I've read several posts about cargo area leaks - I think that I have the opposite problem. My cargo area apparently seals very tight. My 05 SSR has to sit outside (sniff) and is subject to the cool nights and warms up in the sun. When I open the cover, there are water droplets on all of the painted undersurface of the lid and the upper liner is damp to the touch. Anyone else notice this phenomenon?? Any ideas/suggestions/TSB's?????

condensation

I've seen this also. Don't believe you can prevent it, and it has not caused mildew or mold problems for me. You could put a bag of dessicant in there. They are made for moist basements and really pull a lot of moisture. When wet, you renew them by baking.

sounds like the corvette syndrum, it is also known as the icebox affect. Like you said, cold nights and warm days trap the cold moisture under the liner and the metal warms up faster than the plastics which hold the moisture creating the dampness. You may have to put the carpet kit in it to solve the problem. That is only my view and I am sure an engineer will read this and offer up some other suggestions. I hope you get an answer before it causes problems.
