so my 2017 with 25k miles on it leaked this weekend sometime during a rain event. it rained pretty much all day one day. We went shopping at the beginning and i did not notice it wet back there but the next morning, soaked. lucklily i have a rubber mat that collect spills back there so no harm and no foul.

i tried to reproduce by pouring water over the gap in the back where the hatch pivots but i think water only comes in when you open the hatch. seems to trickle out of the drivers side trim of the hatch door.

i just washed it and not one drop but i did not open the hatch.

i have read about the light back there leaking becasue of the washer house seal and i did notice a drop or two on the light and headliner that next morning but nothing after i washed just now.

i am wondering if it is leaking into the hatch and not draining- is it supposed to?- and then maybe it filled up then overflowed into the hatch area?


thoughts?

if my idea is true, then if i go back out there later and open it, it should leak into the area?

?

According to the official leak detection guide, there are some plugs and a roof seam that might also cause a leak back there:
