water in the trunk...?
Ok, so I noticed on Monday that when I opened my trunk, it had kind of a funky smell to it. I put my hand on the trunk floor and it was soaked. I figured that maybe the trunk wasnt closed the whole way and the dealership lot attendant washed the car and water leaked into the trunk. No biggie.
So, I pulled the cover and the spare tire and there was a little puddle of water (and apparently someone spilled almonds in there at one point) in the tire well. I sopped it up with a towel, and put it all back together.
Today, just for a sanity check, I opened the trunk again and noticed condensation on the trunk trim and also on the inside of the trunk. So, I pulled open the cover and looked in the well. Again, a little puddle of water.
Upon further inspection, I did notice that my trunk seal has a rip in it but the rip is located at the bottom of the seal by the trunk latch. If I look in the compartments where my battery and CD player are, they seem to be dry.
I was planning on looking into the sunroof drains to make sure they are clear but if they werent, I would see water by the battery and the CD player in those trunk wells, correct?
Could the seal rip at the bottom be my culprit?
I am planning on climbing in the trunk and having the wife hose the trunk down to check for leaks but wanted to get your guys opinion as well.
