That used to happen to mine too but on the passenger side behind the front seat. Mine had a fist size hole under the windscreen on the passenger side and rust under the tailgate rubber but it always amazed me how much water would pool up there, but no obvious track of water of how it got there. My fix was to just leave some really obsorbent sponges where the water layed and ring them out when it pooled up.

If you love your cordia and want it too last keep an eye on the rust and problems and fix them asap, I wish i did :(

I had a leak through the side air vent , but trying to find where the water
is tracking from can be difficult. I stripped out the interior and waited for some rainy days
as putting the hose on the car didn't make it leak like the rain did.

i think it may be the air vent like you say.

i have checked all the body work and there are no rust holes like other cars have had so it must be the vents may be i should cover them up might fix it

found the leak people will be posting pics soon on how to fix it

it seams that the vents have a very strange set up where the ruber lets go after a few
what i am going to try is cover it with plastic and silicon it in so it sould seal it up
