Default Water leak thru Hatch Strut Mount?

I have a leak that comes thru where the rear hatch strut mounts to the deck. Water comes out thru the hole when I open the hatch after it rains. It does not leak into the car when the hatch is closed. Where should I check? The spoiler is not cracked, other than under the spoiler I cannot see how water would get through there?

Thanks!

I'm not sure where to look for water entering, but if nothing else you could always add some drain holes...

Beyond that I'd inspect gaskets and look for holes.

I think there is a TSB on that. Check it out.

Anyone have a free link for TSB's? I can't seem to find any and I really don't want to pay $24.95 to read one TSB.

Thanks!
