I have a leak in the boot (trunk) or my car.
While the weather seal isn't great it doesn't seem to be the cause and the rear window was recently removed for some bodywork so I doubt it's that.

Wheel Tire Car Automotive tire Automotive lighting

Automotive tire Hood Motor vehicle Vehicle door Bumper

Coil Electrical wiring Cable Gas Auto part


This mainly happens when the car is facing downhill. I'm pretty damn sick of it and mechanics have been little to no help.

Any ideas?

Sunroof drains, or they didn't get the back window sealed properly at the body shop. Did you notice any leaks prior to the rear window being reinstalled?

Blow out all your sun roof drains first and test to see if there is any leaks after that.
Also you can see one of those drains in the pictures you provided.

It looks like the rust holes are hidden under the window trim, but if that's the case I'm surprised there aren't bubbles in the paint surrounding the trim. I'd remove the trim and inspect what's underneath.

aahhh...welcome to my year long journey...i was lucky i guess the car is parked with no insurance outside,nobody needs it so i could take things apart and wait for rain. long story short i think is a seam up in the rear window area so inaccessible. i dont think its window trim,the trim on the roof (i removed it and tried to seal) i sealed, dried, wiped for MONTHS..on the outside,inside....a friend said drill 2 holes in the lowest part (behind the rear wheels)...i did....it is NOT OPTIMUM...but honestly the water doesnt collect anymore. i even put some plastic so the carpet never gets wet anymore, the water runs underneath....my car was rearended early in its life...that MAY play a factor...your the second person Ive seen with my EXACT problem...its NOT the sunroof drains..and its NOT anything to do with the trunk area in the picture, i sealed and sealed that area ...the water is entering higher i think
