      Trunk water!

      I suspected something was amiss when I found some damp papers at the bottom of the trunk a couple of months ago. Weather remained dry until recent snow and rain, when I found the trunk well was wet. Not so much on the upper surfaces. I hoped it was because there were loads of pine needles around the upper trunk edge, and that drainage was stopped up. Cleaned it all out, but after several days of rain, it’s even worse today. Soaked a lot up, but I suspect there’s more to this problem.

      Has anyone else had the same problem? How’d you fix it?
      THANKS!

      I got it too. Mine looks to be coming from the left drain, but haven't found a culprit yet.

      This happened to ours when we first got it two years ago. I cleaned the rubber channels at the very rear bottom of the hardtop (there was sludge in there) and as I recall I also poked through the drain holes that are located there, and no problem since then, also not in heavy rains. I was prepared to replace the rear light gaskets and bought them, but so far have not had to install them.

      Like the others said, check the drains along the trunk channel. When the drains back up, sometimes water seeps in through the seals for the rear taillights.

      I had the same issue, I replaced the two rear seals that go between the tailights and the body of the car.

      So I ordered the tail light seals today. I've not looked back there to see how much work is involved. Can you give me a quick rundown on what needs to be removed to get those tail lights off?

      I am wondering if anyone knows if the front grille to the 2020 XC90 will fit on the 2017 XC90. I figured that since it is cracked and needs to be replaced why not update the look as well.

      Sweet action! Thanks my brethren! Saw that panel, but figured it couldn't be that easy.
