My 2014 forester with 5000 miles has a large stain on the inside of the moon roof area and on the upholstery above the passenger side rear door. dealership says it is from the car wash I use??? It looks like windshield wiper fluid??? the care wash doesn't use a color in their soap. Any thoughts?

Sorry this is almost a week old.. So, on my 03 & 04 foresters the drains are at the front corners (and possibly the rear corners but I just don't know) of the moon roof. Just open the moon roof and look on top of the car inside the usually hidden area. I don't know where the drain goes but I had one clog and leak all in the car during down pour rain. I used small 16-18g wire and shoved it down through the drains and fixed it. So you either have the leaking WWF or a clogged drain. ..car was soap is usually clear, right?
