Wink Passenger floor/headliner/sunroof? Water Leak

Heavy rains here in Oregon have caused my 2002 325xi to start leaking, and I'm not sure from where.
It started with the floorboard on the passenger side getting wet under the door, now the water is coming under the back seat AND dripping from the top corners if the interior front pillars.

Sounds like maybe the sunroof drains? How do I check these and any other suggestions.....

The passenger side window was replaced a few years ago due to a break-in, but no problems since then, just recently having problems with water leaks.

Thanks!! It's making me crazy!

The drains on my car get clogged every so often with leaves and road dirt and need to be cleaned out. I can tell when the floor rugs start getting damp after a heavy rain that its time again.

Do a search on the thread titled 'Mystery Water Leak' or something like that - there was much discussion about this not too long ago in this forum. Could be other issues as well, but check out that thread for more ideas. Good Luck.
