    Need help finding a rain leak

    It's raining and one of my SC2s has sprung a leak.

    2001 SC2 automatic. The front is up on ramps, so the car is at an angle.

    Water was pooling behind on the rear floor passenger side.

    I put a towel there to absorb it as it comes ins. Now I find water pooling UNDER the carpet. I can push down on the carpet and watch the waves beneath it.

    It does not appear to be coming through the door.

    How else might it be getting in?

    If I remember correctly they had issues at the seam in the fenderwell in that area. Factory just tach welded it all together and then sprayed on some kind of sealant.

    Disregard, I though you said trunk.

    Does it have a sunroof? If so the drains are probably clogged. Otherwise door seal.

    Sunroof yes.

    Trunk leaks too. I thought it was the rubber seal coming off. Maybe itís what you said, causing the rubber seal to detach.

    So I believe I have ruled out both the sunroof and the door seal.

    I covered the sunroof and there was no water beneath the cover after the rain. And I put Sil-Glyde on the door seal and after rain found no trace of water beading (which I would expect).

    About 90% of the water goes to the rear passenger area.

    My next planned step is to pull the interior paneling in that area and poke around.

    Is there a place between the trunk and the passenger door that might be prone to leakage?
