I searched the forum and the home page info before I posted this the first time, and again, and again and I've found nothing. And my first post got closed without offering any help except to try the search and refer to the TSB. What TSB thanks?


So still interested in any help regarding likely water leak sources into the rear spare tire well from somewhere other than the rear tailgate/hatch weather strip.

Thanks

So how do you KNOW it isnt the weather strip around the tailgate? Because you're wrong in thinking that just because it "looks" ok, it doesnt need adjusting.
And here are a couple of threads that came right up when I searched. Weird.....

We dont hold hands here. We will however help those that at least make the effort to help themselves.
So yes it is indeed 99% the hatch seal, and f you bother to search and read the results, you'll see how to remedy it.
Posting up the same stuff all the time is a waste of resources and time on our part. So either read through the search results (just like searching "TSB") or dont. But we wont be repeatedly making the same posts about stuff that has already been beaten to death.

The TSB was the seal, and bending the lip to ensure it was leak free.
But a search would have given all possible causes either way.

Fixed mine yesterday. The sunroof drain hose on the left side c pillar had shrunk (shortened) and partly pulled out of the rubber boot that goes through the rear fender well. so it leaked down to the front corner of the rear wheel arch and accumulated in the well. I wound up splicing a new section of hose to make the connection good again.

Thanks to leftlanetruckin for posting the links to previous posts. I had less luck on the post search. Appreciate the help.
