Question about 2003 Ford Expedition
Cant fine the drain holes
There are drain holes, 2 in the front corners that go down the A post along the windshield and empty under the truck.
The other 2 are in the rear and drain under the truck. Blow out with air pressure to check for clogs. The roof has to be open to see them.
Make sure the seal around the glass is good.

SOURCE: 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.

There are 4 drains on the sunroof (2 in each front corner, 2 in each rear corner).
If you want to check to see if they are clear, you can do this.
Get a squeeze bulb (about the size of a turkey baster) and squirt water down each drain, look for water draining out at the bottom of the car. For the rear drains, park the car on a slight uphill, and gently squeeze water down the drain trough on each side, here again, look for water draining out of the car.
If those ar clear, next step is to check the seal of the glass. The drains are only designed to take in a small amount of water, if there is too big of a gap between the panel and the body, it will over run the drain troughs (kind of like when the gutters on a house get stuff in them).
Finding water leaks is kind of a pain, but not if you take it a step at a time.
One thing to remember, water does not run uphill.
So to further water test it. Find a place where you can park it uphill or downhill, grab a flashlight, a friend and a hose.
Start at a low spot, and work your way around the sunroof (one person inside with the light, one outside with the hose). Just let the water run slowly, you don't want to use a nozzle or a spray.
Once you can see when the water starts leaking on the inside, you can narrow down the cause.

The ramp up mechinism is not closeing the gasket up tight agaisnt the sealing surface so this is a warrenty issue, take it in and have it repaired by the dealer. If you want asstanice to do it yourself please Post here for detailed instructions on doing it yourself. You would do better in a chat because of the problems you may run into that way you work with just one person. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem... fairly simple fix. Just park the truck so the front end is lower than the back. Open then sun roof and you will see in each corner on the front of the sun roof that there is a little hole..this is the drain hole. Pour some water down the hole and see if either one is backed up. (If so keep reading for the solution) If not, park so the back of the truck is lower than the front. The channel that leads to the front drain also leads back behind the rear doors to the rear drain for the sun roof. Pour water in the channel and see if it drains. It will drain right in front of the rear tire, just behind the running board. If you dont get any drainage, you found the clogged drain. To clean the front draines, simply blow it out with an air compressor. For the back ones, you should check underneath the vehicle right in front of the rear tire and see if you can find the drain. If there is debris or dirt there, it could be clogging it. Clean it up and try again to see if you can get some drainage. If it isn't draining and the bottom of the drain is clean, it looks like you are going to have to tear down the head liner and try the same steps as cleaning the front draines. Good luck, and I hope this helps!
