Leak on the C-pillar

Just got back from a trip and it rained hard on the way. When getting my baggage I found water dripping from the "Airbag" button cover on the C-pillar. It's a coupe and I don't even have a sunroof. Whats the cause?

High-strung version: Might consider trading as This car loves water and still leaks after many dealer fixes and attempted myself once. Now the pillar?!!! What next?

could the 1/4 windows be leaking or possibly the rear window? really the only places that would leak that high up. should be able to use a garden hose or pressure washer on a nice day and recreate the leak

How many times has the dealership tried to address this without being successful? When was the most recent?
