After it rains and I open the rear hatch water runs down side and some comes inside as it drips down? What causes this? Do I have clogged drains somewhere? Thanks

Good news - no blocked drains
Bad news - there is no fix. Water catches in the recess of the upper glass hatch (particularly if the car is in a downhill orientation) the curved line of the window hatch holds the water until the rear hatch is about half way up - when it lets go it is in line with the interior. :laugh:

Well that is good and bad. Guess I will park down hill. Lol
Parking facing down hill will empty the water into your boot. :frown2:
Better to park facing uphill that way the water does not accumulate in the recess.:grin2:
