Angry Water in rear

Ok.. Last summer I had some water enter into the car on the rear pass side floor carpet and couldnt figure where the ˇ$$ˇ it was coming from. Now after the killer winter and ice we've had i luckly havent had any more water come in. Just a few weeks ago of some really nasty rain still no water... Now the best part..... Today it's nearly 86° outside and lo and behold wet carpet. WTF? has anyone run into water coming into the car

I've been battling water in the spare tire well in the trunk for mine.

After many looks, I found the seam in the upper right hand corner of the trunk well was cracked and leaking.

Not sure if that's travelling forward. Only suggestions if not the door seal would be the roof seals or if it had a moonroof, the rain ducts from that as my first places to look.

I also noticed that the seam sealer around the trunk up by the window in my bird is all cracked to hell as well. I'm going to take it out and reseal it and I'll put money down that's where the water that was coming into my trunk was coming from.

Do you have a sun roof? Drains might be a problem.

All 3 of my cars leak apparently under the trim molding on the roof; it spills into the rear seat/floor area... I've resealed everything else, lol.
