Default 2005 Silverado Interior Leak

I have a 2005 Crew Cab 2500HD Silverado. I found the carpet was wet on both the driver and passenger side. I pulled the carpet up and have found the water collecting at the front of the door frame, but I'm not sure where it is coming in. The water collected when I sprayed water along the bottom of the windshield, but I'm not 100% convinced that the seal is bad on the windshield since the water doesn't leak down the fire wall. Pictures are of the passenger side.

Has anybody seen this before?

If it has a removable cowl panel take it off and clean the drain out, they could be plugged with leaves and crud. Make sure the drain for the ac is clean and working properly.

If it has a sun/moon roof make sure the drains are clean and routed properly.

Check your door seals out for signs of water trails, chevys leak a lot of air and water around the doors, especialy extended cabs.

Check the seams for signs of a poor repair from a accident. Look for abnormal spots in the seam sealor or spots that have been repaired.
I have seen cars come from the factory with a seam that wasnt caulked on the line properly.

Check the bottom of your doors and make sure the drains are not plugged with leaves and stuff.

Sometimes you can use a spray bottle full of soapy water and compressed air to find your leak. Have someone spray it down and hit it with a blowgun while you watch for bubbles on the inside with a flashlight.

Sprayable foot powder works great for trailing leak paths.

Looks like the lower hinge is pulled away from the A-pillar, is it?

No, the hinge is solid and working fine.

I also found a leak at the rear window.

I have an appointment this week to get the rear window and windshield seals inspected and hopefully repaired.

yeah, found two leaks on the rear window. Then I found that the boot around the wiring between the door and the body was leaking. I resealed that last night and haven't seen any water in the front since.
