Asked by Dec 09, 2011 at 09:40 AM about the 1998 Ford Contour 4 Dr GL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After a heavy rain the trunk lid is getting water in it.  Lift up the lid and water drips out of the lid and tail lamps into the trunk.  Water is also getting inside the tail lamps and shorting out bulbs.

Not getting into trunk, getting into the tail lamp assembly which is set into the trunk lid. The lid weatherstrip is fine. Bizarre...
