to be sure where the water is coming in from, gut the trunk area. wait inside your car and have a friend hose down your car. starting from top, wait a bit, and if nothing, spray more towards the bottom (wheel wells, under the bumper...).

that's what i had to do when i had a leak coming in the rear of my car. at first i thought it was the window leaking, but it was coming in towards the bottom, from where a missing bolt was supposed to be holding my bumper on. (damn body mechanics). water was getting in there, and i just caulked it.
no more tears.

yeah, it looks like it might be coming in from one of the back windows.
i would still use caulk. i can safely say that will do the job right. i think they have some black colored caulk. ....pretty sure.

oh yeah, it shouldnt cost you much either. im sure you could even find some leftover caulk from your best friend's bathroom job easy.

i would suggest caulking it also but before you do coat the hatch itself with vaseline that way the silicone will not adhere to the hatch there fore sealing it for life.
