Leaks can occur from the smallest of holes, try using a hair dryier on cool and use the air to see where the leaks are, then you will be able to fix the leak

Thanks for the advice.I did that same thing w/water, but cant see where its coming in. That why I tried to silicone anything that looked sketchy, but still getting water somehow. And its strange b/c its on both sides of the hatchback. Which leads me to believe its at the top of the hatch somwhere, but only place at top is where the washer fluid comes thru, an I siliconed it also. So very strange.

How do the weatherstripping look? Is there anywhere where it look like it is not sealing correctly? Don't know if it will help but on my subaru hatchback I clean it off and while I am cleaning I use armall on everthing not too much or on the glass it makes it so it seals a little better

Yeah I looked at all the seals and any that looked shaddy I siliconed. Tested again today. And it seems like one side has stopped, so that is good.I'm going to take to a friend of mine at a body shop and let him see if he can figure it out.I hate to gob up the whole hatch w/silicone looking for the leak. Especially since the car only has 20g miles on it and everything looks brand new. Thanks again for your input.
