Through the headliner around the rear of the roof opening panel.
Into the left and right-hand-side rear footwell.
Water ingress from the above may be caused by poorly routed / blocked / kinked / twisted front roof opening panel drain tubes or a badly fitted front or rear door water shedder.
Action: In the event of a customer concern of any of the above, refer to the Diagnostic Procedure outlined below to inspect and rectify the source(s) of the water ingress.
