Clio 3 door 1.2 mk2 water under ns squab.

I have recently bought a 2002 1.2 16v. The only issue the car has is a water leak that pools in the oblong indent in the base of the hollow that the rear seat squab sits in to. Having ran coloured chalk round the upper edge, I have learned that it is coming from the rear past the silver 'cap' with the plate around it. There is limited water under the trim from below the rear light to where it seeps over to the 'cap'. The boot carpet and spare well are bone dry.
The car is parked on our drive and tilts slightly forward and to the os front. It seems to leak when heavy rain falls and the car is stationary. It does have a sunroof, but all the foot wells are also dry.
I did read that the rear lights can leak, but having checked the foam seals they seem fine and intact.
All help from the more knowledgeable gratefully accepted.
