So after the recent rains here in karachi, I came to know that there had been water seeping into the spare tyre compartment of my prius 1.8. The water was flowing through some gaps right under the trunk. And the battery side and the tyre side was flooded.
I drained the water and checked to see the location of where the water was coming in from. Turns out there seems to be some sort of crack behind the tail lights. I tried opening them up but couldn't detach the lights successfully. So, I wanted to ask that whether u guys have experienced similar things and if so, then how did u fix it.
Also, would I need to open up the rear bumper to remove the light as it seemed to be stuck from the lower side only.
The picture shows the tail light partially removed. The water was seeping in from the drain that runs behind the light.
