Random Water leaks in the trunk....

Post by texan01 on Sun Nov 20, 2011 10:39 pm

So I was thinking on my car, why it only leaked when it rained and the car was stationary. I figured it was the channel for the rear window holding water and leaking down through the channel since it has the ever so slight beginnings of rust trying to form there.

Turns out the channel is fine, its the seam in the filler panel to quarter panel and water is leaking THROUGH the ancient body filler. I also found the culprit of my small rustout in the wheelhouse behind the rear door, water is filling the valley of the seal in the quarter window, and then runs out the front down through the body exhaust vent and settles in the hole there. Car is water tight otherwise.
