    water ingress

    I seem to be getting a leak at the rear of the car, hope you can help me....

    On the rear quarter shelves just below where the rear seat belts come out, I have noticed small puddles after its been raining.
    Does anyone know of an area where water can enter, is this a common thing? If anyone has any clues please could you lat me know.
    The car is on a 'T' 99' plate

    Thanks

    Dave

    The car is a three door so it won't be the rear door seals, I must admit I haven't noticed if the head lining is damp, but the boot seal looks ok.
    I was wondering if there are any drainage channels that could be blocked as it is coming in on both sides?

    You have a sunroof? When you say the headlining is wet, where do you mean? Is the aireal base in good condition the rubber not slit.

    Can you take (and post) a pic of where the water sits.

    Depending on where the water is, will make is easier to guess.
