Hello, the most common cause for this is that the drain tubes at the front corners of the suunroof frame are either split or came loose from the plastic tube connectors on the sunroof frame, this allows water to leak inside the "A" pillars.

You'll need to drop the sunroof down at the front enough to see and reach where the drain tubes are connected, remove the sunvisors and any overhead control panels in the front as well as the plastic pillar covers, this should allow enough access to the area to inspect and possibly re attach the tubes using small clamps.
