I had the same model from new last year started accumulating water inside the rear door and the tire well by the buckets every time it rains. Took the car w 3 years 38K miles to Honda since is a body defect to let rain water in at 3 yrs 38K miles . Honda told me that they wanted $250.00 labor and $80 parts to star changing seals to try to determine which one was leaking. I told the dealer that in 41 years buying cars this was the first time I got a car that it was leaking so muck water after 3 yrs. I refused to fix it Honda refused to fix it. This facts indicated to me that craftsmanship and materials were cheap and unreliable. Since Honda did not fix it and I was not going to fix it for the principle that is a 3 yrs old car, I traded the car.Has anyone had any water accumulation in the rear hatch door? When opening and closing the hatch we can hear water sloshing around. We pulled one of the panel clips loose and were able to drain off most of the water any ideas out there?
Has anyone had success in stopping water in their hatch door by any of the troubleshooting or methods mentioned? My 2016 Honda HRV (I’m the original owner and never had this with my previous Honda CRV that I owned for 17 years) began collecting water inside the hatch door itself a month ago, during the pandemic. I opened hatch to put bags of groceries in and water started dripping out of the locking bar area and heard sloshing water. I lifted it up and down several times and each time I heard sloshing and had water dripping out. It drips into the trunk and outside the car depending on how high the hatch is. Every time it rains it fills with more and more water. I can’t put anything in trunk that could get damaged by water dripping water, for short or long periods. The hot summer is coming and the water will get moldy and smelly. And probably begin rusting the metal. In winter it will become a frozen block of ice, weighing down the hatch and that too, will become a safety hazard. I can not locate the weep holes in the photo provided in the thread with arrows. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.There are supposed to be drain holes (or slots) in the bottom of the rear hatch (and side doors too, for that matter) that allow water to drain out. Over time, debris such as pollen can block these drains.
They should be in the inside seam indicated by the arrows.

You could verify that they are clean by inserting a pipe cleaner into them (WAIT! Are pipe cleaners still available? 🤨 ) or a plastic zip-tie.
I’m having the same issue, I can see thatit isn’t sealed properly and unfortunately my warranty has been up for a year or two now.Our dealership told us that the water sloshing in our rear hatch door was caused by a seam seal that failed. Terribly disappointed in the way it was handled. Hopefully there will a recall based on manufacturer defect and we will be recompensated.
So, how did they seal it? Did they take the taillight cover off and use silicone around the gasket? I had a guy on the FB HRV forum say he replaced the O ring on the rear wiper motor which fixed his leak.I purchased my 2016 Honda HRV brand new, but in the last 2 years, I noticed water filling up inside the back hatch door after rain. I wrote Honda & was told to take it back to the dealer service manager to correct it. Supposedly, it was fixed & they also couldn't find where water was coming from, yet I still had the issue afterward. I asked about it again & was told they didn't know what else to do for it. I just found a company based in Canada called Leakpro, they are trying to expand & build up more franchises throughout the United States, but so far only have people in Alabama & North Carolina. My parents live outside of Charlotte, NC, so I contacted Leakpro when I visited. They come to your home & use dye & water to find the leak, then correct it. They guarantee the work for at least 1 year & are Honda Certified. I have read on the internet, seen people having this same issue on this forum, watched you tube videos of people showing how to fix leaks themselves, so I know the issue with Hondas, & Leakpro said they fix quite a few of these vehicles. The leak was coming from my tail lights & I am so happy it has been fixed now! I am going to attempt to turn in my invoice to Honda to see if they will reimburse me since they failed to correct the issue & also do not acknowledge that this issue happens in their vehicles & not just the HRV.
Yes and if yi0ou look in the spare tire well Also will have water. ~half bucket between your rear gate and the spare tire well every time it rains. I was told that the water drainage by the sunroof it is clogged. I took my Honda to a dealer, the dealer did not know what exactly was and it wanted $250.00 labor and $80 in paerts to started changing rubber seals. This was a car with 38K mi . In 45 years of buying cars THE first time THE MANUFACTURER wanted money to fix something I saw it as poor craftsmanship along with cheap parts since the car only has 38K mi and it should fix for free since it was a body defect. I traded the car last Dec before depresiated one more year. Did not want to keep a lemon. Just my observation of the situation.Has anyone had any water accumulation in the rear hatch door?
