Toyota Camry 2009. Nice pool of water in the bottom of the trunk? Tip: There are plugs to let out the water on the bottom. Gave it two weeks and there isnt any more water, but weather has been ok. How do I diagnose the problem? Don't see any issues with the seal. Is it possible it got in cuz of a large puddle etc and not from an issue with the seal?
  You have leafs, and dirt/debris or a whole bunch of junk by the gasket by your trunk?

 Did you close it last time it rained?

 If the answer is yes to any of those that's your answer.

Trying to replace a brake light fixture on a 2020 Accord, YouTube is helpful until it comes to disconnecting the wires from the current light, the wires just donít seem to disconnect.
Did anyone do this recently and have any helpful advice.

There will be a tab to push, and it might be a tight fit.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half
