It will have to be resealed!

'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

Sunroof leaks around window and seal


If this Is a factory fitted sunroof then its most likely not the seal, these seals don't stop rain getting in, the sunroof is designed so that the rain does seep in but falls into a little trough around the edge underneath, this trough will have small holes in the corners where small pipes are attached and these pipes run behind the headliner and down the cars pillars to allow the water to run away. The most likely cause is that the holes in the corners of the trough are blocked and the water cannot escape. Open the sun roof and look in at the edges underneath from above and you should see the problem.

Front passenger floor wet from rain, where is leak at?


Do you have a sunroof or moonroof? If so the problem is going to be in the drain for that sunroof or moonroof. If you open the roof, on either front corner you will see a small circular hole. Take some compressed air and blow it through each of those holes. You may see debris come out of the bottom near the back of your wheel well. Take cup of water and slowly pour that near those holes and make sure it goes through. Usually when that drain is clogged the water from a rain storm will flood into the passenger cabin.

I have an F150 LLariat w/ sunroof. When it Rains there is a lot of water dripping from under the glove box on the right side. It will fill the channel along the passanger rocker panel.


Most likely the sunroof is leaking. You can permenently seal it or replace the seal. The last roof seal I replaced costs $175.00 for the part.

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Water sloshing in roof


The roof drain tubes are clogged. Look at the front corners for debris blocking the drain tube holes.

My sunroof is leaking badly


AH! I had this problem. The drain spouts are in the rear of the car. When you open the hatchback, there's the panels, where the helper light is, you have to take this off to access the drain thing. It comes undone a lot in these cars.
If you need help, pictures, etc, just let me know. jdretzolk@gmail.com
