    Use a hose to test.. or if you have access to air, spray soapy water on the outside and blow compressed air around seams around exterior as well. You'll see & hear the difference and sometimes bubbles depending on if hit right.

    Are they any holes under the vent thing where the wipers are that could leak?

    Drain holes on the fresh air trough in front f windshield. Drain hoes on a sun roof if you have one.

    Hello,
    I had the same issue in the past weeks.
    A lot of water coming in on the driver side, less on the passenger side.
    Seemed to be rain water crawling between rubber and windshield.
    Solution was removing chrome window trim and adding sealant between window and rubber. Re-install chrome trim and finished. Good luck !
