On my way home today, I noticed there was a brown streak on my rearview mirror and looked up a the headliner and noticed there are brown spots. It kind of looks like something leaked through the headliner onto the rearview mirror. Has anyone seen this happen? Any suggestions on what I should do?

Any chance someone opened a can of some sort of beverage and it sprayed ? Does seem odd, but not sure what would be leaking all the way through.

Very unlikely. It’s only there and I don’t think there has ever been a can in the car.

IMO the streak doesn't really line up with the spots which leads me to believe that something happened inside of the vehicle.

I'm specifically referring to the tiny spot above the streak and the size of the streak here.

From the picture, I agree. But I think the spots looked bigger in the car. I need to figure out how to clean the spots and see if they reappear.

Be very careful because you can stain that material if you use the wrong cleaning product. Has anyone reported anything similar at all? I haven't really heard of any leaking like this but it might be possible if you somehow have a leak I suppose.
