SOURCE: rain getting into rear lights
Clean the area around the light and on the body of the car where the light fits in the area for the gasket.. You can lightly grease the gasket on both sides before fitting the gasket and appling the light cluster to the body work. Do not over tighten the fixing nuts/bolts.
On very serious cases I have used silicon sealant in place of the grease. Be careful if you go this route because you may need to replace the light clusters and will need to be careful when taking them off not to do any damage to the paint work.
This solution has worked on Ford, Vauxhall and VW in the past. I know it is a pain having a boot full of water. I hope this information is helpful to you.

SOURCE: Pontiac Montana 2004 Leak
I turned on the fan inside and closed everything up, went outside and poured soapy water around everywhere. I found bubbles at the mirrors and and the top of the windshield. Also a "Tech" told me that under the door rubber at the driver and passenger sides there is a piece of tape that is supposed to cover two assembly holes on either side but doesn't, so I caulked it and solved the leak that comes out the map lights. I also found that there was a crack in the sealer along the firewall to passenger inside fender allowing water to collect int the wiring channel causing the dreaded "lock" problem, which I had fixed by the dealer but they didn't fix the leak. The dealers and "Jet-set Execs"are the reason GM is hurting as their vans are OK. The fix was spraying RV Roof\Gutter sealant from the front after removing the wiper cover and spraying waaay in. Now I need to fix the one on the front that comes in above the passengers left foot and makes a spiders haven behind the centre cowl. Jim

do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?

check the grill area under the windscreen ,, you should be able to acess this with the bonnet open,, there are 2 drains to allow water to be drained ,,, these can get blocked by leaves and dirt causing water to build up and get into the car through the heater
