Unhappy lake in footwells on Mazda 1994 323F

The rear passenger footwell is constantly filling with rain water even when the car is left parked ! I've checked window / door seals, the underneath of the car for split and cracked welds, and the sun roof. This is becoming a major problem now as I don't seem to be able to trace the source of the leak, could it be that there is an internal drain from the sun roof which has detached or that the passenger side door/windows are in fact leaking. The roof lining and side walls of the car all seem perfectly dry eventhough there is a good quarter of an inch of water constanly lying beneath the front passenger seat and rear footwell ?
Can anyone out there throw any light on this problem !

Water leaks can be a PITA to find as the water usually winds up far from the source of the leak.

You could have a leaky back glass and a trunk seal. You may have to get into the trunk with a light and have someone flood the area with a garden hose to simulate the leak.

Also check for any known bulletins/trouble spots.

That bulletin might be worth talking to the Mazda dealer with and getting a copy to see if it matches your symptoms.

You might want to check the door drain holes in the bottom of the doors. As Joe sez, can be a PITA. You have to be persistant on these kind of leaks. You can find these in unbelievable places.
