My car had the same problem... one day i opened the trunk up and realized the mat was soaking wet, i took it off and sure enough the whole spare tire compartment was filled with water.. i unplugged the the plastic piece on the bottom and let the water drained out. After examining the car i noticed that a plastic pieces that holds the taillights in place was missing on the right side, went to ford bought the part put it on and it still did it.. all my seals were good.. i ended up replacing my taillight with aftermarket ones and after that i havent had any issues. another problem that i thought of was water coming from underneath from the wheel well. mine are shot, they are starting to break off so i put mudflaps on the back and that might of helped to, but being January now and me living in snowy environments i have not had a problem since i replaced the lights and mudflaps in fall.
