These usually have a drain in the unit which may be clogged. If it is just the rubber worn you might try using black RTV to make a patch, as a cheap fix, or just replace the worn part.

My 03 tahoe has a soaking wet driver side floor board. It's rained a ridiculous amount here in MA. Can't find the leak. Shop said I could be the clogged drain hoses for sunroof, but my sunroof doesn't...


Check all rubber seals for wear or breaks (especially the sun roof) and around any glass. That may be why the sun roof doesn't work anyway...water gets in and rusts mechanism. I would start up top first, then work down.

Clogged sunroof drain


there are 2 drain ports about the diameter of a pencil. these drains are connected to a rubber hose that runs all the way down to the sub frame. in the past I have unclogged them with compressed air, or water and a straw using good ol lung power. also where water drains from under vehicle there are rubber nipples you can run a wire through to help unclog. you do not need new sunroof those shops especially dealerships are trying to rip you off. sunroofs are designed to let water pass by seal to drains. the reason for this is because its to hard to keep a complete and true seal around a overhead window, but when the drains become clogged you experience what you and myself are dealing with, my own 2003 Yukon denali does the same exact thing, I just haven't had time to get to it yet. I have fixed plenty in the past, and all makes drain in almost the same way. as far as your headlight goes, a little silicone around edge of lens meeting place you will see old sealant from factory. hope this helps helps thanx

Nissan quest sunroof drain clogged


open your skylight and feel in the front corners for muck stuck infront of the drainage holes. Use a pipe cleaner or other wire to poke through the holes and the water should drain out. It is a little difficult to see the holes but just feel around.

Volvo s40 t5 2005, water leak behind the passenger seat


Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine, the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains are clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains, but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

Water leaking in by passenger side!!!!!!


Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine (and my friend who has the same car), the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains were clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains (they are smaller), but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. It has to do with the way the sunroof drains drain down the side panels of your car. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

SUNROOF LEAKS ON 2007 PONTIAC VIBE


Also check the 2 drain tubes on either side of your sun roof. This might be plugged and needs to be cleared.
If not water backs up and will begin to leak..

2002 leaks on passenger side floor board


That is the sunroof drain hose. Cut the tips off with a razor blade on the driver's side also.

The rear drains are underneath the car inside of the wheel wells but don't clog as often as the front ones.
