Default HELP - Water getting in somewhere!? Back seat, Pass Side.

Ok, about a month ago I noticed that the floor of the back seat, passenger side was SOAKED with water. I took a look at the weatherstripping, and it wasnt in the healthiest condition at all. I spent a whole day in my heated garage vaccumming the carpet with a wet-dry shop vac, and re-adhesiving all the weatherstripping with 3M weatherstrip adhesive. I thought this would correct the problem.

Last night I reach into the back seat, and the floor is SOAKED again. Almost like a puddle. Now I know for a fact its not coming from ANY of the doors, they are all sealed very tightly, trust me.

My question is, has this ever happened to anyone before?? I read once before about the bottom windshield seal possibly being known for leaking on our cars? Anyone ever had that problem? Only other thing I can think of is maybe the sunroof drains are blocked, and the waters running from the roof inside the car somehow, but I think if that was hapening it would drip?

Anyways, any info would be greatly appreciated before I consider selling the car or trading it in :(

Thanks!

-Chris

Rear window seal if your trunk liner is wet, or the drains in the rear pillars if it'* not. That'* my 2 cents.

yes, passenger side only of the trunk liner is soaked as well, all the way back to the taillights.

Think its a rear window seal? If so, anyone ever repalced it? whats involved?

I have full glass insurance... If I didnt have to pay the $50 deductible and another $100 to get it re-tinted, I'd "accidentally" smash something through it.

Thanks.
