Default Spoiler leak (not into the trunk)

Does anybody else with the sti wing have the issue of water going under the wing and leaking out down the trunk. I am sure it just means it needs to be resealed, but with what I don't know. Foam auto tape? The water runs from the top of the trunk, under the wing, then out the little groove in the trunk. This happens on both sides.

you can try a putty apoxy like this:

Worked when I used it on my dad's lexus door panel and it's still on there. It's been 6 years since I did it, and it's still holding on strong. But follow the directions of setting it and wear some disposable gloves while using it; some of it will come off on your hands.

Glad you figured this out.

Yes, it's so your trunk lid in front of the wing does not turn into Lake Mead when sitting in the rain for some hours and then you perchance have to open it thereafter.
