    The drip rail would catch that though, it can't physically drip into the cabin directly.

    then maybe a water bead rolled off the roof while the car was in motion. Just seems more plausible; the corner of the sunroof probably lines up with that part of the seat.

    I'll check tomorrow.

    You're correct though that does line up, however just seems extremely odd I would have not noticed water dripping in like that.

    I've had a few drips land on my head during hard cornering or braking after the car has been left out in the rain. With the sunroof open, run your finger around above the headliner and feel for dampness or accumulated water. Any water means the drain holes or tubes are plugged.

    Backpacking off this thread since it’s been mentioned a fair bit: has Ford or someone else come out with a permanent fix solution for a leaky sunroof?

    I don't like the looks of this racer. I bet I've wrecked on more tracks than he's driven.

    So, turns out it's not the sunroof.

    The mark is still there even after being set to dry for Multiple days, definitely stained somehow.

    Anyone happen bro know what the part # Is for a new seat skin?

    Gonna be a pita trying to scrub this out, any suggestions? Soapy water I guess? Never worked with Alcantara.

    It’s made out of plastic, so I’d guess it’s designed to be cleaned easily, but I’ve never had to try. I’d use a product made for cars if you have any.
