So that was not a pleasant surprise. I lifted the back seat and the carpet below was absolutely soaked. We had a lot of rain in the previous days so it must be leaking from somewhere but not sure where. It seems to be running down the C pillar behind the leather cushion at the side of the seats but I don't know where it starts. The headlining seems dry.

Did anyone have a similar problem before I start tearing everything apart?

I already sealed the aerial since it was also leaking. Maybe not enough though... I do have to pull the headliner out again so might as well do it now... Just too bad I didn't do this in the summer.

Did you mean the seal on these windows?

Right, disassembled the right side and took a look. Water seems to be running through the outer door seal, then at the edge of the door and finally inside the cabin. Pictures are terrible, but best I could do.

I cleaned the seal as much as I could and maybe, hopefully it's better now. I left it disassembled for now to test it again tomorrow.

Any other advice?

Headlining is completely dry, so luckily no issues there.

I tried to show the water path, but failed miserably it seems :) As far as I could see, it enters the seal on the door lip and enters the cabin as it trickles down. Seems fine now after cleaning the seal though and a full day of rain. Maybe cleaning made the seal push better against the lip and keep the water out of the seal? Might be worth applying some vaseline or something like that as well?
