    It could be the tail lights but my first guess would have been a leak from the sunroof drain tubes which run from the roof down in the quarter panel and then out to the exterior near the quarter panel/rear bumper. If your tail lights aren't foggy and condensing then I'd assume it's a drain tube leak. You should probably check both.

      Hey there, got water on both sides of the hatch/trunk floor so I eBay-ed some aftermarket gaskets. I should back up and say I have a 90rs. No sunroof so no leak there (I hope). My question(s) 1, do I have to remove both back and side liner pannels? 2, does that plastic wire hanger/clip on the lower outside nut just pry off? I hate putting stress on antique plastic if I don't have to.

        I can take lights off with just the access panels removed. Kindof a pain but doable. And yes those clips over the screw just pry off

          Sorry for the late response. I've been busy with work. Haven't got time for the teg yet. But to answer your questions. yes there are condensation (very light) on the taillights. Can you send me the link for diy on how to fix the taillights?

            Thanks so much for the reply. I'm horrendously late posting this as we're up to our **ses. The RS was stolen shortly after this post. It's our daily drive so we started looking for a replacement. Found and bought a 90 LS. Not our best buy as it needs immediate t-belt change and came doused in fragrance (F-breeze?) Good point(s) it came with records back to purchase. A month later we got Ol' Silver back!! Still intact, including the still in package TAIL LIGHT GASKETS!!
            LOL I''m just getting around to them now. Thanks much guys!
