you might need to get a new trunk gasket but where exactly in the trunk is it wet at?

Try new taillight gaskets first. ~12.00 apeice.


After the first three hurricanes last year, my trunk had about a foot of water in it because of those gaskets!

oh, thats what those tubes are.

it only collects in the pass rear corner in that well, just to the right of the spare tire. everywhere else it seems ok.

BTW, i also had some water in my right rear tailight, i just removed it and rinsed out the entire tailight, 20 years of dead flies in there, :
