Default Water spots on the right side of my headliner???

I have what look like white water marks on the right side of my headliner. Anyone know the best way to get em out. I think I found the spot where the water is coming from, but give me some opinions. I believe that it is from the top of the molding by the door, but just above it, where the silver molding is that goes around the car.

I know Mom doesn't have a sunroof. Do you?

Otherwise, it'* door trim. You have to figure out where it'* coming from. Wind and a wet finger are the best ways.

If your water spots are white edged, it'* an old leak. If it'* still dry, try some lime-away diluted 50% with water to kill the spots. Try it on an inconspicous spot first. Try pulling your passenger side A-pillar trim, and try some of the mix on a small area hidden by this trim.

Spray it on, let it sit, then rub it off with a clean dry towel. Follow up with 100% water for a rinse, and blot it dry. See if this works for you.
