Trunk vent ?

Check the passenger side rear area of the trunk, behind the carpeting.

I have been chasing a leaky trunk for 3 years now. I filled in that vent, and it still leaks.

I filled it in as well and still had some minor leaks, until I bought a can of undercoating and sprayed a good layer underneath and in the rear wheel well. I thing I was getting some spray coming in from the upper strut mount. I also noticed a few drops from the trunk lid. Make sure the weather stripping is sealed all around the trunk lid and if you have a spoiler, there is no dripping from there.

A little bit of clear silicon and a can of undercoating can seal up the trunk and make it dry as a desert. GL

I know when I have ice on the car and it melts I can open the trunk and hear water sloshing around in the trunk itself. I'm not sure how it's getting in but I think ti's the seal around the spoiler that's letting water into the trunk. Every now and then it will drip into the trunk space itself but it's never been an issue yet.

Frozen Condensation, nothing you can do to prevent it. Its moisture in the air that freezes to the interior body and then melts later and settles into low areas in the body. If your car has oil based rust proofing it can help to protect it from causing additional rust from forming. but You cannot eliminate water from condensing on the body. ( Well not unless you live somewhere, where it never gets cold.)

I had the same problem and water was getting in just above the rear light... a small bead of solicone in the corner to direct the wated down the side and it's been dry since...

and the bolts from the hatch that holds the trunk shut

Yep, mine was leaking due to the cargo net bolts snapping off. Just filled the holes with silicon and it was fine.

The problem with mine seems to be leaking from the sunroof and/or the sunroof drain, but whichever it is, it is apparently running down the drain tube until it reaches the trunk and then dripping off into the trunk and settling into the spare tire well from there. There is rust forming in the trunk, on the passenger side, where the drain tube runs across the top of some metal along side some wires. Pull back your trunk carpet on the sides and check for that.
