Water entering 124 trunk...

On rainy days, I get a good amount of water entering my trunk thru the wheel well grommets. Although fine in appearance, and only a bit worn out, I replaced the rubber vent grommets thinking that replacement would solve the problem.

It didn't.

It appears that the body-formed tube passages found underneath the car, on the wheel well, has deteriorated somewhat meaning that water has less length to travel to enter trunk thru those vent grommets.

Has anyone else had this problem and fixed it? I'm considering gluing in some PVC pipe down there to extend the length just a bit, hoping that the water won't enter, having a longer distance to travel. Not sure if it'd work or not, or if this is even the problem.

Any thoughts or suggestions is appeciated as always!
