iv had same problem, cz i thought water was getting in from the fan (for the heater matrix) but i came frm the rubber door seal, so i dug abit deeper just to find it was running down the passager door (off the glass, into the in side of the door) , an coming out of the doorcard onto the seal. so front an back where wet,. cz theres lil holein the metal wrk where ur passager seat is bolted in at the front, thats how it gets to the back.
