Default Leaking Windshield

Right above the steering wheel there seems to be a leak that drips onto the drivers side seat there is no visible damage to the seal but that does not mean it is not there. Has anyone else had problems with the windshield leaking and what would be the best fix. Thank you for any help. 2000 S40

Maybe it is the sunroof leaking?

I have had leaking screen surrounds on two non-Volvo vehicles. The first one was sold with the leak. The other was fixed with Capt. Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure.

Not a joke, all the info, including US distributor, is here: http://www.captaintolley.com/.

It does work, but bear in mind the inlet for the water may not be near where it drips out so it may take more than one application.

Thank you for the responses I will give it a try and Tech I first thought it was the sunroof but noticed water running down the inside of the windshield when driving.
