Default How to fix a Wet trunk in 92 Honda Accord

We have a low mileage '92 Honda Accord that is in great shape except rain
gets into the trunk...... and we live in rainy Seattle!

Are there any suggestions for fixing this?
Should I pull the existing rubber seal and replace it?

Are there other ways to approach this?

Thanks in advance

Dunc

I have not been able to ID the specific location.

I assume that it is somewhere on the top part of the trunk lid. It seems to
accumulate on the passenger side of the trunk

i had the same problem with my 91 civic turns out the water collected on the
one side as it is on the 92 accord. i pulld the entire thing apart all the
lights off the gaskets between the car and the lights and resealed them with
fastgasket and put the original gasket back in place to ensure that it would
work and havent had a problem since.

You can replace the rubber seal or try some silicon on there. Where exactly
is it leaking from?

Place a dry newspaper and try to hose your trunk. See where the water is
coming from.

Usually the leak occur at the break lights. My nissan had a leaking problem
so I found some old/cheap break lights and replaced them. I would have to
see the damage in order to give you more appropriate advice but your options
are replacing the whole assempy, as is the case with the break lights,
replacing the rubber seal, as is the case of break lights and trunk
inner-edges, or siliconing the holes if you can do it without outside
visibility (i.e. it'd look ugly if you siliconed a visible location).
