Rear glass, or tail light housings...........

Run water over the whole rear of the car, and see if you can locate it coming in.

maybe there are some body plugs underneath the trunk check under your carpet and look to see if there are any black rubber plugs. Thats my guess this happens only when it rains and your not driving ?

acutually i went to my trunk last night and it was doing it, its just whenever theres moisture outside because it wasn't raining but it felt like precipitation in the air, so i guess it always could be going from the bottom or somthing, because its not on the top of my trunk taht i feel rain, its just on the bottom.
