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.

How to Repair a Leaking Car Sunroof Repairing a leaky sunroof usually leads to discovering that the sunroof is not the culprit of the leak. Instead dirt and debris may be the likely culprits since they obstruct the drainage tubes or the drain channel that are part of the sunroof's water management system. Once these are obstructed, the water backs up and heads for the nearest escape, which may be to the interior of your car. The following instructions are to help you repair a leaking car sun roof.

  1. 1)Use a non-abrasive cleaner with a soft cloth to clean the glass panel and the seal on the outside of the car.2)Open the sunroof after opening the vent shade. Allow the sunroof to open to the vent position but do not let it slide backwards.Wipe and clean the trough that is around the opening of the sunroof. 3)Use a wet cloth to remove any debris that may be preventing a tight seal between the trough and the sunroof's seal.Inspect the seal. 4)Look for any cracks in the seal. If you find any, you will need to replace the seal. Contact the car manufacturer or a repair shop to replace the seal.Check the drainage tubes.5) You can use a small cable or even a coat hanger to gently probe around for a few inches to see if there are any clogs or standing water in the tubes.6)Use a thin cable or coat hanger wire again to try to clear the drainage tubes if they are clogged. Make sure whatever you use does not have a sharp end and apply only a little pressure.7)Verify that any of the standing water in the drainage tubes went down by poking a dry thin cable or wire down an inch or and pulling the wire back out.8)Check that the clogs are completely gone in the drainage tubes by pouring a small amount of water into the tubes.

    How to Check a Sunroof for Leaks There's nothing nicer than a sunroof in your car, especially on a spring or summer day. Open the sunroof and enjoy the fresh breeze. But check a sunroof carefully for leaks before you buy a used car. It's just good business. 1)Open the sunroof to check for leaks when you are shopping for a used vehicle. First of all, make sure the sunroof opens smoothly and closes securely. A good, snug fit with no cracks or lop-sided setting is a good indication that it won't leak.2)Look carefully around the inside edges of the roof of the car where the sunroof opens. Check a sunroof for leaks by making sure there are no signs of rust or corroded metal around the opening edges. Of course, examine this area while the sunroof is open so that you see all areas on the sunroof opening's edges.3)Check the ceiling inside the vehicle when you check a sunroof for leaks. Look for signs of water stains around the inside ceiling lining of the car at the sunroof's site. Ceiling fabric at the site of the sunroof or around the area of the sunroof that looks spotted or has slight color variations may indicate a sunroof leak.4)See if the car's headliner (the ceiling fabric) is sagging. A leaking sunroof may cause water to run inside the headliner. Water buildup causes the headliner to sag over time.5)Examine the floor of the vehicle carefully when you check a sunroof for leaks. Damp carpet or a mildew smell may indicate a leaking sunroof. Also, look for water stains on seats where water may drip down from the sunroof. This will help.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Saturn

the sunroof has 4 drain hoses, one at each corner, the front hoses run down the windshield pillars, the rear hoses run down the rear window pillars they exit at the front and the rear of doors. and yes they are most likely plugged at the top leaves and junk gets into the drains. mig welder wire works good for cleaning the drains.....good luck

'06 Chrysler Pacifica w/sunroof: When it rains water is leaking out of the front door frame covers and sun visor screws. (Sun roof is closed.)


hi i'm not familar with your car but if you can wind the sunroof back so the sunroof is fully open look at all four corners where the sunroof sits into there should be at least 2 drain holes which can over time become clogged with debris, if you find them use some warm water and flexi pipe to clean the drain holes out. hope this helps

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.

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.

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.

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 drain hose.
  • Roof opening panel seal.

Leaking sun-roof


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.
