2005 Dodge Neon Sunroof leaks

After it rains, water gets in via the sunroof.  This doesn't happen all the time just enough to get me upset. The dealer says its the seal that the sunroof sits on.  It'll cost $300 to fix.  Is there a cheaper option?

But a caulking gun and some clear silicone caulking.... run a bead of caulking all the way around the outside of the sunroof edge.... use a stiff peice of card board and something similiar to smooth the edge of the bead of caulking.to make it look less obvious.. if the seal is the same as weather stripping on a car it's somewhat more diffucult to fix.

You can redo the seal with gasket sealant. You can get this from auto zone for less than $15. You would have to remove the carpet material on the roof, then disasemble the sunroof where you can get the glass off then redo the seal. Let it dry for a few hours to ensure the seal is good then reassemble. Its easy if you know what you doing. If you have any questions contact me at redwolfe5@hotmail.com

Sunroof leaks around window and seal


If this Is a factory fitted sunroof then its most likely not the seal, these seals don't stop rain getting in, the sunroof is designed so that the rain does seep in but falls into a little trough around the edge underneath, this trough will have small holes in the corners where small pipes are attached and these pipes run behind the headliner and down the cars pillars to allow the water to run away. The most likely cause is that the holes in the corners of the trough are blocked and the water cannot escape. Open the sun roof and look in at the edges underneath from above and you should see the problem.

There is water leaking inside above my passenger side door when it rains pretty hard?


is the water leak allowing the water to wick up into the headliner or is the headliner getting wet without water coming past the weather stripping around the door?

If it is wicking then fix the weather stripping.
If the water is getting headliner wet with out passing the weather stripping then you have a leaking sun roof.

You can the door seal by sitting in the car while you have some spray water (garden hose) gentle at the frontal and upper door seal.
If not leak there inspect seal of sun roof and real seal with correct type of sealant.

Passenger side water leak


your sunroof has a drain tube off where it connects to the sunroof frame-the water is running down the windshield pillar on the inside of the trim and out under the dash

Water under dashboard passenger floor


If you have a sunroof, that may be your issue. I had a similiar problem when it would rain. After a good rain, water would pour from my front side pillars when making turns, which allowed me to see how water got on the floor.

SOLUTION:
1. Open sunroof, stand up so you can fully see sunroof tracks.
2. In the right/left front corners of the the sunroof tracks are small vent holes (locate them). All sunroofs have these holes in the event of minimal water leakage.
3. Take a 2-3 ft strand of solid wire approx 18ga, insert into vent holes to clear out any type of debris, or build-up. (the dealer wants to charge you $$$ to send your vehicle to another facility to do water test for leakage)
4. Last, take a decent sized squeezable cup filled with hot water (not too hot to hold cup), enough to slowly pour is into sunroof track/vent holes. This will ensure you actually pushed any debris down the vent tubing.
5. If you cleared any build-up from the vent holes, you should see water puddles on the ground, or just have someone watch for leakage near the back of the front wheel well.

Hope it works, I performed this same manuever on my wifes 2009 Jeep Patriot, and filled some corner gaps in the tracking with silicon ($2.89 small tube), when the dealer wanted $150 for leak diagnostics. "Really"

Good Luck
