thanks Mike.. I put a huge garbage bag covering the entire roof (not just the sunroof) over the car and when it rained i had the same result.

my car is parked on a slight incline, nose up. It's mildly damp in the front footwell too... which leads me to one of two scenarios.

1) the rear carpet is so wet that it's soaking up towards the front... I took 3 inches of water out of there a couple days ago..

2) the leak is under the dash on the passenger side... a battery tray inspection revealed very slight rusting but no holes of any kind.

I'd love to find the leak, but will wait until it's warmer to do so. until then i think i'll need a cover, or suffer with the block of ice in my rear passenger footwell.
