    Would it be prudent to place a desiccant in that area? I have some metal tin ones that can be re-activated. http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpag...eitemid=799452

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    Got the car back from the dealer today. I asked the service manager what was done to fix the water leak problem but he didn't know because they hire the work out to a guy that specializes in fixing these types of problems. They claim that they have never had a water leak problem return after this guy has fixed it. I hope that is true.

    Will the dealer cover the repair for the Water issue if the vehicle is still under the 100K GMPP warranty?

    My dealer replaced the weather strip and water tested the fix. I also ran it through a car wash. Seems OK. I am keeping the jack compartment open to get the moisture out completely... fingers crossed.

    The dealer agreed to fix my leak under the 100K GMPP...They said it was a rear washer issue?didnt sound like that would be the culprit but if it works i'll take it...We will see when I get the car back this week.

    Maybe calling it a rear washer problem was the only way he could cover under the GMPP. If it was just a leak (weatherstripping or the like), it may not be covered.

    IMHO, they all leak--but no one would know unless you had a flat and looked for the jack or read the forum and decided to look or it started to smell.. I'm going in tomorrow for the 4th or 5th time: new weatherstripping.

    I don't want to jinx myself, but my 2005 may be one in 100,000, but it doesn't leak.

    New weathestripping installed. Don't know if I'm leak free, but it sure feels more pliable than the old ones. I think the weatherstripping had been changed once already in my numerous trips to the dealer but it sure looked worn out compared to the new one. We'll see.

    I feel like I won the lottery; my '08 is 15 months old, and absolutely has not leaked - I check it once a month.
    Uh-ohh, better go out and knock on the Sappele Wood dash for luck!

    Mine is totally dry. Feb 2004 build date, Ultra view roof, no 3rd seat, no handle issues either. They built at least one properly. I'll go and touch the fake wood now.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    Mine is still dry after the fix. It has gone through a nice car wash and several hours of rain. Looks like at least they have one fix done right A trick I used to get the moisture out - remove the plastic cover over the door sill (or is that what it's called?). You just pull up and it comes off easily (remove the two little plastic thingy under the metal rings first). It creates a huge opening to the jack area. I left it open for a few days, and the thing dried up really nice. A word of caution for those who resolve to hole drilling - beware of CO from the exhaust! Plus, the real problem is not the standing water, but the moisture trapped in the insulation. Drilling holes doesn't help much in that sense.

    So what was done on yours to finally fix it? Mine has been in twice now with no luck..

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    The car was in a rain for 2 days and I got 1/2 inch standing water in the jack area. I wasn't there when they did the fix. The guy said they changed the broken weatherstrip. As someone pointed out earlier, there appears to be multiple causes for the leak. I think mine happens to be the weather stripping. I suggest you keep trying it until it's fixed, if it's under warranty. Mine was wet for a few days and I could tell the insulation was starting to smell...
