Rust inside quarter panel

Long story short, I've discovered some rust inside my passenger-side quarter panel. I want to treat it with a rust inhibitor before it gets worse.

Also, if practical, I would first like to find and fix the leak. The rear windshield seal seems to be a likely suspect. Alternatively, I could just treat the rust every year, or so.

Any suggestions?


Note: In the photo, the glare of the flash, makes the rust looks worse than it actually is.

The culprit is likely a body plug, that area receives A LOT of tire splash

Check the body seams under the trunk lid below the rear window.
