H3 Hummer leaking water into cab.


My 06 H3 was leaking when it rained. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in thefront of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the groundand two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The waterwould seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubeson the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behindthe dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the leftduring a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaningright, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blowcompressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, toomuch pressure will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have toremove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes andreconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it byopening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in thefront of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the groundunder the firewall2_bing.gifon left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catchpan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other tofind the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Sunroof needs adjustment over drivers seat ..leaks


Many fords have some minor adjustments of the roof, the brackets that support the Sunroof or power sunroof have very small Hex nuts you can loosen and shift the sunroof around, if its leaking it could be some other problem such as the drain tubes, there is usually 2 to 4 drains one on each corner that water drains down a tube through each door pillar, check the tube ports in the sunroof catch basin, they could be clogged with old leaves or dirt, run compressed air through each tube and verify at the other end its working.

Where do sunroof drains goto . Sunroof leaks runs inside seatbelt wall to floor


Hi! Sunroof should be sealed and theres no drain to go anywhere unless the rubber sealant is worn. That may be the reason it leaks on the seatbelt wall. You will need to have the sealant replaced. Hope this helps and have a good one!

How do I fix a leaking sunroof?


I beleive the issue may be more the drains from around the sunroof. The factory sunroof typically have some small drain or weep holes to allow rain water to drain away (eaier to get rid of the water then hold it back) with the sunroof fully open look for these small drain holes and try running a fine wire thru them to clear any possible existing obstruction(s) If this is not the case I'd have to guess that the weather stripping has worn and weathered and would need replacement.
I hope this mau have assisted you,
Tom
