96 Buick Park Avenue with a leaking trunk

I have a 1996 Buick Park Avenue. Just bought it. It was a Florida car with no rust, very clean. It rained yesterday and when I opened the trunk, the carpet was soaking wet and there was a bunch of water in the trunk. Has this happened to anyone else, is this a common problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Thumbs up water leak

best thing to do is water test rear taillights ,trunk gasket,body seams behind lites with soapy water and air, or removetrunk interior, and backseat have a helper pure water fron gardenhose (low presser) starting at tail lites and working up in the meantime you get in back seat area with a flashlite and see were it is coming from good luck PS when moving hose up from starting point go slowly every minute or so

Trunk leaking

Another method is to put someone in the trunk with a flashlight and get out the hose. Don't slam the lid as it is hard on ear drums. RW

Does it leak in even when the car is not moving?, to rule out tires spraying water up from below?
