Hi B Max Mike, sorry for the slow reply, been so busy lately. Further to what's been posted, See attached. 1st 2 pics show the retainer that holds the sides in.
The other pics show general stuff and how the smallest drops of water would be channelled straight down the side of the vent and straight into the car interior.
These were taken the morning after the reseal operation, hence the rear lights are in place.
Still in the process of refitting the interior, the carpet has been dry as a bone since.

Regards to all you happy B Max owners
(and the not so happy ones).

Not sure why the pics are on their sides, not done this sort of thing before!!!!

It seems we have the same problem! See my post on a similar issue...

What fooled us is that the wtaer was first discovered in the drivers footwell! ( Our driveway is on a slope)

I have just sat in a stripped out car in a rain storm and found the water is coming from the back of the boot all the way forward....even wicking up the soundproofing on the firewall.

I have yet to identify the source, but it's entering the boot from the lower of two small holes that go through to the area the vents operate in...even though our engineer taped those holes over last night!

At least the answer is near......

Can anyone tell me how to remove the painted panel that sits behind the rearmost side window? It seems two mounting holes there may have deteriorated washers which are letting the water into the rear inner arch and from there it gets past a sticky black bit of tape and gets EVERYWHERE!

Our engineer can't work out how to get the panel off for fear of it breaking.......

This image apparently shows what is under this panel:
