I have the same problem on my 2004. it is not the weather stripping. it is your front roof rack plastic covers. you need to put a bead of silicone around the base of the roof rack plastic covers. also on the 2 screws on the top of the roof rack rail. if that doesn't solve a problem in check your sunroof drain hose. it lives behind the plastic piece going down the inside of your windshield.
