Default 2000 trunk leak

Hey everyone!

I purchased my 2000 Bonny SE this past October. I've absolutely loved the car. However, there have been some problem points. I had to get the manifold gasket replaced in January which cost around $625!

Now, I have another complaint.

When I open my trunk after a rain or a car wash, water leeks out from under the trunk lid. It seems to run down through the area where the trunk latches to the bottom. Have any of you had this? I can't seem to tell where the water is leaking from. I am taking it into the dealership this Friday because they have a "leak specialist," come in and take care of it. How much am I looking at paying for this service?

Any help is appreciated!

There is a service bulletin that addresses like four different locations on the deck lid alone for potential water leaks. Check that bulletin out if you can, and see if dealership can help you out. Your problem sounds like it may be identified in the service bulletin.

My 2000 SE was getting water in the trunk. I noticed wet carpet on the drivers side (side wall). There was also water in the spare tire well, which I guess collected from the carpet over time?

I took it to the dealer who told me that the drain (or drip rail) from my sun roof was plugged with crap. They cleaned it and it'* been bone-dry ever since.
