    First things first, does the car have a factory-fit sunroof? The drain channels do block. I've heard of wet footwells (blocked drain grommets) in the bulkhead, and wet boot area (rear wash pipe disconnected at tailgate), but back seats is a rear puzzle? Was it raining when the car was parked? Only thing I can think of is a perished door seal.

    Some cheap door rubbers here.
    Only part numbers so you'll need to cross reference them to make sure they fit.
