When it rains, my rear carpets are getting soaked. Doors have been opened up to see if water barrier was damaged and was told they were not.
I have checked for leaves in sunroof holes but they look clear. Has anyone blown air down those drains, would those drains being plugged make only rear carpets wet??

Yeah, there are drain holes underneath the car behind the bottom of the doors those drains can also be blocked and if the rain is not continuous you'll never notice there is a backup.

Check yourself with a hose at the base of the window looking for drops out the bottom of the door card. The vapor barrier can be intact and leak a sieve; it’s the adhesive that usually fails not the barrier. There are TWO recent threads on the exact same issue.

OP a more simpler way is to look for water trails that will give a clear indication as to where the water is originating from.
Just open up the door.
No need for the sledge hammer approach.
