Yes. So the black trim that runs from windshield to rear on each side, there are a bunch of clips. Unclip them all and remove the trim. What you’ll see under there is the seam that has been welded. After welding in factory, they ran a liquid sealant along that seam and THAT is what is failing and letting the water seep in. That sealant has deteriorated Or was sloppily applied from the beginning (see the service bulletin from Honda regarding this above)

Clean it all up and run some type of silicone along that seam. I was at my wits end and ended up using the As Seen On TV FlexSeal I grabbed from Lowe’s. Has not leaked since! I honestly scoured the internet for this, all forums pointed me in the wrong direction, no one local could figure it out. I was desperate. I wish I took video or took pictures but I just followed the Service bulletin diagram and got it done pretty quick. Longest time spent is the drying of the new sealant.

also the clips are cheap online if you end up breaking any
