Help Wet seatbelt

HI, anyone had this problem. Every time it rains a decent amount I pull out the seatbelt and it's wet. Obviously a leak somewhere but I've looked and looked and can't see anything obvious. Anyone any thoughts?

Your auto closing driver's window isn't closing properly when you park up and the rain is getting in. Had this a couple of times on mine.

I had this on my last 156.

It was caused by a rust hole in the floor directly below the seat belt mounting which was allowing water to spray in from the front wheels.

Mine was doing the same on the passenger side, started leaking onto my headlining too, was the door seal not sealing properly, maybe because its old or whatever, i pulled off the door seal, squirted some silicone sealant into various areas, mainly in the corner next to the pillar where you will see an obvious gap leading to under the headlining, i then replaced the door seal and its been fine since.
