Yes, there are vents below the rear lights that need sorting.

There is lots of info on here, you will need to search as I can't remember where it is!!!

Put dust into the search and check out dustproofing NP, Sharkcavers solution with the rear vents below the tail lights works.
I sealed mine right up and no more dust. Also check the seal round the back door.

Also fit a cabin filter to trap any dust that may enter

Most unlikely the dust is getting past the tail lights.
Re-read the 2 posts before you last one

The dust will be entering the cabin through vents on either side, below the tail lights, tucked in behind the bumper.

Smile Dust Free

Hey I Finally Fixed the Rear Dust Exhaust Vents under the Tail Lights on my NP ! Took about an Hour, had to remove the rear bumper away from the rear of the Paj, the Vent Dust Flap on the L/H side was Folded Neatly up under the flap above ! No Wonder the Paj is getting Dust in. Cleaned off all the dust and gave it a good wipe over, cut out some old trim felt to fit Neatly over the outside of the vent and Duct Taped it on. Should be All Good from now on. Now for that A/C Panel Filter Mod........

I just siliconed the rear vents shut. Doesn't need them open once its 10yrs old as all the door seals are a bit tired anyway and it stops a crap load of dust coming in.
