No explanation on how water might've gotten into your trunk, but that drain tube just pulls straight up and out. Not sure if you did from your message, but I'd make sure the drain tube isn't clogged with anything.

Perhaps double check your trunk's weather stripping for damage? That would create a point for water to enter.

I did check nothing is clogged I got ther water hose and put it inside the hole and water flowed with no problem. And checked all around and no leaks from there. It's just odd because its only there and it's all around the drain tube

I did check the hose that runs thru the back but no leaks. I haven't noticed it been getting wet. But it still wet i do want to remove the drain hose to dry it completely that way mold doesn't form.any one know how?

Is the pouch lined up correctly? I noticed that the little foam pieces in my pouch weren't where they were supposed to be, so I took them out. It took me a couple of weeks to get time to get them back in. During that time my trunk took on water, but since replacing them, there's been no water in the trunk.

The drain hose? You remove it by pulling on it, no surprises here.

My 08 had those plastic things that keep the drains open but my 06 does not. I didn;t even know they existed till I go the 08. I do have a water problem in the 06 but it's the trunk lining that gets soaked. still looking into the problem.

I had water in my trunk as well and I tracked it down to the flexible tube that the wiring runs through to the trunk lid. I popped it out of the bottom plate and added a little silicone. Haven't had an issue since.

Just wanted to make sure i was going to do it right dont want o yank it and then break it. Just like changing the taillight bulb its easy but just have to use a bit force to yank it out. Im about to check it right now as for the triangle that s rusted can that be removed? The reason why is because i want to clean it and remove the rust but if i remove it will make things a lot easier.

Well I was able to remove the hose i ddi break the little plastic that is attacched to it. But i dont seem to notice any leaks that are coming from the inside or anything i did notice some just on a bolt and towards the right side of the bolt its a bit rusted. Carpet is still wet but it takes forever to dry so im doing to dry it with a blower. Is it possible that its coming from the bottom?

I'm leaning toward your front trunk lid seal. I guess it's possible to come up from the bottom, but I don't think it's very likely to be. Highly unlikely that road splash would be that concentrated to one area (and get past all the obstacles that would prevent it from coming up into the trunk.)

But I believe you said you used a hose and couldn't duplicate it, right? That may be because the wind pressure while driving is opening up the seal? Just some thoughts.

COOL!

That is a great tip. I need to add that to my list of Kappa maintenance hints.

Thanks.

How is the OLSEN Roadster doing? You really need to put a picture of the OLSEN badge in your sig. :thumbs:

Have you considered applying some clear silicone to the front trunk seal to eliminate that as the source? Close the trunk, apply a bead of clear silicone (it will come off easily when the test is done), let it set up, then flood the area and let it sit for a few minutes. Then pop the trunk and see if you got any water inside. If no, then you probably have found the source of your issue.

Could be that. its only on the passenger side and the rusted part. Its only on that triangle not on the other. Nope chickenwire i put the hose in at full pressure and nothing and also did it to the triangle and no leaks of water coming out. I will try that out rob see if that works. Since the day i noticed it and cleaned it i dont think water has commend in. because it hasn't been wet just what was there before.
