it may be the rear light may be cracked or the boot rubber seal. you should also look at a rubber bung that near to bumper level that lets water in too.
I pulled out all the little rubber plugs on the trunk lid. Problemed solved.
my mom's 1991 Chevy lumina always smells musty or "stuffy" and it's because her trunk leaks. just an idea. the leak or source of moisture may not necessarrily be in the passenger compartment.AnswerYou might also want to have your A/C system inspected, specifically the vents/ducts. Mold can grow inside these areas.
A bad trunk seal weatherstrip.
Have you checked the Gasket that goes around the Trunk opening?
I had the same problem with my 1992 Accord. Replacement of the trunk lid gasket fixed the leak, but I had to special order the gasket from a dealer.
Bad rubber seal around trunk lid?
no. How could you have a leak without a leak? There's a hole in the system somewhere.
It has been damaged or the seal has deteriorated

you have a leak. Take it to a body shop you trust and have them check it. The leak is most likely coming from the taillights.
It could be as simple as a vacuum leak but without knowing what year, make, model and engine it is hard to tell you what it may be.
If you live in a second floor condo and you rent the condo, the leak that causes damage is the responsibility of the owner of the building. If you own the condo, the leak is the responsibility of the owner of the condo with the leak.
Dealer or body shop. Have you tried getting in the trunk with a flashlight and having someone pour water on the rear of the car.
If it were mine, I would have someone get inside of the trunk(boot)with a flashlight. Close it and then run some water over and around the edge of the trunk; not too much pressure. Start at the bottom(closest to you) and slowly work your way around one side to the other and then back to the bottom. In other words, make a loop around the edge of the trunk. Your helper should be able to see where the water is coming in, if there is no leak then it might be around the taillights or rear window. If the leak is around the trunk weatherstrip, either replace it or close the gap at the leak by hammering the lip of the trunk opening, not the trunk lid itself. If it around the taillights or window, try using some silicone sealer.
A small leak in the vapor system from the tank to the engine.
A leak somewhere, possibly cracked head or head gasket.
Do you have a spoiler? Could be coming from the bolts holding it on.
Tail light rubber gasket is worn out. $15 from dealer.
There are many possible leak points, but the most common place for a trunk water leak in a neon is around the tail lamp mounting bolt holes. If you are unable to locate and repair the leak, there are people who specialize in this type of repair.
It all depends on the failed part. If the leak can be repaired without a rebuild, then yes.
Usually a tear.
