Default What caused my wet trunk

So, I was talking with my service advisor and asked him how difficult it would be to remove the rear quarter panel (to find the source of the leak), "Oh, not hard at all. There's like only three bolts holding it on" he says. Alright, sounds good. I had some time yesterday so I figured I'd work on it. Turns out, there's more like nine! Four of them are nice and hidden. Regardless, it wasn't all that complicated. Just removed the tail_light, bumper, and ground effects(?) under the door. Perfect, removed the quarter panel.... and there it is! Stupid crack. I threw some silicon everywhere to ensure no more leakage. Next time I'll attack the other side. It should be a little easier, not to mention quicker, now that I know (somewhat) what I am doing.
