sunroof leak tips needed

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

It seems like the passenger side rear drain hole in the sunroof might be plugged or draining slow. I can put water through it but it trickles, it comes out a lot more through the front.

I've taken some weed whacker type line and run it through the front drains.

I can't figure out how to reach the drain holes in the back, and it's hard to see under there. Do I need to go get a mechanics mirror or is there a simple way to find the drain hole?

Thanks!

There should be some information in the archives on this we have discussed it quite a bit. If I recall, Jason and Regis posted info. I do recall that you should not use compressed air to clean the lines however.

Hey I found this, it was REGIS. Here is the thread, you will see Regis thanking Scotty (that is me under my prior name) for providing a link to a sunroof thread. Good info here

The rear seat on the passenger side had some water under it. Cleaned up the water.

I took the rear headliner off and followed the hose, it was connected to the sunroof just fine. Followed it down to the trunk and the drain ends were plugged with dirt and crud. Cleaned both sides out and seems to clear up the problem.
