Default Wet floorboards. Fixes not working. Help!

2006 LR3 SE - I've had water soak both driver and passenger side floorboards over the past several years. I have recently replaced both sunroof drain hoses and replaced the lower windshield cowl. Just had a big rain and guess what, the floorboards were wet. Not soaked, but damp. What am I missing? Where else could water be getting in?

Thanks!

There are typically three entry points:
Sunroof drains (front and rear)
Cowl
A-pillars

Did you service the exterior a-pillar trim?

its only like $100 total. worth it to just buy new A pillar covers. Thats almost certainly where its coming from.

30 second repair and no tools needed. just pull the old ones off, line the new ones up and hit em down with your palm

Have you blown out the AC drains on both sides?

I have not done that. I ended up changing the A pillars and no longer have water in the floorboards. But guess what, we had a gigantic rain last week and there was water in the dome light. That has never happened. So now I've got to figure that out...

Sunroof drains.

They're on the L and R front corners of the sunroof tray.

Passenger side exits behind the side grille. Pop off the grill and snip the end off the drain (clog point).

Drivers side is a little trickier. Pop off the wheelwell shield and reach up towards the steering wheel in that cavity. Best bet is a razor blade to add slices.

Also blow air from the top through the drains to clear it out
