I hope this is the right forum for this, I accidentally posted it before in the community help ?

I'm about to pull my hair out chasing this leak. I've narrowed it down to the passenger rear corner.
This is a shot in the dark, but I'm hoping someone can help before I just drill a drain hole in my jack storage. I've got a gen 1 wagon, at first I found a small leak coming from the antenna, tightened it and put some silicone, thought it fixed it, but after a big snow/rain storm, found my Jack swimming. I thought it might be the rear roof rack mount, so I pulled up the trim and layed down some silicone the whole length of the car. Still no luck.
I found where some drips are coming from, but have no idea how to seal it up or where the source is. There seems to be some type of expanded foam near the pinch welds.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm going crazy here. If you need other pics let me know.

Much appreciated

<Sorry about the double post>

I have a wagon too but no leaks so far. I don't really have any ideas but hopefully others will chime in. Good luck.

Update - I think I found the culprit. I pulled the rear door seal after finding nothing above the headliner & found a gap in the pinch weld that had rusted. It was just enough to let the water in drop by drop. Siliconed it all around the seam and fingers crossed it works, gonna wait a day or 2 before water testing it.

Huzzah!! Glad to hear you got it. Water leaks are tough to track down.
It was the worst! Was ready to drill a hole in my jack storage just to drain it. I really hope I got it and will have a non foggy car again.
