You either have a t-top that is leaking, or the hatch is leaking somewhere along the top. If it's a t-top, I'd assume that it is the driver's-side.

i'm thinking its somewhere along the hatch just don't know where,because if it was the ttop i would think the top of the seat would be wet.

i found a puddle more than once on the floor boards in the back... my tops and hatch are fine. i have no clue how it gets there... but i thought it was from the floor up through bolt holes and what not. sealed them all up and poof no more water... just a thought... drive through any puddles?

do you have brother? maybe someone is playing a joke on you... or the lower rear door seal is bad, maybe a gap between the window seal at the top? pull out a hose, and give your car a bath. put your thumb over the end for some pressure, hit the seams and you should be able to see where it's leaking from... just a suggestion is all

i did the hose thing couldn't really find where it was coming in from. i'm thinking its got to be the top of the hatch cause thats the only way i can see how it would get under the seat.

have you folded down the rear seat backing? there might be some evidence of water damage between the seat backing

I just finished drying out my drivers side. It was most wet from underneath the rear seat and less wet to my my front floor boards. My driveway is slanted pretty good. I finally noticed that anytime I park with the front of the car downhill and we get a big rain it gets wet. If I park the other way everything is dry. Car doesn't leak when in the car wash. Haven't tried to find the leak other than re-seating the t-tops and rear hatch. I just park with the front uphill. Don't know if this applies to your situation.
