I'm trying to fix a problem with the trunk on my 1989 Taurus GL. My first
attempt was to replace what appeared to be a worn out trunk lid gasket.
Since I had no success with that I brought the car to my mechanic and he
told me that the rear window / gasket was the problem.
When I brought the car to the glass shop the guy gave it a quick visual
inspection and emphatically stated that the window was fine and that the
leak was coming from the body seams around the edge of the trunk. He
maintained that they weren't factory seams and that's why they failed. I
know for a fact that this vehicle's body was never damaged or repaired. If I
believe what the glass guy says, then that means that the dealer pulled a
fast one, but that's highly unlikely. In any event, it's not going to solve
My next thought is to try a body shop as a last resort. Everybody seems to
be pointing fingers elsewhere. So, are these vehicles known for this
specific type of problem? Has anyone else in the group had a similar
experience? If so, what was the fix? Thanks in advance to anyone who posts a
