Sun roof leak

I have wet carpeting on the drivers side at the base of the dead pedal after every rain. Reading the forums would point to drain line coming loose for the sun roof. I pulled the headliner back found things seemed to be hooked up. I have poured water directly into the sunroof tray but nothing leaked into the passenger compartment and instead drained below the car as desired. Heavy rainstorm later in the day and the carpeting is wet again. Are there other seals in the sunroof which would allow water to drain down the pillar to cause this?

There are 4 sunroof drains. They are at the "corners" of the sunroof. Use a coat hanger to clean them out.

In my car it was a problem with the vaporbarriers in the front door. A previous owner had done some repairs and did them back with only tape. Might be wort checking.
