Leaky Trunk, 72 Q Code
#1
Water finds its way into my trunk and sits in the left side drop-off. The trunk seal is new. Rear Window moldings installed correctly. Anyone else have this problem? Solution? Thanks, Tim

Tail light gaskets maybe. If its a convertible forget it take out the drain plugs.

Well window moldings don't matter much,

Water could be coming from the truck lid, the rear window the rear quarter windows or the roof drip rails could also come from the rear wheel well. When driving in the rain the wheel can kick water up and if the wheel well has pinholes or a bad seam then it can throw water into the trunk drop offs, your tail light panel could also be a source of water getting inside, check the tail light surround seals.

If there is water stains or rust from the water running down the sides of the quarters then you follow it.

You could pour water in different areas and see where it's coming from also.

Does your car have a fold down rear seat? If so stick your head back there and have someone spray water over the trunk area while you look around with a flashlight. We have done non fold down ones before but you better be with someone you really trust.Tongue

Jokes apart... i have a similar problem but water dont go into the trunk, goes on the package tray... everything is new and propperly installed...
You can check the tail lamps seals... maybe it goes frome there...
