Been dealing with a water issue with my 2017 Explorer. Water from rain is entering the front passenger area. It is trickling in from the front ride side of the passenger compartment. I was able to observe this by pulling back carpet. I have checked and cleared the two rubber boot drains in the front cowling which did not solve issue. Anyone have any familiarity with this issue?

Do you have the panorama window in the roof? My 2011 Acadia had the same issue and it was coming in from the panorama window, running down the frame and dripping on the passenger side floor. It's a long shot I know.
I had a first year Saturn that leaked from a seam in the firewall. Both were production defects.
A good automotive glass shop should have someone who is good at leak detection. I would call around to independent shops not national chains.

We don't think its from panorama roof as drains have been checked and water tested. Been able to pull back front carpet and lining from fire wall so I should be able to get a good sense where its coming from with a good rain event coming Monday. Thanks for input.

There are rubber drain tubes below the hood line that are notorious for getting plugged with leaves and debris. Clear them with an airline. Should solve your issue
