Usual culprit is the rear light cluster seal. Back off the nuts (you
might need a _deep_ socket or a lot of patience) and see if the
cluster is loose - it should be very firmly stuck in place.
If there's any significant movement, pull it off and reseal it. There
are curved channels around the cluster where it meets the bodywork -
Audi sells a strip sealant that goes into these channels and presses
against the bodywork, but it's $$$. Many moons ago, someone posted
that the _same_ sealant is available under a Porsche number for $.
