Dreaded wet floor problem 05 LTD

Well, the 98 did it, the 99 did it, now the 05 is doing it...
The floor on the passenger side is wet !!
This time though , there is trace of water comming out of the cover for the grab handle (or oh sh*% handle as we all know it).
Any idea where this water is comming from, before I end up pulling the roof liner down?

Has it been raining? Car wash? Do you have a sunroof?

I'm just trying to figure out if it's outside water getting in, or if it's something else.

Regardless, there is a TSB about this:

There are a number of TSB’s for this fault
2305004 is for the sunroof drain tubes
2304006 is for the sunroof glass not flush to roof
2305005 superseded by 2302606 is for door secondary seal.
Any or all of these could be your fault
All the best

Let me start by saying I was only at the carwash because of strict water restrictions !!

That being said, I had this problem a few weeks ago. Was caused by an over eager blower at the local drive thru carwash. There are two blower nozzles that point directly down at the sun roof. They push the sunroof down quite a bit (about 1/4 inch) while drying the car. On a day I had had the car washed it rained heavily and I got water inside. Dripping from the passenger side grab handle and from the homelink buttons. I think that the glass had just stuck in the "pushed down" position. Once I opened and closed it, it seemed fine and has not leaked again since.
