Take your spare tire cover off and see if there is water in the spare tire well. If so, take out the rubber grommet plug in the bottom of the spare well to drain the water. The water is coming from your tail light seals or trunk deck seal. When you hit the brakes the water rolls up out of the spare deck and soaks the bottom of the rear seats....heard of this happening 2 other times.

Thats just a temp fix, remember that. If you dont get your leaks fixed you are going to have rust out sooner or later. Probably right through one of the rear quarter panels. Happened to me.

Defiantly a water leak. Also check the tubes for the sun roof, make sure they are not clogged. I've seen leaves and stuff packed at the drain holes.

Tell your friends that the backseat isnt a bathroom!!! :rofl:

But yea I had the same issue and I found out that the rubberseal around the sunroof window was slightly worn and it was allowing water to run down. So I replaced that and also I was told as a backup to take out the two plugs under the spare tire so that if it still continues that the water wont build up and splash into your rear seat. Removing the 2 plugs will allow any water getting into your rear trunk of your car to fall out from the 2 holes from where the plugs once were at.

When I had that issue I ended up having a pond build up under my spare and everytime I braked the wave of water basically flowed towards the backseat and soaked up and it started to stink too!!!

Ask Honda4life for tips bc he was the one I msged and called for help!!!
He even helped me with removing the rearseat to dry and clean up!!!
