Help? E92 M3 Truck leak I cant track down

So I followed this to a tee.

https://www.bmwrepairguide.com/bmw-e...-leak-bmw-e90/

When testing the leak it certainly appeared the leak was coming from the taillight. I did the fix and it appeared to be fixed when testing with a water hose. Problem solved. Or so I thought. Got a huge storm and low and behind tons water in the amp area again. WTF.

Any other suggestions here? I need this leak fixed like yesterday. Many thanks

Yeah I may try that. I can't imagine how water is still getting in through the taillights holes at this point but worth a shot.
