I noticed that the last two times it rained in Houston, I had water spots in my trunk. The first time, I thought it was the hatchback dripping from the outside as I opened it.

After the second time this afternoon, I ran a hose over the back and sure enough, drops started dripping in my driver side trunk just by the speaker.

Now, here is the interesting part- the black rubber seal is intact around the rear but where the rear light's black plastic panel meet the metal panel- there is a wide opening on both sides. I assume it isn't completely sealed in order to open the plastic to change out the rear lights.

This seems like the only place water could have gotten in.

So, I am calling my dealer tomorrow to have them check it out (my Crosstour is only 3 weeks old). I'd like to see if anyone else has noticed any leaks or if their Crosstour has these openings.

dry everything and put baby powder on the seals, then shut it gently. Spray it with water and wait for the leak. Let it dry. When you open the hatch, the baby powder will show where the leak came from.

Let us know Scoob, what a bummer. Good solution RyansQuick, have to remember that.

I have noticed that when I open the lift gate, any water on the gate and/or glass pours into to the top of the rear frame and rushes down along the side channels. When it hits those tail light assemblies, it tends to splash. Are you sure it's leaking or is it only splashing in while the gate is open?

I thought about that too, but I actually saw water dripping from the liner and worse- from the driver side speaker inside the trunk after spraying it with water yesterday while the hatch was closed.

I called the dealer and will drop it off tomorrow morning.

I didn't have time for the baby powder trick today since it's been a long Monday...

So quick update- they think it is the seal and have ordered a replacement for it. Should be done by Friday.

I can't wait to get my CT back, since the Civic they gave just doesnt feel the same.:rolleyes:

Scoob,
Driver side speaker in the trunk? I have a subwoofer on the right side but no regular speakers back there. What model do you have?

I washed the CT yesterday, really laid the water on the hatch. No leaks. Interested to see what the dealer finds. Good luck.

Maybe my leak is just an isolated incident.

Maybe what I see isnt a speaker then...

At the back of the trunk, near the hatch are two metal vents that looks like speakers- maybe they are air intake vents?
If so, what a noob I am:eek:

Ahh, I found what you're talking about, Scoob......look like speaker grills about 6x6 under the back seat release handles by the hatch and facing down.

Not sure what those are (yet) will investigate later, could be vents of some kind,
but the sub-woofer is on the right side (passenger) not too much further in than the grill you mentioned and measure about 8x10 and is side facing.

No worries man.......until we explore every inch of these cars we're all noobs ......:D

Not a noob Scoob, I kept looking for speakers after I already accounted for all 7 of them. Look, a squirrel!

Water leak in trunk

I just noticed the same leak in the back of my 2010, but mine is on the passenger side. Did the replacement seal fix the problem?

So quick update- they think it is the seal and have ordered a replacement for it. Should be done by Friday.

Getting wate in the trunk area, cannot find the source, by reading on the forum some have said the seal is the problem, but looking at mine everything looks fine. I cannot even locate any damp places inside the trunk area. Any ideas? Taking it to the dealer next weekend to have them fix issue.

Sorry I didn't post the fix ... the leak in mine was caused by the rear windshield washer supply hose. There is a rubber grommet outside the weather seal - upper passenger side when you lift the hatch - the hose comes through the metal and the grommet is the seal. Mine had come loose, causing the leak. Easy fix.
