    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I have the same problem too. Just took a road trip to Florida. I drove through a rain storm for about 5 hours. I bought this car used so I dont know if it has happened before. On the service sheet it says:

    Aligned flange joints at rear compartment door are. Sealed flange.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I have a 2005 srx and have found this to be a very common problem, my factory warranty is expired but gm/cadillac is fixing this because of 2 plugs that they never installed. The problem surprisingly is coming up from underneath the car. It has to do with rear a/c plugs and water acually comes up from the road and sits in the spare tire well. I would be willing to bet that you do not have 3rd row seating (me neither). If not they were supposed to plug the back air vents drains and they never did. I also have a leak in the moonroof that I am payin out of pocket for. As soon as these 2 problems are fixed Im purchasing an extended warranty. Does anyone have any companies to recommend?

    Do you have a parts number for those plugs on an invoice? I would like my dealer to check it out and the specifity of a parts number would reflect my credibility on this issue. Also if you plug the drains, where does the water go that the drain is DESIGNED to drain go?
    Thanks

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I picked up my car yesterday from dealer. they said they plugged the ac drains so that the jack compartment would not get anymore water. However this morning on my way to work I looked n the back and the compartment was still dry(heavy rain last night). Their is still a leak between the rear window and side window(passenger side). They had also "fixed" my roof moulds and reattached the stripping, which they said would solve this problem. YET surprise surprise, soaked!!! Im bringing the car back in a few minutes and i hope to find this problem too. Also LOUISN i will get the parts number for those plugs. (it does not have them on my sheet) Im guessing from earlier messages this has to do with the draining tubes or something.

    Concur with that - bought my '08 (3rd row seats w/ rear a/c) in November with 25k miles. Was dry the first few times I checked this area until 2 days ago I checked and there was an inch of H20 there. I'll be starting the process too.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    Well mine was dry when I first read this thead a few years ago. We've had alot of rain the past few weeks.... I was doing something else when I found lake SRX. I guess it's a good thing, I still have 500 miles on the 4/50 before the CPO takes over.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I picked-up our new SRX from the dealer about a week ago. Noticed water in jack compartment when I started to get aquainted with the car. Looking at the posts I thought this was going to take some time to fix. After lifting the carpet to dry it, I started looking for potential places for water intrusion. I pulled at the weather stripping/seal around the hatch opening, expecting it to be snug and secure. To my surprise I was able to easily pull it off without any resistance. Looking at a dry SRX at the dealer, the seal was impossible to budge, it had been glued and secured properly. So I have an appointment to replace the seal (to my satisfaction) with a new one. I will stress that it must be tight and secure before I accept it. Hope that it will fix the problem (given the absolute looseness of the weather strip/seal, it must be the problem!).

    This is where the water was leaking from on my '04. I filled the channel of the weather strip with black silicone and re-installed it- no more leaky!

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    Arrgghh! I too have this problem..Interestingly, I was sent this TSB for an issue I'm having with my center high mount stop lamp:

    #04-08-42-005A: High Mount Stop Lamp Bezel Lifting/Loose, Interfering with Roof Rear Edge When Lift Gate is Opened and/or High Mount Stop Lamp Replacement Info (replace Weatherstrip, Elongate Holes, Apply Adhesive) - (Aug 26, 2005)

    Subject:
    High Mount Stop Lamp Bezel Lifting/Loose, Interfering with Roof Rear Edge When Lift Gate is Opened and/or High Mount Stop Lamp Replacement Information (Replace Weatherstrip, Elongate Holes, Apply Adhesive)

    Models:
    2004 Cadillac SRX

    Built Prior to VIN Breakpoint 40173887

    Attention:
    The repair procedure in this bulletin must be followed when replacing the High Mount Stop Lamp Assembly.


    Maybe the replacement weatherstripping and stop lamp gaskets will help..I've got to replace/install them regardless...We'll see..

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I let the dealer re-install a new rear hatch weather seal. It looks better than the first one that was loose, but we will see. Local dealers aren't saying that they've seen the problem before, but are willing to help by ripping out the interior and checking to see where its coming from, even replacing the rear carpeting, all under warranty (new 09 SRX). I will keep an eye on th whether the rear weather seal was the problem, but expect its not over. Has anyone out there let their dealer rip open their interior to successfully find the leak? Good luck to all with this problem.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I purchased a used 2008 SRX in October and in March noticed the collection of water in the jack compartment. I thought it was from having the interior of the car washed, but it re-occurred after I dried it out. Now I realize it's due to some leak. I'm so angry. I feel like this is a well-known, well-documented problem and they had years to fix the design to avoid it. I feel ripped off.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    Just bought a CPO 2009 SRX. The jack compartment was wet when I opened it for the first time. Had driven in torrential rain and power washed car once.

    The weatherstripping was loose along the bottom of the rear hatch. I removed it, filled the split generously with black silicone sealant, and replaced it.

    Now dry as a bone, even after driving in a downpour on the highway.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    My wife & I should feel fortunate with our 09 SRX, V6 AWD. I checked this week after having heavy rains in the North East. I have not seen any water in the jack area or surrounding carpeting. Maybe GM filxed this prior to the 09 model year.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I had standing water in my '05 SRX with rear air and I read on this site that the liftgate hatch gasket was improperly installed (backing tape from adhesive never removed) and this turned out to be the cause of the problem on on mine. You could see where the water was getting around the gasket between the body and the gasket itself (not the liftgate and gasket) It was very wet. I replaced the gasket with a new one, dried out my jack compartment with some fans, and it has been bone dry since, FWIW. And in New England, this has been the wettest stretch of weather we have had in some time. I think the gasket was around $60.00, and was really simple to install.
