Hi Gill, if the garage are sure the drain channels are clear, its probably comming in thru the aerial mounting. very common on these motors.
The proper way to resolve it is to remove the head linning which allows access to the mounting, but you could try smearing sealant around the outside of the unit where it meets the roof.

Hi it could be the rubber sunroof seal or the seal between the car roof and the black plastic surround of the sunroof.

Take a look at sunroof repairs.co.uk, they have sorted mine out in the past. I tried temporary fixes but in the long run its best left to the professionals.
