My moon roof is leaking from the right side rear. When I prop it open I pull slightly from the leftside and it feels tighter then the rightside. The rightside is very loose and does not shut all the way up. What can I replace or adjust? Or do I need to take apart the moon roof to find the problem?

The motor and module is in front of the moon roof window, under the headliner. You can pull the liner down to work on it, but be careful not to pull it so far that it breaks. If the cables are broke or really loose, you have to remove the liner. Replace the regulator. Most times it is the module. It can be replaced without removing the liner.
Once source of leaks is the rubber tube that runs from the roof line to the rear hatch, and contains the rego plate light, rear window heater and locking circuits. Look at the seals under the hatch hinges. If there's nothing obvious, pull some of the internal headers to see where the water is coming from. May still be the moon roof. Water will run down any available slope.
Unfortunately the car's Japanese not German...ahem. We find with our RX that if you fully open it, and then slide it about an inch forward it stops the buffeting. Another alternative is open a window slightly.
You have to reset the windows and sunroof after you change the battery. For windows open the driver half way and close the window up and hold the up switch for few seconds. If that don't work open the rear window from rear switch and that should work.
For moon roof open the moon roof and keep the hold the open button pressed for 10 seconds. Then close the moon roof and hold the close button pressed for 10 seconds
If you can access the top side of the tube without removing the moon roof, you can take an air compressor hose with a rubber nozzle, jam the tip in the hose and blast it with quick bursts of air. To insure that you got the blockage out, pour some water in that area and watch around the wheel well for the water to flow out.
check the bottom of the glass to see if there is any dirt in the way also make sure they put sealend on the inside of the were the tube makes contact with the cars frame. also check to see if there is any little holes or tares around it
