GBPackFan Well before my driver's side window regulator failed and I had to tape up my window to keep it from falling or from rain getting in, I had started seeing a lot of moisture build up in the hatch are too. I don't have the associated moldy smells. My car had got broken into, and they were stripping out the interior when I woke up/ found out and they took off with the whole interior from the dash back minus the center console and 1.75 seats. They were in process of taking out the driver's seat when I came out with my little friend.. One look at what was in my hand and them and my interior was gone. So I tend to see puddles of water accumulating under my spare and in the indents in the body interior sheet metal. Even the area were the rear seat once resided gets small puddles. I've wondered where it comes from, since I siliconed all the bolt holes from the seat brackets; those go straight to the outside under carriage. I still get moisture though. I'll have to look into siliconing some body joints and some foam washers on the taillight bolt holes.

smallblockfever GarytheSnail I have the same problem that I've been working on with the body panels AND the tail lights leaking. RTV silicone is doing the trick for now, I think I just have to hit them again because I didn't let them dry in time before it stormed again. Aim to just seal every body panel joint you can see, be liberal

svtf2k3 At the top of the hatch where the hinges are. The first pictures show it in relation to the hinges. I have the weather strip pulled back.

Update on the leak...attention hatchback owners

Well the leak, it turns out, is not from the tail lights. Rather it is from the seams on the actual car body panels. Needless to say I am going to the dealership with this and hopefully get some of my moldy panels replaced. Here are some pics.
