My leak is in the right rear of hatch. I think it may be the hole where the wing nut goes through. I put some RTV on it yesterday. My aftermarket lights use foam rubber to seal the hole instead of just plain rubber.

There are at least 4/5 places behind the tail lights that are potential water leak points......that includes the rubber seal around the wire harness. I checked my tail lights in the summer....before re-installing them I packed the areas with silicone grease.

I will probably add a rubber seal around the inside edges of each tail light next spring. I also added a water alarm system down by the spare tire (that's where the water will wind up). Home Depot $10.

The edges of the plastic cowl don't sit tight against the wind-shield. There's a foam gasket on the thing that's supposed to do the sealing. Mine was ripped up... I replaced it with a rubber weather-strip/gasket from Home Depot. For a temporary fix you could use a piece of duct tape over the edge of the cowl onto the wind-shield.
