That's OK. I am trying to visualize water spraying up into the rear hatch. If there is a body plug in the spare tire area, you can remove it to drain the water.

If they used a silicone sealer along the seam, that will work, but, what they probably need to do is weld the seam. It sounds like they know where the leak is and that they need to do a proper repair.

Please escalate to the Ford Rep on the forum. This should be a relatively easy repair.
