Oh no...I didn't catch that part. So you have a leak on the headliner and you don't have a sunroof? Is that right?
And where exactly do you think the leak starts? Is it near the front of the headliner, or on the side, or.....
My only guess at this point is that a roof leak on a car without a sunroof as either got to be a windshield seal leak up top there, or if not that, then a leaking seam where they didn't weld it properly.
you might have to drop the headliner in that case.

When the area becomes saturated, you can feel it almost all along the area just above the side window all the way to the windshield. The wettest point is in the corner before the windshield. When there is a lot of rain (which we've had) it becomes so saturated that a drip of water starts & that's how my seat gets wet. I just wonder if going to all the expense of replacing what looks like a perfectly good windshield may end up being a waste of time & money and in the end the origin of the leak will be in the area above the side window. It's like exploratory surgery. I'll just be having guys replacing stuff till the leak stops. It seems like there should be a more efficient way to solve the problem.

Have Honda Accord 1995- recently, when I pulled the rear passenger side seat belt, got water on the seat. There is water in the trunk too- seems water is entering from the underbelly- any ideas?

What makes you think the water is coming in from below the car?
I would look for a bad rear windshield seal, or a dried out/cracked gasket between the trunk lid and the trunk.

Yes you could have clogged cowl drains, if you have mysterious puddles on the floor of the car and they don't appear to be related to the weather on that day.

the cowl under the windsheild wipers is full of water, the fresh air ducts are located in the lowest point, any accumulation of water will result in at least a small amount getting into the ducts, I also have A 99 jetta and it just started doing that, the fall leaves clogged up the cowl drains
