Can't seem to figure out what's causing this. Whenever the car is parked for a day or two in bad weather - rain, not snow - the hatchback gets flooded. It seems to be happening only on the right side. I have taken to putting a large bath towel rolled up in there to help, but inevitably heavy rainstorms still flood both the carpeting and down underneath in the spare tire well.

See pics below:





I thought it might be my antenna but the well below that is dry.

Remove all your plastic panel. And see where the leak coming from.

If you have a sunroof, check to see if the drainage line on the right side is connected. Just take off the little vent panel near the light off and look and see if there is a clear tube disconnected.

Well, I started a new job and have been crazy busy. Finally got to check the drain hoses over this past weekend and they both look fine. They are both attached and don't appear to be clogged in any way.

Guess I'll be taking apart the hatch to check the wing. :sadpace:

I had same problem with mine, turned out to be the spoiler mounting holes where starting to rust

Only way to find the leak is to remove all the plastics and investigate

If its only on the right side it could be leaking in from the light
Take your wing off and insulate the holes. I just used craft foam paper and it worked
