Have you got a sunroof fitted? If so it could be a blocked drain.

Worth checking the door card as well. If the bottom of the door inside of the door seal is wet then it could be the waterproof membrane behind the door card has detached. Check all the drains on the bottom of the door itself are clear.

Another area to check is the scuttle area under the bonnet ahead of the windscreen where the brake fluid reservoir etc are. There are drains there that are also known to fill up with crud. You’ll need to remove the plastic scuttle trim to really get at them.
:ant: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

Thanks for your info I have already tested the scuttle area by pouring water down and it drains away quite quickly under the car, I will check the other points you raised fingers crossed.
