Q: Leak spare tire hatch

asked by on

It’s been a very rainy weekend. I went out to my Pontiac Torrent and noticed that the stuff I had on the floor was soaked. The carpet was soaked, too. So I checked for more water in the back of my car. I started taking everything out of the back and looking for where there might be more water. I opened the spare tire hatch and noticed about 7 inches of water! I’ve heard of other Torrents with this problem. My sisters car leaks in the front passenger’s side. How can this be fixed? What should I do? Thank you.
