There is a rubber seal that runs along the bottom edge of the hatch window which I had removed back in the spring and cleaned fine black dirt out of the channel it rests in, it's that channel that was then filling with water. I removed an obstruction on the passenger side which I think was diverting water into that rubber strip ending. It looks like that rubber seal had adhesive at each end at one time, thinking I need to renew that.
Water on floor-removed the tail light assembly, its rubber seal was really mucked up, AND there's a number of body joints in that vicinity along with some putty used under the paint. Joints are starting to fail and putty is lifted in places, all letting water into that area.
Going to por15 the joints and use silicone to seal. Glad I caught this now before the rust had a chance to really take off.
