Takin' a leak

Performance Fords
Opened my trunk to find a lake of water in the spare tire well after the last rain. Pulled the rubber plug to drain and then spent an hour looking for the leak. Nothing apparent until I let the hose pour water over the car while I layed in the trunk with a flashlight. Lookey what I found...


Evidently, there is an alignment pin on one of the plastic brackets that mounts the bumper cover that can leak. Not sure if they forgot to put a gaskety thingy on that pin or whether this is a design flaw but... I gooped it from the inside to stop the leaking.

Anyone who stores their car outside or is going to take it out in the weather like I do better check this area out.
