I learned about removing the plugs on here some time ago and it worked for me.
No actually, I don't remember seeing those at all.

Check if yours has them, they're only about 1/4" diam., and would be at the lowest point of the lid (in the closed position) but off to the sides. When the lid is open you can see them, on the trunk lid itself. Not sure who pointed this out to me or I would give them credit :P

Default Water ETC.

Do you have a sunroof ? if yes then you need to check the sunroof draintubes...
I have a 2000 Bonne and have done the "interior GUTTING" thing to find water under the interior carpet AND trunk....take it from me I found all kinds of leaks !! BUT I did find them !!

The Rear sunroof draintubes follow this route -->the rear window pilliars->, behind the rear seatback->, down into the trunk left and right quarter panels behind the trunk carpet lining--> to a "RUBBER HOSE CONNECTION" that exits the bottom of the quarterpanel right behind each rear wheel. If this connection comes unconnected the water from your sunroof will go INTO the TRUNK and not out through the drain tube behind the wheel. The FRONT Draintubes follow a similar path down the FRONT windshield pillars and behind the front interior panels,, if they become "disconnected"
( VERY LIKLEY ) you will get WET CARPET and a LOT of water UNDER the drivers and passengers floor,, it will cause your electrical system to act like it is "possessed",,the DIC will go randomly crazy,, interior lights will go on and off,, doors will randomly lock and unlock, windows will go up and down by themselves ETC !!!
So while you are checking things in your trunk,,,, peel back the carpet liner just above each wheelwell find a grey/black plastic tube running down behind the rear tire wheelwell and look for that plastic tube to rubber hose connection... have someone lay a hose on your sunroof, flood it and see if the water is comming from that connection,, it is not hard to get to or see in the trunk area once you pull back the carpet liner...
Hope this helps,,, I know all the people here helped me in finding my leaks !!!
