2002 SC2
Default Trunk leak on an '02

Is there a spot where the S-series cars commonly leak into the trunk? I'm thinking it's coming up from the wheel well somewhere. It's leaking on both the driver side and the passenger side, the latter being the worst.

Puddles accumulate in the little dips behind the wheel wells. Any suggestions?

...

There was a long thread on this not too many days ago. There is a seam above the tail lights that appears to be the main cause for the leak. The factory sealer on it deteriorates with age. You'll need to remove the tail lights to get to the seam. Loosening the rear fenders where they attach to the trunk deck helps improve access, too.
