    Greetings,

    After a heavy rain, usually few days of non-stop rain when the car sits in the driveway, the driver’s seat belt is soaked with water.
    Nothing is wet inside the car. No stains in the ceiling, around the door, on the floor, on or around the B-Pillar. Everything is completely dry. Also, the part of the belt that is outside the B-Pillar is also dry.
    What seems to be wet is the part of the belt that is rolled on the end retractor at the bottom.
    Any idea what to look for?

    Thanks and Happy 4th!

    I don’t have a honda but I found this diagram of the seat belt https://www.hondapartsnow.com/parts-list/2005-honda-accord–4dr_ex_v6-ka_5at/interior_bumper/seat_belts.html
    I’d look for a leak inside the plastic covers on the column. Did you feel the floor to see if it is wet?

    Thank you Chris.
    I did not check the floor specifically but everything else around the belt and the door seal seems to be dry. I’ll try to remove the covers and check further.

    Thank you.

    I believe I found the culprit: the roof channel is a bit loose right behind the B pillar area. It did not get wet since I put the duct tape on.
