hi - I have a 2001 taurus/sable.
I have now found the source of the water leaking into my trunk, but I
don't understand it.
To see the leak, you need to pull the felt trunk fabric off of the
inside overhead in the trunk (exposing the speakers). If I pour water
into either of the roof seams where they intersect with the rear
window, I can see a stream of water on the inside overhead area of the
trunk. This is made up of two pieces of metal welded together for
strength that form a channel. The water gets in this channel and
drains through several small holes into the trunk. These look like
factory holes, because it looks like they are very uniform and
painted. Maybe used to hang the parts on wire when they were painted?
It seems like I need to remove the rear window to see why water is
getting down into that channel rather than flowing around the trunk
Anyone familiar with this? I'm thinking of removing the rear window,
if it seems like that is the problem. If you have any tips on removing
the window, I'd appreciate it.
The other option is to caulk, but I feel that may be more of a band-
aid than an acatual fix.
