Default Trunk Leak??

OK.. so after it rains, even a few days after it rains, i open my trunk and water drips down from the top rolling down (towards the front of the car due to incline). My question is if thats normal to '99 or equivalent vehicles or could something be wrong with the weatherstripping for the trunk?

-thanks!

I dont quite get what you are saying.

water rolls off the trunk lid into the inside of the trunk?

Yes, it is a design thing. Water will drip into the trunk from the trunk lid when it is opened, if the lid is wet or has recently been wet. But if you reach under the mat in the corners and find it wet there, that'* another problem.

I recently heard there is a TSB on this problem. I suffer from it too...

I'll be looking it up when I get a chance.

Definitely a design problem. Mine has always done this. Quite frustrating during the rainy season

BB, if you find that TSB, I'd love to see that there is a fix for it.
