whenever it rains if i go to the hatch and lift the carpet, it will be very damp and sometimes there will be a tiny pool of water back there as well...the spoiler was removed and the holes are SEALED...someone please help me, im working on putting electronics back there and i dont want anything to get wet

Thanks,
TP

Sounds like there's a leak somewhere around the hatch, not the holes from the spoiler. What I would check if I were you is the weather stripping around the hatch, make sure it isn't dry-rotted or shot for that matter.

A lot of leaks can from underneath as well. I had a Toyota with a leak in the bottom of the trunk, so water filled up the spare tire well. The gasketing, however, is a likely candidate. Specialized smoke leak-testers are sold, but Joel's idea rocks.

I wouldn't be surprised, with all the traumatic rust issues associated with the hatch. Inspecting the whole hatch and rear floor panels is probably a good anyways, on a car that could be 16 years old, as mine is.
