Leaking rear window trim

Recommended Posts

I've been battling a water leak which have ended up with the sides in the trunk collecting water easily when it rains. I finally narrowed it down to the rear window trim in which the plastic mounts that the trim is screwed into seems to have been either cracked or otherwise defect as I have found water drops hanging from the few that I can see from the inside having removed the rear seat. I also feel moisture on the metal below those mounts, which I guess leads down to the sides where the water gathers.

Would these need replacing or would it just make due with some sealant? I have not been able to find any rust.

I also suspect that there might be coming in from the tail lights as well but this is something that I'm still investigating.

It's not the trim. The clue is in the name. Trim is trim, not a water seal.

It will be the rear window seal or the boot seal (if it's not actually rust, or a broken seal in the welding seam sealer).
