Default Interior water leak fixed!!!

Thought I would post this up in case someone else has a similar problem. Last fall I noticed water on the floor of the rear passengers seat. After searching all of the obvious causes based on posts from this forum I finally realized the problem almost by accident. I had just finished installing a new air mix actuator for the HVAC and while sitting on the passengers side with the door open I noticed that the inner door trim was bulging just a bit where it squeezes past the right side of the dashboard near the glove compartment. On closer inspection I realized that the last time that I pulled the weatherstripping after trying to reduce wind noise I apparently didn't make sure that the weatherstripping was fully inserted in the track at that point and since it is such a tight squeeze it was off track from there down through the corner of the front passenger door. It was only barely noticeable but it fits perfectly with where the water has been coming in. So if you are having this issue and it started after you pulled the weather stripping make sure you check that area really close. With that find, repairing the air mix just when the temps hit 97 today, and working through the no start issue with the new PCM I have to say that this week has gone from pretty bad to alllllriiiight!! So... hitting the highway for the weekend! Be safe ya'll.
