most likely the rear pocket. if you look just behind the door on the outside of the car thats it, leaves and things like to collect in there. There are also plastic drain tubes that run through the car and out the bottom. if they are clogged it will over flow run out and puddle behind the seats. remove the cover over the spare tire and youll be able to see it all.
