Leaking sun-roof i have 1995 cherokee orvis edition, the sun-roof leaks on the drivers' side, mechanic said they don't make gaskets or seals to replace. he said i need to replace entire window assembly (costly) or caulk window, so i wouldn't be able to open it. don't like that idea either. it is an electric sliding window. thanks jim

If you open the sunroof, look towards the rear corners and you will see 2 openings that are the drains. If the drain openings are clogged, you will get water into the car from the sunroof.

2003 STS cadillac leaking water on both driver and passenger floor boards


It could be the sun roof. It also could be clogged drains from the sun roof. It may also be door seals Leaking. It could also be leaking around the bottom of the windshield. A good way to narrow it down is to get inside the car and have someone spray the outside of the car with a water hose. while you look for water leaking inside of the car. If it does it while the ac is on may be a clogged ac drain. however it usually just leaks on passenger side when it is that. well good luck.

Check all rubber seals for wear or breaks (especially the sun roof) and around any glass. That may be why the sun roof doesn't work anyway...water gets in and rusts mechanism. I would start up top first, then work down.

Radio freezes up then turns off and back on again some days it works fine other days not so well


I actually took a 06 Commander in last week with the same problem. We checked the windshield carefully, and then drivers door moldings and then blew out the drains for the sun roof.
It still leaked down through the drivers' side drain line area of the sun roof, around the window moulding, and dripped right in the vicintiy of the rear of the radio.
We finally found the problem by dropping the head liner down and using an inspection mirror with a flash light. We disconnected the drain line and plugged the nipple opening and poured a small amount of water into the sun roof pan and located a hole in the drain pan just above where the nipple is formed for the drivers' side sun roof drain line.
We could not see the actual leak source without the mirror and flashlight, as it was on the interior side seam facing away from the drivers' door opening.

Since carefully sealing the drain pan seam just a 1/4 above the drain hose nipple on the interior side, slightly above where the drain hose connects, the problem appears to be solved.

It appears to be a manufacturing defect in the plastic seam in my opinion. Could just be a faulty radio if your car doesn't have a sunroof, or a leaking windshield gasket.

Water in floor board passenger side of 2001 jeep grand cherokee. Could it be the sun room drain. If so where is it located?


I had the same problem with my jeep. If you aren't positive that it is your sun roof check to make sure that your doors are shutting completely. One way to check is by pouring water along the crack where your door meets the body of your car. My sun roof as well as my drivers side door had a leak in them and instead of getting the sun roof fixed I had sealant put around the rim of the window and I haven't had any problems since.

Rain comes in and sloshes around the floor in right back seat area. Not sure if it is from after-factory installed sun roof, windshield, or rear window. I've heard that there is a product you can shoot...


Often just like a roof leak in a house, you have to look into the places you wouldnt think of. Could be a leak from the sun roof going down the inside of the roof and down the side to the floor. Does the hatch have a leak in the seal? Sometimes you can have a drain plug up that will let the car pool up. Does the sunroof have a catch pan and drain tubes. My prelude (factory sun roof) had plugged drains and leaked. If you find that you have a leaky Window, DONT USE SILICONE!!! The acids in the silicone will blister your paint and make your car rust. If the rubber (Im assuming that you or someone reading this may have some rubber seals on their car) is pliable enough they make a glass seal that is to seal the glass to the rubber.

Hope this helps some... Dale

Check the bottom of the door for clogged drain holes. Could also be a weatherstrip seal leak around the door opening. Worst case there could be a leak around the windshield gasket.

2004 Expedition Sun Roof Leaks


you have 2 drains in the front that go down the a pillars and dump near the fenders.

The rear usually go down the B pillar or C pillar and out thebottom near the rocker panel.

Blow them out from the top with compressed air and make sure you have air flow at the exits.. Open the roof to see drain holes in the four corners.

-----------
  • The roof opening panel leaks
  • Roof opening panel adjustment.
  • Front rail seal.
  • Drain tube attachment points.
  • Roof opening panel water trough and seal.
  • Roof opening panel drain hose.
  • Roof opening panel seal.
  • Roof opening panel.
