Default leak from left rear passenger reading lamp?

I went to the car wash just now and while the high pressure water was spraying the car, water began to leak from the bottom of the rear passenger's reading lamp. after i finished i looked around the door seal and all seemed ok... Where could this be coming from?

The moonroof drains pass near there (99% sure). Could be a hole or a the drain hose came undone.

At the least the C-pillar trim will have to be pulled off to expose the black rubber hose, you can check it for cracks and such that way. At the most, the head liner will have to be removed to check that the black rubber hose is well connected to the moonroof assembly tub. If this is the case I really hope for your sake that you have a hatchback since it makes taking out the liner much easier than in the sedan.

It's been a little while since I've visited that part of the car. Best of luck.
