    Sloshing water in rear of del Sol

    After a heavy rain or going through a car wash, I generally hear water sloshing around in the back my '93 del Sol, around the rear window. This ends up allowing moisture into the trunk which I have successfully blocked with a few spare diapers.

    I believe that are some drains under the compartments in the back there--perhaps those are clogged? Is it normal to have water drain through the back window assembly?

    I'm wondering if some water also gets trapped in that window assembly too, only to leak out slowly. In any case, I'm wondering if this is a common experience or what. I can especially hear water moving when going around a corner when it happens.

    That's perfect--exactly what I was thinking and now I understand where the water is too. Thanks for the link! Maybe someday I'll be able to go through a car wash again

    Del Sol, water sloshing in rear window

    I was able to use a wooden dowel (~0.25 inch diam. x ~30 inch long) and stick it into the drain holes (visible with window down using flashlight). Minor plugging by leaf debris was easily dislodged and drained all the debris and water out. I'd try this before removing ANY body parts.

    Easy No Maintenance Fix

    I used someone elses idea and went to Wamart and bought the generic effervescent denture cleanser tablets (equate) for $2.97. I rolled down my back window; dropped 2 tablets on each side and 30 minutes later there was a puddle under my car. I have had the problem of water being held up in this compartment every time it has rained for over 2 years now. Problem solved without any maintenance.
