Default Throw your trunk leak causes at me!

Ok, i got what seems to be the usual symptoms of a trunk leak. Wet carpet in trunk and wet floor in the rear seat. I did the whole bit with checking the door seals and pushing them into place and splicing a bit of rubber in the gap on the bottom of the doors. it worked great there. so PART of my back seat floor problem is solved. I just have wet carpeting near the hump in the back. In the trunk i have wet carpet on the extreem left and right sides of the trunk and along the back side of it (bumper end). I've done the search thing and can only come up with Door seals, trunk seal, rear window leak (where glass meets rubber) and power antenia drain tube.

SO...

What else can i check? i wanna get this soon cause i had an ICE RINK back there this morning!!!

if you stand at the back bumper facing the front of the car with the trunk open. Look at the bottom right corner of the window. In the trough. I had cracks there that looked like they were just paint cracks. Ended up being the source of one of my trunk leaks.

Tail light assembly seals are a common leak into the trunk. Go get a cup of hot cocoa and take a look at jr's3800 super duper leak post. Most of the common and uncommon leaks are discussed and pictured there: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=29366
