Unfortunately, you will have to remove the panel of the door, Use flathead screwdriver to pry open. It is very likely the spring fell off.

SOURCE: Water leakage into tailgate and boot

Rear hatch gasket is probably gone bad, allowing the water in. They are probably right on that call.

It is most likely a tail light sensor/switch which is located on the linkage,up higher on the back side of the brake pedal.A fuse would more likely cause more things to not work than just the brake lights.As long as the normal lights come on,such as when you turn on the running lights which include headlights,side markers etc.,it should be that switch on the back of the pedal.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg

Why does my forester roof leak?


Once source of leaks is the rubber tube that runs from the roof line to the rear hatch, and contains the rego plate light, rear window heater and locking circuits. Look at the seals under the hatch hinges. If there's nothing obvious, pull some of the internal headers to see where the water is coming from. May still be the moon roof. Water will run down any available slope.

2001 toyota sienna water leak inside rear door seal


For water leaking inside the rear door panel, I'll suggest you check and replace the black rubber/foamy seal that is part of the high-mounted-rear light assembly.
It gets weak over time and soaks water, thereby allowing water seep into the booth lining and also into the underlay of the carpet.
If you have a cracked rear-light (the one attached to the boot hatch), you may also get a leak.
Change this rubber seal/ gasket. I used an old rubber carpet to make a gasket to fit the light assembly, and it stopped the leakage.
Hope this helps.

My car was hit in the right rear quarter panel which caused damage to my trunk area but that was a couple of years ago but for the past year when ever it rains I get water in my trunk only on the right...


Remove trunk liner. Put a light dusting of baby powder down. Close trunk and wet rear of car with hose. Check for leaks. May be a tail light leaking.

My 2005 ford frestar is leaking water in the back hatch are and was wondering were it might be coming from


I had water coming into the rear storage area. Finally found where it the leak was. The plastic panel on which the license plate mounts was leaking around the panel allowing water to run down onto a little ledge area and the enter the rear storage well at the left rear corner of the storage well. I have tightened the nuts that hold the panel against the gasket and if that does not stop it, I will loosen it an put clear silicone seal around the pane. It was hard to figure out! I had to remove the rear trim to see where the leak was. Hope this might help.

Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car


My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.
