    No visible screws etc. Would we have to remove roof lining & attack from inside if so how?

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!

Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

Why does my forester roof leak?


Once source of leaks is the rubber tube that runs from the roof line to the rear hatch, and contains the rego plate light, rear window heater and locking circuits. Look at the seals under the hatch hinges. If there's nothing obvious, pull some of the internal headers to see where the water is coming from. May still be the moon roof. Water will run down any available slope.
