If it comes in and pools on the passenger side, I would park myself on the driver side rear seat area and just watch from which direction the water comes from. At this point, it could be coming from just about anywhere, side windows, t-tops, or rear hatch. Get a towel, dry the area, and then get a friend to run water over the car. You should be able to trace the stream back to it's origin.
    ive done this, it only does it when it rains for alonggg time and really hard , and i havent seen n/e where that its coming in

    yeahh, well also i park on a hill facing down. I think that the water cant drain from around the hatch cuz its got those little channels and i think it prolly builds up and leaks in... for now on im just gonna put my car cover on it when it rains and park going up hill lol

    This is a good idea, but I've tried it. NO LEAKS... It's gotta be coming from somewhere...
