water in trunk lid

Asked by Feb 05, 2010 at 05:10 PM about the 2006 Cadillac CTS Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I washed car about a week ago, it stays in garage mostly. Today I opened trunk lid and I could hear a significant amount of water sloshing around, and some of it running out into trunk.I removed two rubber plugs on the bottom outboard side of lid and water ran out. Has anyone else noticed a similar problem?

Thanks
Barry

I had that problem. How do you remove the two rubber? I couldn't do it.

2009 CTS-V Garaged since day 1. Recently moved so it was out for a month and wasn't smelling nice and new anymore. Upon further inspection I found that the spare tire well which only houses the pump was completely filled with water. I pulled the panel down where the battery is (the whole side panel) and found a green water flow tube (coming from above and towards the inner wheel well) that was supposed to be inserted into a slot of a rubber boot going through the inner wheel well. This has always been my achilles heel when it comes to GM, good and even great product gets a bad reputation due to the extremely horrid build quality thanks to those lazy, over paid, no work ethic Union Workers.

I've got a 2009 CTS4...bought it used about 2 months ago and ran into the same problem (water getting "trapped" inside trunk...when trunk opens, water flows out from between trunk and interior carpet panel). I still need to bring the car in for evaluation, however, I believe the water is coming into the trunk via the chrome trim that sits atop the license plate. When I had the trunk opened, I noticed that the two screws that fasten that chrome piece were horribly rusted.
