New to me 2006 CRV SE. Took it through the car wash and had water really leaking into the cargo door's stash pockets from the rear hatch window (see images).

The previous owner told me that the car had a minor fender bender that affected the driver's side rear corner (see image). There are some scratches, but not much else.

The window gasket / weatherstripping appears to be in good order. Wondering if a minor rear end incident could cause a window to leak?

Anyone dealt with this before? It's not a terrible issue at the moment as I live in Southern California, but if it were to rain, it'd definitely be an issue.

Thanks!

Definitely 'tweaked' as the last picture shows vividly. On the second picture, you can see the stains from the water droplets that got past the seal.

Is the spare tire 90 degrees to the road? (again, looking at the last pic) (Straight up & down)
That is what gets bumped in slight collisions first, and that often bends the tailgate. (The spare isn't meant to be a bumper) o_O

Thanks for thet reply...

I don't believe the spare / spare mount is bent at all from a collision. When looking at it straight on, it appears straight.

And yes, my thoughts were the same about the window / body looking a bit tweaked.

Now now to fix... Seems out of my wheelhouse unless loosening the hex/torx bolts and readjusting the window could do it.

Definitely more damage than a tweaked rear bumper. The spare always gets it first. Look around for a similar model and take a few photos of the same areas. Plus remove your spare. I'm convinced the tailgate is tweaked. Metal bends, glass doesn't and its telling you the story.
