1994 SL1
Default Trunk is wet in my '94 SL1

Hy,

I've found last monday in my trunk a lot of water in the driver and passenger side. I donn't know where the water comes, because last summer I have seal some parts of the trunk with silicone on the outside.

I've removes all carped's in the trunk, and see that ALL seals in the inside are a little bit wet, anybody knows where the water comes in the inside?

Marco

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I have a problem of water on my passenger side on my SC. I will get a tiny lake back there and it pisses me off.

...
I'll be sitting at my desk
With a gun in my hand, wearing a bulletproof vest singing
"My, my, my, how the time does fly, when you know you're going to die
By the end of the night."

3 CENTIMETERS? wow.
That's not a puddle. It's a swimming hole.

Is the water in the spare tire compartment or at the sides?

You need to put some newspaper down and line the floor of the trunk.
If it's warm enough, close the trunk and hose the rear window with a garden hose.

Check and then spray along the trunk lid.

I think the water is traveling under the outer panels, but you need to find the water track.

With the 2nd gen SC's it's a fairly well known & documented problem with the factory weld. Dunno if its the same type of problem or not on the OP's '94 but with the SC's you have to take the rear fenders off, scrape the black sealant crap off and put something else there. I used roofing tar (it was handy... lol) on my '97 SC2.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

i had this same problem but only on the passenger side the way i found out was have someone lay in the trunk with it closed and a flash light and get the hose and spray the back end of the car and you will find it. Mine was leaking where the spot welds are in the gully by the seal. I ended up welding around the spot welds and then used clear rtv silicon and i have no more leak probs.
