    Was the car parked flat or on a hill?

    Start by inspecting your hatch and T-top seals for tears or being dried out and crispy.

    Then it is likely an issue higher up. You'll want to locate the drains and make sure that they are not clogged.

    Without looking, I honestly do not know. I would guess that there may be a set up under the T-tops and another set down in the low part of the bottom hatch lip. Look for any holes around the perimeter of the T-tops and hatch.

    You have to have a certain number of posts and be a member for a certain number of days -- it is either 10/10 or 15/15. The site security settings were upped a while back due to a boatload of spammers. Once you hit the minimum, you can then upload the pics from your computer to a free photo sharing site like Photobucket. After that, simply copy and paste the [IMG] code for the pic into your post on here.

    I had a leak in the seam below the tailights that was filling up the space beneath that little cubby on the driver's side rear (opposite of spare tire well). It got moldy and started to stink. I found the leak by putting my twelve year old in the trunk and sprayed the car with water till she found the leak.

    I have found the T-Top seals are the first to go. Not too expensive to replace and easy to do.

    For weatherstripping silicone diver's grease is your friend. $8 for a jar on the net, rejuvenates rubber really well.

    Water should drain out by the taillights at the end of the trough.

    Your drain is covered by a black piece with one clip at the end of the trough near the top of the taillight.

    Remove this piece and flush it with your hose as you probably have leaves and stuff in there.
