    Someone I think had the same problem & found the end caps of the roof runner trim were to blame. Hope this helps ...

    This could be a good place to start as I think this sorts it out in the end or at least sends you in the right direction http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38539 ..

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 26000

    Default

    It could be one of four problems which cause this:

    1: Rear lights

    2: Rear Quarter Light Windows

    3: Aerial base seal

    4: Rear roof runner clips

    I just had the same issue and found it to be the roof runner, the rivet that holds the clip in can bee loose and lets the water in, I cleaned it out(was full of dirt) and put a bead of silicon sealant around the clip and on the rivet.

    Dried out the car (make sure you dry out all the C column) and hey presto, leak solved. I also re-sealed the quarter light glass just incase.

    HTH
