Carpet behind drivers seat soaking wet every time it rains?

We have a 2008 G6 GT coupe that we purchased used with about 30k on it, and amongst a few other issues that ive had to fix, im currently at this issue and can not find the solution. So recently it has been raining quite a bit, my girlfriend got out of the car, and took her purse off the floor behind the drivers seat and it was soaked, so i pulled the floor mat, soaked, and hung it to dry and dried up the left over water from the floor. I briefly looked for leaks but saw no signs of water coming in anywhere near it. A week or so went by, and it started raining again pretty hard, i looked to see if there was any signs of leaks this time, and there was a substantial amount of water on the floor behind the drivers seat again. I can not see any areas around the door that show signs of water leaking, or around the quarter window, rear window, etc. Has anyone else had this kind of problem before? I want to fix it before it gets that pungent wet/moldy smell. Any suggestions from someone that has dealt with a similar issue would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Yes, it does have a sunroof. I did some research and saw a few instances where the same thing was occurring, they said the same thing about the drain tubes. Thanks for the help. Looks like ill be calling the dealer to bitch again. Its like im calling every week since we got it, about a new stupid problem. I can fix it, i just dont feel like i should have to. Ugh.

Hey, mine just started to do the same. My seatbelts were soaked yesterday! Im gunna see if the drain tubes are blocked. How would i blow them out? Or would they be blocked just at the sunroof. Obviously an air compressor could be used but could it damage anything?

The most common problem is that their so dam short they pull away from the coupler. You just need to re-connect them.

They're probably not blocked. The drain tubes are really tubes, I think there's 3 of them connected end to end but they are way too short and can become disconnected.

So where do they run? At a place where i can get at them easily to reconnect them?
