Is it in your spare tire well?

Taillight gaskets, 99% of the time.

perfect link^

Its cause of the cheap aftermarket lights you have, you can buy some sealant and put it all around your taillight gaskets. Worked for me. and no your carpet should be fine just very wet, id take it out and give it a nice deep clean.

I used duct tape and it's still dry after about a year now lol. I just covered where my stock ones had sealant from the previous owner.

Or you can buy new gaskets on ebay for about 20 bucks and fix it the right way. It is a major pain to get the lights back off if you use rtv sealant, did it once, will NEVER do it again. When I got my export lights it was a nightmare getting the stock lights off.
