    Could it be water dripping in the sunroof due to a blocked roof drain. Sit in the car get a friend o turn on a garden hose, run the hose around the roof and around the front windscreen and door ( to ensure the door seal and window seals are good).

    No, when that was discovered it we didnt have no ran. Most likely I would have had water stains on the fabric if it was from the sunroof. I will check on the windshield,
    Is there history of this car's a/c water drain tray of cracking?

    I have a similar issue. I was driving in the rain, no leak from top. But water buildup inside the car. I noticed this a multiple times. The longer the drive, larger build-up of water pool.

    It is the split in the 2 parts of the evaporator housing . Pull the console and seal it with some silicone or JB Weld and no more water mine did that and I
    got it fixed doing just that
