Please help me!! My 1989SEC has a water leak. Every time it rains, the "pockets" of the trunk get wet. I took it to my mechanic, who unclogged the seal, but the left and right pockets are still getting wet. The rest of the trunk is dry as a camels back. I had to place heavy towles into the pockets to soak up the water. The trunk smells like wet a dog. Any ideas? I'm confused!! The trunk itself does not get wet, but the side pockets are soaked. Thanks for your pending help in this matter, Guy.

Check the seals around the tail lights, they can leak. Get in the trunk and close it and have a close friend (one that won't leave you in the trunk!) hose down the car to find the leak. Could be a split seal for the trunk lid too.
Also, I found that using a car cover keeps the majority of the water out of the car. Instead of lots of water in the trunk, a car cover will sluice off the majority and you'll end up with much less in the trunk until you fix it. Go buy a plastic container at the local grocery store for the wet cover when you put it in the trunk. I found one about 16" x 22" x 6" that works just fine to hold a wet car cover.
