roof leak

I have the same leak on my passenger side, near the back window and stains on my head liner. The dealer thinks that it's from the rear back window glass. What was your out come?

They had my car all day and could not make it leak. So they say. I have not had it happen again since that one time. My leak was from above, not from the window. I could see it dripping from the sunroof track. My thoughts are either there was pollen built up where the sunroof meets the roof or the strip around the sunroof is dryrotting and cracking to let water pass. Regardless, they didnt do anything to fix it and told me there was only a 12 month warranty on the sunroof.

Howdy folks! Long time lurker.

I've owned 2 Gencoupes prior to the one I have now.

I had a 2010 2.0, No Sunroof, a 2011 3.8, with Sunroof, and a '13 2.0(P).

I had this problem with the 2011. Same symptoms. Wet headliner, water dripping down on the speakers, epic amounts of condensation on the rear and front windows, and the feeling of sitting on a wet seat. I then found up to half an inch of standing water in the rear passenger footwell, especially after a large deluge.

I thought the first time was a fluke, as the windows weren't closed all the way, and I had a significant amount of water coming down from a neigbor's roof on to my car. So, I dried it all out with a dehumidifier and heaters. It happened again, so I took the car into Victoria Hyundai. They thought it was the sunroof, so they resealed it, and tightened down the headliner (under warranty). It happened again a week later, so back to the dealership I went.

They took it for a leak check, and narrowed the water ingress down to the shark fin antenna on the roof. They tore it off, resealed it, and the car was completely bone dry after that.

Hope this helps.

I pulled my rear interior and all the trunk carpets for no particular reason last weekend. Fast forward to this evening. I grab a case of beer after work, pop the trunk, and it's soaked with water. I drove home and investigated in my driveway. Turns out the drivers side tail light has a small amount of water in the housing itself but it's full of water on the backside (the part inside the trunk). So I look at it and see exactly where the water is coming in. I'll go snap some photos. Brb

Yup. There is dirt right where it's entering. Makes sense but still a pretty poor design. After I clean it all up ill take care of it. Pics are on route, uploading onto my PC now. If anything this is a good quarterly checkup point because if not for removing all the trunk lining id have never noticed

Put some black tape over the seam between the body and the black plastic trim over the top of the tailight. That will force the water to go over the lens instead of behind it.

That actually isn't too bad^^^

A couple months ago we had a lot of heavy rain storms in a short period of time, I didn't notice anything until I went to drive a couple friends home and noticed the back seats floor was SOAKED! (it literally felt like someone poured 10L of water on the floor on my back seats)

I also popped the trunk liner later that night to find about 3 inches of water that had been overflowing into the rear seats (which was causing everything to get soaked!)

I couldn't get to it until the next day, where I took a shopvac to it all and pulled out over 8L of water...

I brought it to the dealership and they also traced it to the drivers side taillight, they resealed in and it's been dry ever since.

The only thing that I can't seem to get rid of is the white mold that has decided to infest my trunk...:barf::barf: I use a cleaner and scrub it out and dry it every time, but it always comes back

The rear side window (driver side), has an issue where the window is not mounted properly to the frame. This causes a gap between the rubber window surrounding, and the body. Water can get in, and because there IS a speaker in the corner, can cause electricial issues.

There is a TSB for this. I had mine replaced at the dealer. Took them about a day, and they said the window bracket was in fact broken and a common issue. This was for a 2010.
Do you have the TSB number for this? My car recently started leaking, and being winter in New England it's really a problem. My dealer can't find the correct TSB, and I looked on the hyunda tech website, I couldn't find it either.

If you have water in the taillights you will have water in the trunk and it will end up on the rear floor. Warranty the taillights, this fixes it for most

Sorry to revive an older thread, but I too am having a problem with water leaking in above the passengers side rear window. Looks exactly like the OPs pics. Just noticed it last night, so I'm gonna stop by the dealer on the way home. I already have an appointment setup for next Saturday to have them replace one taillight but I'm not going to wait that long to show the SA.

Kinda pissed too. My Jetta I traded in for this car had a leak issue that was never fixed and I was hoping to not have issues like this with this car.

The water leakage on nonsunroof editions is caused mainly by the shark fin antenna(seen almost every gen i know have this problem) and as previously stated with sunroof seals being clogged.

Little update.

Got the car back after bringing it in last Saturday, they said the drains weren't clogged at all. Ok, whatever.

Monday comes around, it rained all night and when I went to leave for work, it was leaking, again.

Brought it right to them on the way to work, showed my SA. He gave me a loaner and sent me on my way. He called me this morning to let me know Hyundai authorized them to re-apply the roof seam sealer as apparently it wasn't applied correctly or there wasn't enough and they're replacing my headliner since the leak stained it.

Should have the car back Monday or Tuesday.
