I was installing a trailer harness and when I lifted the insulated pad that is located in the cargo area of an MKC; it was wet, also, I noticed that the bottom of the rim on the spare tire had rust. Anyone have this issue?

Wow. Better look up a forum member named mayday. Good luck with that and with Lincoln. Look him up and use his example if Lincoln gives you any problem. He had to get a lawyer. He's on the mkc Facebook group too where he posted his horror story.

Rolle check under your seats too..this guys MKS was flooded after a big rainstorm.

He is mayday0017 on here and Robert Preuss on facebook Lincoln MKC facebook page. Read his story and check your car thoroughly...

Good luck.

My 2016 was built in August and looks to be not part of the issue.

Rolle, I can only share my own experience; I had a very similar issue with my Mustang GT in the trunk having moisture,took everything out of it,including my spare and surface fitted mat....found out the leak was coming from an improperly installed rubber grommet at the base of the trunk, right below the spare tire.....took it out, cleaned it and put it back using some rubber paste seal usually used on grommets, problem solved...just make sure the trunk is left empty, and open and leave it in the sun for an afternoon till everything is bone dry....It's a minor inconvenience at worst....
I would also take a look under the carpeting on the floor in the rear seat, if there is moisture there, I can almost assure you it would be coming through a grommet ... you can see evidence of water intrusion around the grommet...take it out and properly seal it....I used a product called Bostic it's almost tar based and dries pliable and non sticky...and black.
Any decent acrylic door seal would work.

I checked the wheel well in my car and it is dry as a bone thankfully.

I have a 2015 Lincoln MKZ and have recently started seeing puddles of water in the trunk under the spare tire also I have been researching everywhere trying to find out the cause and every mechanic I’ve spoken to tells me I’d have to take it to a body shop 😒 I have even painted inside the well with a rubber coat sealant thinking it may be coming from old seals at the bottom of my trunk but took it to the car wash today and what do you know once again I have water in the well 😔
