    2000 WS-6 rear hatch leaking at spoiler?

    My car was always garaged and has only 32K on it (24k less than 6 months ago) and was never driven in the rain. I now, against my will, have to use it as a daily driver for a little while. I've noticed that when it rains which it does in Seattle on occasion, that when I open the hatch, water comes leaking out of the plastic on the under side of the hatch on the right side, from a small hole, by the hatch shock mount IIRC. The real bitch of it is that it leaks directly into the speaker mounted below this area.

    I know some have stated the glass is leaking or the weatherstripping, but my ride is still very low miles and has not been exposed to weather or sun for a long time (in about 10 years, I only put 5k on it), so I doubt wx stripping or glass seal is an issue. I'm thinking there may be a leak where the spoiler mounts to the lid.

    Ideas, suggestions, experience with this issue? Thanks

    Take the plastic off so you can see better. Crawl inside the car and have someone spray the area with a hose. You should be able to see where the water is leaking in through.
    It's on jackstands.
