Wet Driver's Seatbelt

2016 Versa sedan 5 speed. Got in the car this morning and went to put the driver's seatbelt on and it was wet. It rained all day here yesterday. My windows and doors were fully closed. This also happened about 2 months ago after another rain storm. I checked the interior door panels and floors but there isn't any water pooling anywhere that I can see.
Has anyone had this problem? Is there a quick check I can do (door drain clogged) before having to take it to the dealer? All door molding is there and was dry. I can't figure out where the leak is coming from. Only the seatbelt (only the part that retracts into its housing) is wet.

Interesting... No sunroof right? Are the black rails on top on well? I know of a honda that did this and it was a plastic piece of trim that went on the a pillar on the outside of the car next to the windshield to the roof.

Either way with it being soo new Id go to the dealer.

No sunroof. Yes the black rails are secure on the top. All of the door molding is on and was also dry after I noticed the wet seat belt. The only thing I can find wet was the seatbelt itself and only the part of the belt that is retracted into its housing. Since the car is under warranty I don't want to take any of the plastic door pillar covers apart. I guess I'll just have to have the dealer look at it. I had a problem with a new 07 Tacoma 4x4 PU years ago. The passenger front floorboard was collecting water after rain and car washes. Toyota had my new truck for 3 months before they could fix the issue. I was hoping to avoid a repeat of that with Nissan. I have owned my Versa since Oct 3, 2016 and the wet seatbelt has only happened twice. The first time I thought I was crazy. Lol
We are supposed to get some more heavy rain again this weekend. I'll post if it happens again. I guess if I end up taking the car to the dealer it would be a good time to have them check the 4 wheel alignment. The car still feels unsafe on the highway. Other than these two issues I love the car. Still glad I bought it.
