Default factory Defect??????? Very pissed!!! water in spare tire well!!!!

I would like to know if anyone has had problems with their rear hatch leaking.....
the past two times its rained last week and today (its rainy heavy right now!!!) i have had the bottom of my rear hatch filled with atleast 2-3 inches of water!!!!! I thought at first I might of had a leak from underneath but now getting up this morning and not having driven my car today I know now that my hatch is leaking and leaking bad!!!!! has anyone else had this problem???? I am taking it to Honda on Monday morning and raising hell!!!!!! my Si is a 2004 and only a couple of months old !!!! I cant find were its leaking from but I have to get it fixed !!!!! I love my honda and it kills me to think its being hurt!!! i take such good care of it that things like this just make me sick!!!! I expected alot more from honda especially sice this is my 6th honda, 2nd Si... Also i removed my spare tire, jack, carpet and flimsy board from the back hatch to save on weight... this was one of the first mods i made to my car and I have had the car for a few months now and this is the first problem I have had with the car..... any help I would really appreciate it ..... thanks -Drew [email protected]

check for any loose door rubber seals or if they are damaged.

Had the same problem with my RSX. Just took it to the dealership and had them reseal the rubber seal around the hatch. Problem solved.

I have an 02 ep3 and havn't had any water problems...

This maybe be a dumb question but is there any chance water came up through the hole that the spare tire tie down screws into?

Sounds like maybe the sunroof drain tube is disconnected

It's a honda trait. My GS-R had the problem and the first time it rained checked my EP3 and sure enough there was water in the wheel well.

Took 3 trips to the dealer to fix the problem. Ended up being a hole (1/8 dia) in the sheet metal above the right rear wheel. Plugged with some silicon and problem is fixed until the silicon wears out.
