    My 05 GC has the same problem. When closing the sunroof does not lift intoplace completly. A temp fix is to press the vent button and attemp to press it again quickly. This will lift the glass enough to complete the water tight seal but it is not a fix exactly, just a way to keep dry until you can take afford the dealer fleecing.

Can I access the sunroof driverside drain tube from the wheel well? Like me and all the google questions aim chasing a water leak-- poured water all over the car no water-- but under pads soaked

Try opening all your doors and look at the bottom of the doors for the slots that allow rain to drain from inside the doors. They are most likely blocked and water will leak over inside the car. Blow compressed air to clear sunroof drains from the top while the sunroof is open.

'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

Wet floor boards when it rains

If you have a sunroof the hose that allows the gland around the glass window to drain has plugged. Also reported is the rubber hose connection to the drain in the roof gland has also relaxed allowing the water to leak from the connection. This is an easy repair and several videos are available to DIY. If the car sits outside near trees, or has been baking in the sun are the most likely cause .

Hope this helps?

Sunroof drain clogged

You may be able to clear debris out by using a long thin rod and pushing it into the openings on the front of the sunroof drain channels the pouring some water in to make sure it drains properly sometimes the drain pipes become disconnected inside the headliner but try clearing the obstruction first and see what happens.

Leaking rain water from outside in around the right side passenger door or winshield

Does your rig have a sunroof? If so there are sunroof drains that run through windshield pillars and if they clog up with leaves, etc... they back up into your rig. To clean, you need to blow compressed air through.

The drains on my sunroof leak when it rains and water comes inside the vehicle. How do I unclog the drains?

A big leak with that model is the drain tray in the rear under glass has broken loose. To check the drains, park vehicle on an down grade, open the glass and pour a cup of water in on each side and the water should come out the front, Turn the vehicle around to check the rear the same way.

Sunroof leak

there are drain hoses on all all four corners of the sunroof. to access the front ones, remove the front inner fender liners. you'll probably see a plastic grommet/spout that the drain hose attaches to. in the rear, remove the trunk liners on the side. you should see the drain hoses running down the inside of the quarter panel.
