    Anyone else have this issue? I drove in some pretty heavy rain for about an hour and then a few days later opened the Frunk to show some people the tow hook location and noticed the carpet was pretty wet.

    It should not be - this means your seal is leaking. Call the service folks.

    I had this issue. I identified the area of the leading edge of the seal that was leaking by dust and water marks. I raised the seal slightly by putting a thin piece of parachute cord under the seal. No problems since

    I did. Service center realigned the hood. No problems since but it's only been 1.5 weeks.
