Mind you, it may not solve the problem, but it kept the inside dry.
Those are the trunk lid bumper stops and they keep you from crushing your latch and locking mechanism. You'll be ok if you take it easy closing your trunk but you smash down on it something will break?

Default Water leaks

I had a leak in my trunk on my 2000 ssei and water filled the rear decklid reflector. I thought about adding some goldfish for the effect but instead removed the reflector, emptied it out and re-sealed the 2 vent holes to get rid of the water. I'm now seeing condensation starting to show up inside again. Any remedies?

Hey!

Im new here... a single woman with a 2000 SLE... and Im not all that outgoing or demanding... my Bonne has had some leakage in the trunk area since I bought it... they have yet to fix it properly. In the mean time I have a new(er) leakage problem... the drivers side floor is always wet... not just damp, but wet! Last fall when we had torrential rains in this area, I found a puddle on the back seat passenger side floor!

Its frustrating dealing with the dealership. I think I'll print your suggestions and take them to the garage with me... maybe THIS time they will fix them right!

Maybe I missed it, but someone mentioned having water on the backseat floor... did they find what caused that?

Thanx in advance for any help and suggestions! Glad I found your place!
