water coming in rear window

i have noticed for the past few weeks that every time it rains the carpet next to the hidden storage in the rear is wet. i also notices that there are water spots on the inside of the rear glass. it appears that there is water running inside the seals of the rear glass and down where the latch for the rear door is.
is anyone have the same problems or even noticed it at all. I have already been through the leaking hard top issue with the dealership and finally got that solved, now it seems like the rear glass is leaking. any help or info is appreciated.. thanks

My hose to the rear window wiper leaks - well, more than leaks, it sprays all over the inside of the back of the car. I also have a blue stain on that part of the hard top from where the fluid comes down. Is it possible yours is doing the same thing?

may just be a tailgate latch adjustment is necessary, try that too.

Yea my rear hatch is leaking too. It leaks at both ends at the big rubber knobs. It looks like it is getting behind the rubber and then dripping on the carpet. I have the catch all in the back so that at least the carpet is not getting wet. I have tried another piece of rubber at the end untill I can see the Dealer. I think a good caulk job would take care of it but want the dealer to see it first.

i have the same issue. I cut the carpet out of the little hidden compartment area anyways. Thats where i keep my tow strap so it will get nasty. And there is a rubber plug i can take out for drain

Bring it back to the dealer. They replaced my window seal. They never heard of the problem but they replaced the rubber anyway.
