Take it to a shop that you trust. They can be a pain to diagnose and/or fix, but they see it all the time and should be able to fix you right up. If you want, you could could let down a window a tad and seal up the end of a vaccum hose in it. Put the hose on the blow side of the shop vac and pump up your car with air. Spray the spots that could be leaking with soapy water and look for air escaping in the form of bubbles. That could lead you in the right direction.
