On the 2011 Compass the scuff plate for the rear hatch has a recessed area in the middle for the strike plate. It's canted inward and has a slot through which the striker protrudes. Water and snow goes down into this recessed area slips past the striker and ends up in the spare tire well. There's no gasket there and there doesn't appear to be one. Further to this problem if I make a gasket and seal the area off, the water will build up in the recess and soak the latch when the gate is closed. I don't know what to do short of periodically mopping out the spare tire well. Any ideas?
