'04 GT Vert with WATER sloshing around

I have a '04 Mustang convertible, and when it rains hard or I run it through a car wash I get water sloshing behind the back seat where the top folds into.

Question - Where is this coming from? Is it supposed to collect there, and then drain? Where are the drains?

I had a Chrysler Sebring that would get a sloshing sound when the drains in the pinch welds would clog - is there an engineered drainage system for the New Edge convertibles that I am unaware of?

Any help is appreciated ... the car is in great shape, but ti's done this since I bought it - so I dunno if it's a problem, or a feature.

On the coupes, the water gets funneled onto a drip rail under the trunk lid, which then dumps the water behind the tail lights. Perhaps the convertible has a similar system? If so, leaves do like to collect there.

The Vert drains should dump right in front of the back wheels....

You need to remove the boot skin to see the drains, and clean them out I'm betting...

Thanks FE - I'll look there. When you say 'boot skin' I assume you are talking about the flexible vinyl sheet behind the rear seat that the top folds into? That is where the water is collecting
