Default Water in the Trunk-1995 Camry

After a day of driving in the rain, I noticed that the trunk well which
holds the spare had an inch of water in it! Could not tell where it was
coming in at all, after much searching. Anyone have any similar issues or
solutions?

Check the seal where the trunk lid meets the body for damage or debris
buildup. Pull out the spare, look for missing or damaged rubber plugs
frame or rust holes. See if water is coming down from the rear window
then inside the trunk and down into well. With this much water there
may be a water stain trail to follow from the tire well to the source
of the leak. Read the TN post at the bottom of this page.

Does that model have the reflect accross the back? There was a TSP on that
leaking and how to repair it (worked for my '93) -- check ALLDAT.com

Does it have a sunroof? The drain lines run through the sides of the
trunk and sometimes come loose and fill up the nooks where the tools
are kept. Otherwise you have a bad seal.

We had the same problem with our '95. The dealer said it was
a seal issue, and they could either try sealant or a new seal.
The first ($60) fix failed, the second ($300) actually solved the
problem. Sorry, but I don't have any more specific info.

===============
First place to check is the seal that runs around the trunk opening.
Rain water from the rear window is channeled in the trough fromed by
this seal, to driect water around the trunk opening and out the back.
Any split or tear in the rubber would allow water to settle in the low
spot - the spare tire wiell.
Sometimes loading luggage into the trunk by sliding it instead of
lifting it over the edge will damage this seal.

Get in the trunk.

Don't think about the guy that got the ride in the trunk in Jackie
Brown.

look for light leaks.

Had that problem in my '85 Camry. Took me a while to find it, but one of my
taillights had a cracked lens. The taillight would collect about an inch of
water before it spilled over and collected in the spare tire well. There
had to have been three or four inches of water in the well (it rains a lot
in Western Oregon).

Got a new lens from a junkyard for $10, and no more leaks.
