Alright, the best way to approach this trunk leak is this. Remove all items from trunk. Remove the interior trunk panels & the trunk floor mat. Check the spare tire well for any water, if water is present, remove spare tire, jack, lug wrench etc. Now for the easy part. There are two ways to do this: 1) Close the trunk lid, go into the back seat, open the pass thru & shine a bright light into the trunk. Have someone run water over the whole area of the trunk including maybe the lower 1/3 of thr rear window. Check very closely for a leak. 2) leave the trunk lid open, get a 1 liter bottle of water. Pour very slowly the water into the drainage trough on the right side of the trunk, observe it run down to the triangular drainage opening at the left top side of the right side tail light assembly. the water will eventually drain out through the rear bumper area, but look very closely in the trunk for any water coming in. Put your head right in there & look at the tail light bucket area. Pay special attention to unibody seams. Then also do the same procedure on the drainage trough on the left side. Either of these two methods should bear definitive results.
