Why is my passenger seat belt wet when it rains? Why am I finding moisture on my dash?

If you got a sun roof, might be one or more water drains that could be clogged, there's drains in each of the corners witch makes 4 of them.
I've had a similar problem, and found a clogged drain at the back, used a pressured air hose to shoot the crap out of it. I need to check for water damage now.

I have the same problem on my drivers side (RHD). I'm pretty sure there is a little rust under the B-pillar cover that leaks water on the seat belt. If you don't want to do anything about it yet - as I dont - just wrap the seatbelt around the seat so you dont get a big wet sash across your chest.

My driver's side seat belt gets wet... Today, I pulled off the seat belt and panels but could not locate any rust or sign of where the water may be comming from. I thought it might be the outside plastic side pillar mounts, but they appear fine and my window moldings appear Ok as well.
After doing some searching on the forum, I am suspecting the driver's side rear soonroof drain is clogged. Does anyone know how to gain access the rear drain holes???? Do you have to pull down the headliner???

My drivers side does the same thing. I loop the belt over the e-brake to keep from getting a soggy shirt in the mornings.

Just to update my findings....I found two small cracks in the roof metal where the roof and rain cutters meet, (actually down in the gutter itself on BOTH sides of the car just above the outside B-pillar) I applied a small amount of force with my hand and pulled away from the car gently on the black trim. I looked down into the rain gutter and noticed a hairline crack opening as I applied the force. Both cracks were only about an inch long. I new right away that this is how the water is getting in and dripping onto my seatbelts. IT is directly above the pillars. I was Sooo happy to find these little buggers and that it was not my sunroof. If your gutters are filled with dirt I recommend wiping them out first and use a bright flashlight to peer down into the rain gutter while pulling back on the trim.
