    Leak in my trunk

    Been noticing moisture in my trunk, boxes and papers damp....
    Didnt think too much of it at the time, but went down to where my
    spare tire is and found the pad on the bottom soaking wet, so much
    that there is water pooling on top.....

    I've seen a few other threads and a TSB for 2011's thats expired,
    and a few discussions about 2012's..

    Is there an actual TSB for this problem, and how many others are
    affected by a leaky trunk??

    MY CAR: 2012 LT/RS

    This seems to be an issue covered by the warranty. Hopefully, you are taking it to the dealer.

    Early in the '11 production, there was manufacturing problem with insufficient sealant being applied to a body seam in the taillight socket. I don't recall which side. That was corrected back then. There was another thread here about moisture getting into the trunk area. I think that was corrected by having new weather stripping installed around the trunk opening. I'd take it to the dealer if it was my car.

    I was rear ended some time ago and after getting the car back from the body shop, I had water in the trunk when it rained. Body shop found the leak by putting a worker in the trunk with a shop light and spraying the car from the outside with a high pressure hose. They had to tweak some body work to get it sealed up.

    I went out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

    I was just thinking that i'd hop in the trunk and have someone spray it.

    I did notice the previous posts for the 2011's. Wonder how many 2012's are leaking, and how many are going un noticed by the owner..
    Bringing it to the dealer on Monday. Said they need it for 3-7 days... Ugh... Atleast they have a loaner car for me...
    But I guess it's better than the alternative..... Wet stuff, stinky, mold...

    I will keep you filled in on the outcome....

    Dropped her off this morning and despite their original quote of keeping the car for 7 days, they phoned me at 4pm to advise that they think they've found the spot... There was a 6 inch part of the rolled metal connecting the upper sill of the trunk that was not sealed. They have now sealed it but still keeping the car til Wednesday to make sure it is all dried out so they can do another hose test to make sure that was the spot...

    SO, EVERYONE should check their spare tire area for water... It's not just the 2011's with the problem...
