    Anyone ever run across water staining on the A-Pillar. In my case I just had a small one (about the size of my thumb) appear on the passenger side A-Pillar by the plastic airbag button.

    Interior?

    Pull it and check source. It may be an improper seal on the pano roof and its trickling down the a pillar

    I have a similar stain on the headliner a little further back. It was definitely from the pano roof leaking as Tesla needed the car for 8 days to fix the leak. Since then I've been waiting 6 months on a back ordered headliner to fix the stain.

    Definitely tell Tesla and good luck with the fix.

    I had a leak and stain on the passenger B-pillar, twice, before they found and fixed the leak. Both times they had the headliner cleaned, not replaced and it looks like new.
