Mystery: Trunk Vent leak 2014 Avalon Hybrid

Asked by May 23, 2018 at 10:58 AM about the 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a leak in the TRUNK that I have narrowed down to the driver's side
vent over the wheel well. With the Trunk lid closed, I poured water over the
rear window and I can see water coming out of the vent. The Mystery is in
that I do not understand what the entry point is for the water, and how the
water can make it's way from the rear window seals (or trunk seals) into that
vent. It just seems like such an unlikely water flow path. If anyone can advise
on where the most likely water entry point is and how the heck the water
makes it's way into the vent, PLEASE PLEASE comment.

Any updates? I just found this EXACT situation on my 2014 Limited. How is the water getting their all of a sudden and how do we stop it?!

I had the same problem and noticed that the edges of the plastic vent were not sealed properly. The water was getting in between the metal trunk liner and the edge of the plastic vent. I used some roof sealant and that worked for about a year... Today I noticed that there is water in the trunk again. If anyone has found a long-term solution, please let us know.
