Water Leaking into car near side view mirror

Hello everyone, I been dealing with leakage in my car for months now and finally decided to try to fix it. The water is falling in near the side view mirror, falls inside the door panel and alot of the water collects inside of the door panel compartment (a couple inches, so pretty substantial amount). Luckily the water collects inside of the compartment and doesn't fall onto the carpet. The driver panel doesn't have the 'water vapor' covering foam but the amount of water falling in is so substantial that it doesn't seem normal at all, You can even see the water falling and hitting the window motor(i know that can't be good). Any ideas ? I also attatched a picture to show where the water in falling in from. I have a feeling its seeping in wear the window meets the plastic triangle of the side view mirror, where it makes a right angle because only when I pour water in that area does i see it start to leak.
