Ok so i got the leaky trunk syndrom too... but i also got the leaky passanger side cockpit. so... is it posible that the water from the trunk can migrate to the cockpit? if not... where might the water becoming from... i drilled out the plastic plug in the back seat floor so it can drain as i had about a inch of water above the carpet.

Any help would be amazing!

This is awesome. I just noticed some leakage the other day when it rained. Thanks to this, I have a remedy for it.

I've given up trying to find my leaks. I have 2 right now. They're not bad, but it's just more annoying than not.

Tail lights? or Trim? Which one?

If it's just the tail lights, can the water migrate into the cabin?

My moisture was on the roof of the trunklid, all over the trunk carpet, in the sparetire well, and also somehow migrated to the space under the rear passenger bench (which mildewed, molded, festered, and became DISGUSTING).

My thoughts are that a mere tail light leak couldn't cause all that, especially the area under the passenger bench seat.

Did you have moisture under your passenger bench? If so, that would make more sense, since the rear window trim is kinda above the rear seat area.

I wanna know so I can pinpoint mine to the trim being the cause, versus the tail lights.

I was wondering how you get the trim back on? I ask this because the clips on the side of the windshield will not stay on the trim. So my trim isnt sitting flush with the glass.

Yeah I have that same problem with mine on the top part of the glass trim. Those clips f**king suck ass. I'm pretty sure I didn't break anything when I popped all the trim off, but my top piece keeps popping off and won't stay flush.

I looked up new rear window trim and its crazy expensive. It's about $160 to get the whole setup. Lame!

Question, do you have any experience with leaky sunroofs? It seems that the drain hoses that run the water out of our sunroof travels through the interior out the trunk? Any ideas? Thanks

Has anyone tried this recently? I am hoping someone took come actualy pics of the process. I am worried about breaking the clips.

When I do it, I will take some pics and detail the process.

Thanks

I did this over the weekend, it's very easy. The clips shouldn't break, I only popped off the trim on the bottom, just past the radius on the bottom corners. There's a clip just above this point, it pops right outta the clip once you get the lower part free. I resealed mine, but its still leaking. Wasnt the fix for mine, but glad I did it anyways, the factory seals were def dried out. Good luck!!

I just did mine, too. A recommendation to anyone who attempts this. If you can't get the trim clips out, screw the screws back in, unscrew the completely, then puch them in again. I had a few that wouldn't come out. I pried one out and it kind of damaged the metal part on the body of the car. The other two I had trouble with that wouldn't come out even though I pushed the screw in, I tightened the screws again, unscrewed them, then pushed it back down. Both finally let go and I was able to get them out.

The correct way to remove the clips is to back the screw almost completely out, then push (not screw) it down, this retracts the plastic barbs that hold it in the car), while pushing down on the screw, lift the trim and the clip should slide out. I used some closed cell foam (with adhesive on one side) to make replacement gaskets so it can be easily disassembled again if necessary. When putting the clips back in, push the clips and the screw down, then while holding the clip down, tighten the screw. Make sure the clip is seated well. Using a heat gun to soften the rubber helps get it out of the way and prevents cracking when accessing the screws.

Other potential leak sources not noted previously are the plastic nuts and gasket for the quarter vent, the seam for the gas filler pocket to quarter panel (just fixed both today on my wife's LX). I also recently fixed a leak into the passenger area which was through the clips that attach the chrome strip just above the doors.j On 90-91, there is a continuous rubber strip under the chrome, and an individual small gasket at each clip. One or two of the clips on my 90 weren't engaged well after reinstalling after paint, and the water was leaking down inside the A pillar to under the carpet.

Hi!

Sorry to bump this thread again. I have no idea how to remove the back trim. Mines doesnt have the screws. When I open the trunk, the middle part of the trim is just empty.

Have no idea where/how to start.

Thanks
