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.
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 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?
So quick update- they think it is the seal and have ordered a replacement for it. Should be done by Friday.Let us know Scoob, what a bummer. Good solution RyansQuick, have to remember that.

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...
Maybe my leak is just an isolated incident.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.
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.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

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