Hi Poss. I see youv'e checked the inlet area in front of the bonnet - did you pour some water in to see if it was escaping quickly - when driving especially in heavy rain the water can come in quicker than it can escape (the least amount of blockage can cause probs). My next move would be to check around the rear lights as they are prone to leakage around the seals. You'll need to clear the boot area (carpets and all unnnecssary kit). Dry the area best you can then cover the floor area with a light sprinkle of talcum powder. Either hose the rear of the vehicle working from the bottom up ot wait the next bout of rain (that won't take long) Any ingress of water should leave a clear mark on the talced area. If this doesn't help at least you've made the car smell nice. Let us know how things go!
