Exclamation 2006 Mustang GT, water leak driver side quarter and trunk.

popped my trunk about an hour ago to fnd the carpet wet, pulled the lining and theres a little water in the gorve on the drivers side, so i pulled the side lining and found water in the quarter pannel, ( water is only on the drivers side) is this the air baffle thing or somtning worse?

If there's grit in the bottom of the quarter panel trough where the water pooled, then the cause may be the driver's side rear tire splashing water onto a poorly sealed area on the underside of the quarter panel where the gas fill tube passes thru it when traveling on wet roads.
You can easily check if this is the cause by drying out the quarter panel trough, jack up that corner of the car, remove the wheel, and spray water from a hose under the car where the gas tube passes thru the quarter panel. If the trough refills with water, then seal around the gas fill tube on the underside of the quarter panel. Duct seal effectively fixed the same problem on my 05 GT.

If that doesn't fix it completely you might want to pull your back seat up and check the large rubber plugs that give access to the fuel pump - gas tank. I had the same problem. My dealership siliconed around the gas filler on my 06, but later leaks lead to the large plugs under the seat. No sure what they did, but it fixed the leak on the rear trunk quarter panel driver's side.
