primarily after rain and snow

Okay, there is a known cause for the type of leak you are having on your RX330 and Lexus has released a service bulletin dealing with it and the needed repair. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below for your review. have a look at it as it very likely applies.

cant open link from my current location ... but this must be the back door strut mounting issue.. correct

The file should open as long as you are not behind a firewall. It is the service bulletin for the seal at the strut mount.
