Wet cargo area (wagon)

Yesterday rained cat and dogs, my wagon sat outside all day in a level area, all doors were closed tight, today found the cargo area was wet, not damp, wet. The water is creeping from the rear pasanger side because I have a factory cargo area tray and is bone dry. Where is if from??

Ruling has been the upper body seam. Where the roof meets the upper half of the quarter panel. I guess people have had issues with the seam glue.

Should be a thread a few pages ago that has some good links to pictures and such.

Get down and dirty and get in there with a flashlight with it closed and have a friend put water all over it with a hose while you look for the leak. Seal it with some silicon and your good to go.

My wagon also leaks in the back area. The first time it leaked in on the drivers side of the hatch somewhere and made the carpet wet along the side all the way up to the back seat. Now it seems to leak in the middle and fills the plastic 'tray' area where the latch for the hatch sticks up.
