Another water ingress one! But with a different cause!

Right then!
Got a car with a wet through drivers carpet, usual b5 shite I know! So I go through all the usual suspects, scuttle drains clear, pollen filter box and ecu box sealed. Car has no sunroof. Blah blah blah.

So spent ages trying to pinpoint the leak.
I've now found where it's coming from into the cabin. It's coming through the foam grommet where the door wiring loom comes through the A pillar.






Now here's where I'm getting stuck!

It's actually passing through between the foam and the body, not coming down the wiring through the centre, so not travelling from the door.
My question it has anyone seen this before as I can't quite see how water would get into the A pillar cavity and onto the foam then into the car! I immediately thought the rubber gaiter between the door and the pillar. But this is all sealed and water tight.

Any suggestions please fire them over!

it,ll be coming through the bonnet release cable grommet, ive seen loads do this , clean the little drain gap between the ecu box and turret and park the car facing downhill and I bet it stops. if you want another cable with a sound grommet ive a few here.

Defo not bonnet cable and/or grommet. I forgot to put that in my first post. It's not that cause I tended to that with the ecu and pollen filter housing job.
