Question about 1996 Chrysler Sebring
When I try to close it, I don't hear the motor on it trying to close it. Is there another way to close it A.S.A.P. before it rains... or snows!

Under the cowl in front of the lower front windshield where the wipers are, there are 2 drain holes for water that follows the inside of the fenders. If these holes become plugged with leaves, pine needles or anything else, the water will find a way into the car somewhere else in the firewall.

if you do not use the sunroof on a regular basis the water standing in the track fills the cable tube and causes it to rust. unfortunately the only way to fix it is to replace the entire sunroof track. they do not sell parts separately except for the motor. to test the motor remove the 2 screws in the cover the switch is attached to. slide the cover foeward and it will come off. leave the wires plugged in and take the 2 10mil bolts out of the motor and it will come off. then try the sunroof switch and see if the motor works. if so, you need a new track. if not check voltage to motor. sanders paint and body 34695

The 1997 Sebring convertible has rocker panels (the metal that goes from front to back wheel well and directly under the doors) that have five drain channels each. The sloshing noise occurs when the drain holes plug up and a rocker panel fills up with water. Often, the water will then leak into the right rear footwell, soaking the carpet. A quick fix is to locate the drain holes and run a flat (unused) twistem-tie (they come with your trash bags) through each hole several times. Commonly, doing so will result in a deluge of water, along with spider web parts, leaf parts, and whatever else washed into the rocker panel fromo the rear window.
To find the drain holes, just 1) lie under the car with a flashlight, or 2) sit alongside the car with one of those mirrors that come on a telescoping stick. Since I don't like to lie in dirty water, I use the mirror to guide my twistem-tie (or ice pick or spring wire or whatever) into each hole. NOTE: the drain holes are flat and run at a 30 degree angle from back to front on the right side and from front to back on the left side.
