Yuuuuup that's where my trunk leaky leakies. I haven't looked close enough to see if those plastic squares are broken though.

That vent (which I think is to allow air to escape when closing the trunk to keep the pressure even, and let people breath if you get trapped in there?) is under the carpet in the right and rear most part of the car, on the side of the wall. When I'm washing my car or driving in rain, a good 2" pool of water is found under it.

Is the dealer doing anything about it my_bd?

yep - they're replacing it tomorrow morning!!

mine is broken somewhere, the mounts i guess, it's very loose, you can wiggle it in and out a fair bit, yeah, huuuuge puddle of water down in there after washing the car or driving in the rain.

I suspect I may have another water leak elsewhere, I pulled out the whole trunk liner, bottom and sides, and i noticed that the liner for the right side was wet all along the bottom, and i saw a small trail of water leading along the edge of the trunk and disappeared up beside the back seat. hmmmm....

first I'll get this vent taken care of, and then I'll investigate further.
