I am in the process of diagnosing the same problem with my Clio. Also 1994.

I have removed all the headlining material today. Although the circular surround at the base of the aerial is craked and loose it isn't leaking.

The fault is with the sunroof.

Don't be distracted by plenty of posts in this forum saying that it's a blocked drainage channel from the sunroof to the front wheel arches.
THERE ARE NO SUCH DRAINAGE CHANNELS. Having removed all the headlining all I can see is flat roof around the sunroof.

The fault is either the seal on where the glass seats when it is closed or where the whole unit seats on the roof itself.

I suspect the latter and water is getting forced under the plastic trim that surrounds the sunroof on the roof of the car.

More tests this week will decide which.

Regards and good luck
