do you mean leaks into trunk, or leaks into the taillight??

Should have been clearer. The water is running into the trunk.

remove taillight assembly, there are bolts behind it inside the trunk if the gasket seems ok, apply a bead of sealant on the perimeter and reinstall

OK. Thanks. Just wondering if there is any way to remove just the lens cover from the outside of the vehicle w/out taking out the entire assembly.

if you try to split the t-lite assembly you probably end up breaking it

This is what my husband was afraid of. Thank you so much for taking time to respond. The Echo has been a great little car except for this problem.
