2004 Expedition Sun Roof Leaks

For some reason my Expedition 2004 Sun Roof Leaks when washing or rains. It will get wet underneath on the frame in front of the drivers visor and on the drivers side, and passenger side on the lining just below each side of the sun roof and can see it drip heavily down the hand grips on each side.

I've seen where someone says it is likely the drain vents are clogged in the where the sun roof meets the frame in front where it closes. Is this true or is it something else?

    i have the same problem in my 2002 vw polo. The leak only happens in heavy rain not so much light rain. It leaks on the gear box a bit and also the drivers seat which doesnt leave a pleasant look. I hadnt driven my call for a whole week and when i entered it today there was a very damp atmosphere.

    Thanks for this information. I will perform this function now that I know there are drain tubes that must be clogged up.

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.

    remember, the seal around the moon roof glass is not desgned to be totally water proof. It's designed to stop 90% of the water flow. The drains are designed to manage the water that does get by and divert it down the drain tubes.

    Sometimes, parking up hill or downhill will cause the leak to be worse. It depends on how good the drain tubes go "downhill" and how long they are. Parking facing down hill is usually better. Shorter drain runs.

2006 dodge durango that does not have a sun roof that leaks water on the Head liner and seat belt and floor when it rains or I go thru car wash? What could cause this?


I just Googled a picture.
There is a roof rack type trim on the roof.
Water flows downhill
3 possible sources:
- window trim
- windshield
- roof trim
I would be suspecting the roof trim. Determine how it is attached. Remove it. Clean the roof and all parts of the trim that contect the roof. Apply sealant in appropriate locations. Re- install roof trim.
Test
No leak!
Ta-Da!

Water on floorboard 2004 toyota corolla why

Iam getting rain in my 2003 HSE why.


And where exactly is this rain coming from? The sun roof? The door seals? Seeping in down in the footwells (soggy carpet)?

Sometimes "rain" can be mistaken for A/C condensate that is not draining due to a plugged condensate drain. If your A/C is running and it's hot and humid out then you should see some water drips on the ground underneath the front area of the vehicle. Let it sit in one location for a few minutes after you come in from driving it. Let it sit for a few minutes with the engine and A/C running. Move the vehicle and look for the telltale wet spots from the condensate drain. If you don't see a wet spot then chances are the drain is plugged. The condensate will back up and drain inside the car ...typically in the passenger footwell and making the carpet wet.

The paint on the roof is cracking. During rain storms there seems to be leaks. Carpet would be wet as well as ceiling and seats.


Do you have a sunroof?? you are probably leaking at your sunroof if you have one... sometimes the seals just wear out it is a common problem... you can go into a shop and ask if they can take a smoke machine to it and see if they can find it...

Everytime it rains hard my carpet is wet by the door on the driver side and also driver side rear door


There is a great possibilty that there is a leak on the Left Side of the Windshield. It is most likely in the area of the upper left side.
The reason for this conclusion is:
The rain water is coming in the Left Upper Side; and either coming down the "A" Pillar, or traveling underneath the trim on the inside roof and coming down the "B" Pillar.
The only other explanantion is a torn, worn, cracked or dislocated Weather Seal on one or both of the doors, allowing rain water to come in. Inspect very carefully these Weather Seals, especially on the top front portion of the rear door.
To help you locate these after a hard rain:
Take the trim panels off the "A: and "B" Pillars and the Roof Line above both Doors. Check for wetness underneath the trim. Or take these trim panels off, and place folded paper towels under the trim panels; reattach the trim panels and wait until it rains. Afterwhich, take these trim panel off and check the paper towels for wetness.
The Windshield Seal is easily inspected for cracks and tears.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

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.

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.
