Rear trunk water leak

We have had some pretty heavy downpour the past few days down here in South Florida. I just came out this morning and opened the trunk to my 11' 2LT coupe and found a water puddle sitting on top of the Camaro mat. I am unsure as to where the leak could be coming from. It also got the carpet wet underneath it as well. Some of it had evaporated - however the water stain on the mat seems to be larger than the exposed water puddle which leads me to believe this was a rather large leak. Any one else have this problem?

It is unlickly it came in around the trunk to body gasket since it is so high, I have heard that a loose fastener under the rear spoiler on the trunk can allow water to seep under the mountings and leak inside.

Nothing common... No bulletins from GM that I can find.. It would be under warranty, I would have the GM dealer just do a diagnostic, they can check for water leaks.. shouldn't be too hard to let water run on it and fold the seat down to see where it comes in at.

Hello RS_2LT_SummitWhite11,

So sorry for that surprise in your vehicle, thatís not something we would like waiting for you before you take off. Have you had the chance to take it to a dealer by any chance? If not, I recommend doing so. If you like I can assist you here. I would need some information from you to get started so just let me know if I can help.

I had the same issue but it was from the sunroof drain lines coming apart inside the trunk. I had to wire tie them together to stop them from separating. If you have a sunroof look at the drain lines.

I have a sunroof, where am I looking for these drain lines?

Pop the trunk look up inside the left and right side you will see two plastic hoses on both sides. You kinda have to stick your head inside of the trunk. Mine were easy to see cause they were separated.

This might help.
I took this picture during the heads up display install. The drain holes are the little rubber grommets in the trunk area. The water drains out behind the tail lights.
