Remove the interior and locate the source of the leak.

Trunks are easy.

Check for rust under the rear window and rear window trim. Also check around the seam sealer in between the trunk seal and rear window. Where are you in North FL? I am in Lakeland. Welcome!

Welcome.Check your gasket is glued on,mine was loose and the previous donkey who owned the car had the joint at the top.After a heavy rain,my trunk would always be wet.

Mine leaks and has rust under the rear window. I thought it was an odd spot for rust, but I've seen a few with the tell-tale bubbles on the panel between the trunk lid and the rear window. I'll probably be popping off the rear window trim today to take a peek at the seal.

Remove the interior from the trunk and repair the leaked part.The Rust is the main reason of Leak.In order to remove the rust from your car you have to apply WD40 twice a week.
