In Reply to: water in trunk w/new gaskets? posted by sam smith on January 29, 2001 at 13:07:20:
I've got a mildewy smell out of the trunk - and the sound deadening mat between the shocktowers is moist - every time it rains. It'll dry out and go away, but never ceases to come back. I've got a new trunk seal, and new taillight gaskets, and the license plate fasteners don't leak.
Any suggestions? Only thing I can think left to check is that the rear sunroof drain isn't blocked - but I don't know how to get at it to blow compressed air down it. Ideas?
This has been driving ME crazy too. I replaced the entire trunk gasket but I get the same wet matting. I found out by picking up a cardboard box that was there for a day... ;-(( I'm feeling water just under the lip where the gasket is sealed to, so I know it's not coming in from the taillights. Is it really possible that water is coming down from the window or sunroof? Seems remote but I guess anything is possible.
