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.

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.

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.

Open the sunroof fully and see if the drain tubes are blocked. On most cars they are located in the corners. If they are clear it could be one of the tubes has become detatched and you will have to drop the head lining to re-attach the loose one. If there is a stain directly behind or at the front corner it will more than likely be the tube has somehow become loose which I have seen happen.

The 2002 Explorer drain holes come out in the door panel. (I looked under the car for awhile before I figured this out.) Open the door and you'll see a rubber grommet between the hinges. Gently poke a wire in the hole to loosen caked dirt.
