    rear lamp seals leaking...if you've got an SRi style rear lip spoiler they can leak and let water in to the boot via the 6 mounting holes...rear 1/4 light glass seals leaking...

    the best way to find it is to remove all the boot internal trim and to get someone to look for the leak, while someone else plays a hosepipe slowly over small areas of the car at a time..
