SOURCE: moonroof leaking..where are the drains to correct leaks inside the car

well first off find the leak. the best way to do this is a smaoke test. with the roof closed. if you smoke light a cigarette and blow smoke around the edges. while someone is outside looking at the roof pinpoint the issue. most likely the rubber molding ( weather stripping) is bad. This is the case almost all the time. you can either contact subaru for this or the cheap easy fix. goto your local parts store and you can buy a weather molding sealent.

SOURCE: 1999 Saturn SL Sun Roof Leaks when it rains

Great solution: Use a 8 foot length of weed eater plastic "blade". You can get a small amount from a hardware supply store. While twisting the strand, insert it into your drains that are located in the corners of your open sunroof hole. Feed the plastic thru the tubing... don't force it, use gentle pressure. Test with a bit of water and look under the car for drainage.

you need to check and see if there is any debris blocking the drain tubes for the sun roof. If not then you need to follow the tubes and look for kinks or other reasons why its not able to drain off quickly.

SOURCE: 1991 LS 400 Lexus has water leak at sun roof. How

each corner will have drains, sometimes you can get a long air gun and shoot some air down there and clear the stoppage, but be careful that you dont blow the hose off. sometimes it just may need to be lubricated.

Water leaking into rear floor storage in vw touran 2004

Sun roof drain may be disconnected or clogged( this is the most likely cause). It is found behind the trim on the upper half of the back pillar. I have also seen where the sunroof frame itself cracked causing the leak, only way to really see that is to lower the headliner a little and inspect for dripping water while spraying the top with water

My 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 keeps getting water in it; what could be causing it?

If it has a sun roof, check it for leaks or there are drain tubes coming off of the sunroof that drain water from the roof. If the drain tubes are blocked the water could come inside. If the inside headliner has stains on it, they may be water stains which tells of a leak.

2007 camry water leaking drivers side

If you have had a winshield installed it could be the seal around it. If not the it sounds like your A/C drains could be blocked . You will need to take it to a repair shop and have the drains blown out. If you have a Sun roof it also could be the drain are plugged . You can clean these your self .. just open the sun roof all the up and at the corners all the way in the front of the slides for the roof panel are drain hole clean them out till you can see where the holes go out and use a piece of wire ( metal coat hanger) only push it in 2 or 3 inch's to far and you can damage the rubber tube or put a hole in it .

Rain water leaked thru the inside light of my car Jeep compass 2008 Model.I checked there is no hole on the roof.

Does the vehicle have a sun/moon roof? If so, it is common for the drain tube to become plugged which causes the water to back up into the sun roof module. The water then spills over into the rails that run side to side and leaks into the passenger compartment. The low point of the roof rails being the interior light. Open the sun roof all of the way and look for the drain tube(s). They usually tap into one or more of the corners of the sun roof module and then follow the conture of the vehicle either to the front or rear and drain the water out near the wheelhouse area. You'll need to find some way to disconnect the tubes from the module and flush the debris out. It is usually tiny bits of dust or sand that will flush out quite easily. You have to watch out for a couple of things. Do not drop the tubes as they may fall into the channel of the vehicle, and, use very light water pressure when flushing. There may be other connections in the hose downstream, and you don't want to dislodge those connections.

My moon roof leaks. How can I fix it?

are the drains plugged around the sun roof? the sun roof will not seal out water, it drains away through tubes around the sun roof, check to make sure they are clear, this is 100% the cause of the problem.

My 2000 XJ8 Jag's sunroof is leaking on the passenger at the very back. I've noticed that when I close either front doors the sunroof moves up like it is not closed tight. What is the problem?

There are drain tubes fitted to let water run out. The tubes drain out at the rear of the front wheel arches. Check that the tubes are not blocked. The sun roof on my XJ8 is slightly "loose" when closed but is not leaking. Sit in the car and have somebody hose water on the roof to check for the origine of the leak.

My sun roof leaks and no o0ne seems able to fix it 2004 ion3

Check your water drain holes. There should be one in each corner. The older Saturns would get blocked and the water would back up. On those you can access the drain tube on either front side at the kick panel. I've not tried to fix an ION so I'm not sure how the drains work. Open the sun roof and pour a little water in each corner. The water should drain out behind the front wheels and somewhere near the rear. If it doesn't you have blockage. Find the drain tube and run a wire through it. Make sure your are careful because you can pierce the rubber tube. Good luck.

Where is the water drain plug for a 2006 hyundai sonata?

Does this vehicle have a Sun/Moon Roof? The 'water pan' as you call it, is not equipped with a 'plug.' It's part of the Sun/Moon roof assy. the problem is most likely the drain tube (perhaps misrouted) from the roof to the outside of the vehicle (drain alley). The drain tubs are located behind the head-liner at 4 corners of the assy. Otherwise, the leak you describe is possibly being caused by a windshield leak.
