Leaking gaskets around the tail lights can allow water entry into the tail light assembly. New gaskets should fix this concern.

Trunk-lid-mounted tail light assemblies fill with water to a depth of 1-1/2 inch in wet weather. Water pours into trunk when lid is opened. Trunk is wet. Spare wheel well is half-full of water. Replaced foam rubber gaskets between tail light assemblies and trunk lid, but this had no effect. I can't see where the water is getting in.

I noticed quite a bit of condensation in my right tail light. When I opened the trunk, water would pour out of the same side of the inner trunk. I did not think much of it, thinking it couldn't cause too many problems, but a while later, I opened my trunk and discovered massive amounts of mold forming. I'm thinking it is related to leaking gaskets, but I'm not sure as I am unfamiliar with this issue.
Yep, same thing, I haven't fixed it

When it rains the inside of my trunk gets soaked. And the inside of my tail lights on the passenger side.
