Water leaks in trunk and passenger floorboard

Recommended Posts

Question about water leaks. My TC has had a water leak off and on in the trunk for years. We’ve tried to run a garden hose around the outside of trunk to figure out where the leak is coming in, but can’t locate it. The same thing is happening on the passenger side footwell area. The whole carpet area under the passenger floormat gets soaked and I can’t figure out where it’s leaking in there either. Have any of y’all seen this issue in our TC’s and know if there’s a typical area where the leaks occur? Would definitely appreciate some help in figuring out this issue. Thanks all!

I bet that the soft top storage well has one of the drain hoses popped off. The crap part about that is that in order to get to it to fix it, you gotta basically rip the entire rear interior out. No other way to access it. This can happen if the hose is clogged and someone tried to use air to clear it. It will pop the hose off of the little nipple underneath.

Look in the soft top well to see if the two holes in the bottom of the well are cover over before you go to the extreme of taking too many parts off of the car.  There is a depression on each side of the well with a hole in the bottom and it can collect trash as well as water.
