    I thought I'd check the jack area and sure enough it was wet. Only parked out side in the rain for a week. Learning alot reading this forum.

    Repeating what I said in April of '05 best have the carpet/insulation replaced. You might get it dry but you may never get the mildew smell out. Our experience with a car that was flooded and the carpet just dried out was that in about a year or so the carpet simply started falling apart.

    Had the same problem with my 05 SRX but found out it was the windshield washer fluid leaking from a disconnected hose to the back window. Jack compartment all wet and stain interior. Had to have hose reconnected by dealer

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    Just checked mine - June, 2006 production date. No H2O present - and I go through a high pressure touchless carwash A LOT.

    Just wondering...any correlation between not having the third row option and presence of water (I have the 3rd row).

    The leak is a known issue, there should be a recall but we are talking GM....

    I checked mine out by lifting up the rear sill panel.
    The surface under the panel showed signs of water running down the rear
    sill towards the jack compartment from the seal area.

    My 2005 SRX N*V8 RWD has been performing as advertised (and to my expectations) since 1/21/05 ~ 13k+ miles; had my radio unit replaced due to DIC reset to 0 & random CD shuffle; no ultraview noise, air or water leaks; no water in jack storage; had rear suspension recall checked (no action reqd); have reg service w/ synthetic oil chg ~ 4k mi periods vs
    one of my neighbors 2005 BMW 7 series with many problems/ recalls & another neighbor 2004 BMW 7 series total buy back due to "lemon";
    Suggest you may wish to try Audi, Bentley, BMW, MB, Lex, Maz, or ?? where auto assy workers need their jobs; hope you find a better experience.

    Re: Water in rear jack compartment?

    I have the rear seat and I can't find the jack compartment. Or the place its supposed to be is empty meaning the car was sold to me without a jack. Where exactly is it in an 05 SRX 7-seater? I notice these openings as if to open the floor behind the last row of seats but i can't fogure it out...

    Put the rear seat up. Open the area where the rear head rests are stored. Remove the head rests and then the wing nut holding down the jack cover. Remove the cover and you will see the jack. This is also where you find the screw that lowers the spare.

    well you want the reason? uneven wear....result: I want same size tires all around, tell dealer, dealer says voids warranty, i tell dealer stuff it, dealer calls cadillac europe and confirms. as a result, i pay more for tires, that wear out early...would that justify getting worked up over staggered tires?
