Water in Spare Tire Well?

Well i have a very annoying problem. I was looking around in the trunk the other day and i noticed there was some water in the spare tire well. The carpet isn't wet and there is no signs of water damage anywhere, so what could it be? I do have a spoiler (its stock LT one), could it be coming from where its bolted to the trunk lid?

Could be. Easiest way to find the leak is remove all the carpeting and dry out the trunk. Then have you or your buddy climb into the trunk with a flashlight while you on the outside of the car spray water all around the seems of the trunk. Your friend will be able to find the leak.

I just remembered a good joke. Roll her around in flour and look for the wet spot.

I had that happen too, it was coming from the antenna, the bracket on the antenna base broke so the antenna was moving around, and water was leaking into the trunk

Try to wiggle your antenna around, if it moves, that's the likely culprit

Also, is your third brake light warped, I have seen that happen before as well
