What is causing the problem? Sunroof and windows are properly closed. Could it be that the drainage pipes got blocked or crimped due to age? I can’t find diagrams on line that will help me clean them.

Cowl drains are plugged....Remove wipers and plastic cowl cover...It is probably packed up with leaves.
Has the windshield ever been replaced?

Windshield is original. I will tray removing wipers and plastic cowl cover. Do you know of a link to schematics to help me do that? Since I am not a mechanic, it would greatly improve my chances of success.
