Water leaking around A-pillar

When it rains I get water leaking around the A-pillar on the passenger side. Not sure how it is getting in. Sunroof? Windshield? Any ideas?

You may have to trace it by sending water down into the sunroof bed; you might have a sunroof drain plugged. or pull the A pillar cover off and see where the trail originates from.

^this, pull off the cover, it just snaps into place. see if you can see any marking on the sound deadener and just look for water damage, you can also cut a strip of paper, run a line down the middle of food colouring. let it dry, and then put it under the a pillar cover, the leaking water will streak and show you where its coming from lol. (it works i just did it to a friends car)
