    Very unlikely to be the windscreen rubbers as they are hermetically sealed. Common areas for water leaks are:
    1. Badly fitted or broken wiper scuttle
    2. Pollen filter
    3. bonnet release cable entry
    4. Sunroof (if you have one) drain holes blocked
    If you don't have a sunroof then it's most likely the scuttle. These can warp over time or just be badly fitted/broken when the windscreen has been replaced in the past.

    Sunroof is most likely cause, how do you know the drains aren't blocked?
    the pollen filter is underneath the scuttle on the passenger side.
