Default Water Loves My Trunks

Was installing some 6x9'* into my Grand Prix, and I pulled up the carpet where the spare tire is, and I see it is slightly wet, tomorrow I am going to take the spare out and see if there is a bit of water down under the spare.
What is it with my cars and water? :/
I am guessing it is the trunk seal, or maybe from where the spoiler is attached.
Not totally sure though, I know seeing water in there made me feel cursed, lol
Anybody with a Grand Prix ever had their trunk get wet as well?
Looks like it is mainly on the right side, a bit behind where the tail light is, considering the area the spoiler is my first guess..

If it was something like this I'd not mind at all!



I just cannot believe my lack of luck with water, stupid water always taking the path of the least resistance, lazy water!!
I am also a little angry that I had to remove my whole back seat, and four trim panels just to get the cover out of the way so I could remove my old 6x9'*
It was simple to swap speakers in my Park Ave!

You aren't kidding!
Been too humid and rainy, or else I'd have checked out the spoiler already...

Is this a GM trend? I guess the hose water tests are now again required with the GP.
Hopefully some poly sealant will cure the leak.
Best for you to find it now instead of fall/winter tho.
Hopefully fix is an easy one, good Luck finding source William.
