Tracing down where the water leaks in & fills 'em up will stop the recurrence of the problem,on my Sedan it was coming in through the CHMSL (brake light).

Tightening up the mounting worked for a while (hose washers under the plastic clips that mount it) - But eventually I had to seal it up with black RTV..

Don't know where the hatches leak, but that's the cause of all the corrosion....

Once they fill with water, it doesn't take long....

Luck!
