I am getting water on the floor behind the drivers seat when i let it sit in the rain. I'm thinking the water is coming in the car from a sunroof drain. Is it possible the drain is plugged? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks

I figured out where the water was coming in. I flooded the windshield and had the doors opened. I looked inside and noticed water coming in from above the drivers left foot rest. I opened the hood and removed the cover that covers the battery compartment. Looked inot the corner on the drivers side and wallah. I noticed the hood release cable coming through the firewall had its rubber grommet pushed through the firewall exposing a hole where the water was coming in from. The grommet was a pain to get it back where it needed to be but, as a precaution i used clear 100% silicone adhesive sealant around the grommet so it would not leak or get pushed through again. Poured water over the windshiel a few hours later and no more water was coming into the car. What a relief.
