Default Name that water leak!

the last few times it has rained, the headliner gets soaked towards the front by the windshield. the passenger side gets the worst of it, but sometimes it goes all across. i've noticed it runs down the passenger side a-pillar and then drips on the floor. sometimes it even drips onto the driver seat/center console area.

i checked the t-top weatherstripping and it looks good--no cracks or crushed spots. the weatherstrip around the windshield looks alright too, though i haven't taken it off and looked under it yet. any ideas?

There are miles of weatherstripping in that area. I'd suggest sitting inside while a friend with a garden hose blasts the outside of the car.

Thats all you CAN do is remove trim and watch while someone hoses it down. Unless someone elses crystal ball is working.
