me for some odd reason.
