Although many of the tips contained in this Tech Manual have already been suggested in previous posts, I have found it to be very useful when troubleshooting leaks and wind noise on my 97 Riv. (It is the companion manual for the video already mentioned earlier.) The Park Ave is included in some of the discussions as well because some of the solutions apply to both.
Click here: http://www.dorothypowers.com/RIVPDF/Know_How.pdf to view/download the PDF version of the pages from this Tech Manual that pertain to the Riviera. (Please excuse the link reference; I'm borrowing space from another website.)
Hope this helps those having water leak and/or wind noise issues!
Wait a sec... are you the Rivlanta from youtube with all the awesome Buick tech videos? I enjoy the hell out of watching those.

Well, I ripped up all my carpet today and the results were inconclusive... There was some stagnant water in the spare tire area but nowhere else was even wet. I plan on taking some sealant and going over every factory area and then covering it all with sound deadening material.

I had a leak and was able to see the path that it was coming in at. The factory sealant used on the seams behind the taillight assembly had a big gap that was open to the top of the seam that allowed water to run right in the trunk. Once I found and fixed that, no more leak.
