Moon roof trickle

Do all Moon Roofs trickle when in car washes? or raining? im told seals are fine and that it's normal long as it dont get into car? tha'ts why drains are there if theyre not blocked then thats ok..But Toyota say no should be sealed tight no trickle..I get mixed opinions about this.. They want to charge 1000k Toyota for new roof , but another person said no seals are not needing replaced, is that there General response Toyota? even i can see that the seals are ok...not worn. This is in upper passenger corner wonder if any other Rav4 Toyota trickle in?

    The moon roofs do not seal with the intent to eliminate water entry. The water IS admitted past the seal around the roof, and a tray under the roof glass captures and drains the water away, thru tubes. If you are getting water entry into the car, the first thing that I would be looking for is blocked drain holes on the extreme left and right front corners of the tray under the roof. Examine that area and let me know what you find.

Any leaks past the sun roof should be channeld to and down the drains.There are four drains.I would open the roof and pour some water in the track and make sure it all drains

My 2000 lincoln towncar, 2000, gets soak and wet on the floorboards every time it rains hard. I've been told it has something to do with the moon roof vents. I don't know what to do about it


Clear the drain tubes with compressed air. one on each side of the window at the back. But they can only let so much water out. If the seal on the window is bad, they won't be able to handle all the water, will leak inside. Those seals aren't cheap and are a pain to replace. If you don't use or need it to open. Shut it and silicone it on top. This will stop your problem.

Ford escape 2014 power moon roof barely tilts open


This is normal. The reason it raises higher is due to the design of the sliding arms in the moon roof. without going into too much detail, the reason it raises before closing is to "unlock" itself from from the "Locked" open Position in order to get to the "Locked" closed position. Its a fancy way of making it seal well when closed and not rattle when open

2009 F-150 moon roof stuck open/motor works


There should be some way to manually close it. Look at the owners manual for help. All Power roofs that I have seen, has a small trim cover hiding a bolt or something like that. All it takes is an Allen wench or socket to crank on and close it. For more details

I've got a '84 Supra and the sunroof does not open and close properly. The motor and switch are fine but the sunroof only closes partially and will not snap shut.


Sun roofs and moon roofs both have spring loaded guides at opposite sides and if they are worn or loose will affect yours from properly closing

I opened my moonroof on my 1995 Honda Civic EX and now, when I push the button to close it, I hear the system revving, trying to close it, but it won't close.


Either it' has not been used in some time and needs to be cleaned and lubricated or the motor for the moon roof is gone .....you can also check the side of the moon roofs motor to see if you can turn it up some to make it go faster ....hope it helps you out ...if not ...change the moon roofs motor

How do i go about fixing my leaky sunroof if everytime it rains my car if full of water inside? whats the first step please help


Most sun roofs have drains in the 4 corners of the roofs pan. Open the roof and look in the front corners to see if you can see the drain holes. They can usually be blown through with air pressure.Then tested with water .They get clogged with tree droppings and will need cleaned out more in heavely treed locations.Because the back drains are not accessable it helps to park on a slope with the front lower than the rear of vehicle so as to use the front drains youve cleaned out.

1995 C220 SUNROOF NOT SEATING PROPERLY


Unfortunatly these roofs are basically a complete unit with cable and frame all in one unit where as previous roofs had replacable components. Assuming yourr roof seal is not torn or damaged you can adjust the glass somewhat. There are 6 torx style bolts that secure the roof to the tilting brackets. I would raise the roof in the pop up position and carefully remove the side bellows(They are also a common failure and can cause roof to bind or not operate to complete rest postion)-they pop out by pulling outward. Just remove the bottom section so you can easily reinstall them. Next loosen the back torx screws( I beleive they are size t20) and push roof up as far as you can and resecure. If only one side is not popping up as far as it should just do that side. Then try resynchronizing the roof parameters by pushing the button untill roof is in forward postion and hold for approximatly 10 seconds-next push button untill roof is in pop up position and hold for 10 seconds. You can also loosen all 6 screws by popping off the plastic trim piece in front of roof and loosening the screws and pushing roof all the way forward. but you will spend alot of time adjusting utill roof is perfect. good luck

Rain water comes in the car from the top, or moon roof. Is it because the drains are clogged or what?


well the easy way to check is open the sun roof look from the top of the car inside the sunroof is there sitting water in the little drain areas around the sunroof if so the drain is not working... if no sitting water pour some water in see if it drains if it does drain it is prolly the seal isself so if the water drains fine then close the sun roof and spray it with a hose if it still leaks in prolly the seal...if its the drain hose you will have to trace it it useally runs down the a piller let me no what you find or have other questions
