Default Water leak rear tail light and vents?

Hello all, I am new here. I have a 16 tC (auto :/ ) and have been having some issues since I purchased it used. It was totaled and rebuilt, but there doesn't seem to be any issues because of this. There is a pretty good water leak in the drivers side rear tail light. There are a bunch of dents on the inside
where the tail light is and I will try to upload some pictures at some point. It looks like someone hit it with a hammer or something. There was also water on the floor on the other side, and the vents were also wet so I think water is coming in there as well. Could someone let me know if they have had the same issue.
I was thinking of removing these vents and 3D printing a similar size piece and then using RTV gasket sealer on it. I still have to somehow take apart the taillight inside and possibly replace or reseal it up because I want to Dynamat the interior.

Thanks, Matt

Only option really is to replace the light. Not sure with the car being totaled out if it still has any warranty, but it might not hurt to see if the dealer will warranty replace it.

Yeah I thought of that but there is no warranty because it was totaled and rebuilt. It was sideswiped on the passenger side but the rear bumper was not damaged, but there is damage on the driver side rear underneath the tail light. It seems like the body pieces were seperated from some type of damage. I am planning on taking the bumper off and looking at the damage on the outside and probably using JB weld on it to seal it up, not the best solution but idk what else to do. Do you know anything about those vents leaking? I will post pictures on the thread.

Ah, I found what I was doing wrong. Today I was able to remove the bumper cover and look what I found. I have never taken this off or touched anything, so someone else must have.












the vent


the damage inside, look at the bottom
