I have noticed there is some water on the Luggage Compartment Cover after rain.
I have been reading the posts about sunroof leakage, but I don't think that is the cause.
Can it be from the roof bars?
The water is only in the left side and I can see water also on the left roof panel on the sealing (just near the back door).

Anyone have had similar problem and has a good idea how to fix it?

I vote for the GPS antenna hole leaking then running down the headliner.

Today was once again raining and I had time to check the leakage.
In my case it came from the rubber hose between the roof and back door.
The sealing was very dirty and some rust had already began to appare.
Cleaned.... so let's see what happens on the next rain.

If this not solve the problem, i have a idea.
In my case it was a seeling for roof-bars.





On rain or in car-wash it drops on the Luggage Compartment Cover.
You can see it better when you disassemble the rear cover from headlining.

You guessed correctly, water is still coming...

But it is coming from the middle.
And then the water drops to the plastic panel (where is the roof lamp) and goes to the left side and drips from the panel junction.

I vote for the GPS antenna hole leaking then running down the headliner.
If it's the antenna should the ceiling (soft) panel be wet? Now it's dry.

Maybe need to take some panels out and try with hose and look were it comes from.

I know exactly where the water is coming from - the rear sunroof drains. Check and see what happens when you pour water down the rear drains - it'll run down the headliner and then exit the tail light junction box.

Now I realized my driver side (RHD so for most of you passenger side) mat and insulation is full of water.

Deanni: How did you remove the roof bars? More photos.

I had that problem. Mine dripped from the plastic trim and nowhere near the headliner. Remove the plastic trim, then one at a time, unscrew the flanged nuts apply sealant around the base of the screw, re-torque the nuts.

Check the tailgate nuts.
