Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many possible sources for a water leak. It's possible that the issue could be found visually but water testing will likely be necessary. The issue could be a door seal or door that isn't closing properly, a crack or void in body or windshield/back glass sealer, it could be coming in through the trunk or if it happens when driving then it could be coming in through the floor, or it could be a sunroof issue. Water will often travel far from it's entry point to where it collects. One notable case I had was a void in windshield sealer that was causing water to collect only in the right rear floor.
