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.

SOURCE: How to clean out clogged sunroof drains?

Get some flexible (not solid core) single core electrical cable of a slightly smaller diameter to the drain hole and ease it into the drain hole. Don't force it just gently ease it in. If that doesn't work you can sometimes use an airline to blow it out.

SOURCE: sunroof leaks

Use bicycle spoke or anything similar, pour in some water and thn poke it slowly through the tube and you will feel the choked dust give away, you may need a longer rod kinda thing say a CCM gas weilding rod would work out best as its longer in lenght and about 3mm in diameter.
Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "This helps, but where are the tubes located?"

  • 645 Answers

SOURCE: Where do I find the air conditioner drain tube

the tube is located on the passenger side firewall you can see it from under the car where you will have to be when you clean it out with either blowing air into it or clean it out with a coat hanger. just becareful not to push to far inside so you don't poke a hole into the evaporator. Hope this helps leave a comment. By the way it is usually a little rubber tube hanging out of the fire wall.

Sunroof needs adjustment over drivers seat ..leaks


Many fords have some minor adjustments of the roof, the brackets that support the Sunroof or power sunroof have very small Hex nuts you can loosen and shift the sunroof around, if its leaking it could be some other problem such as the drain tubes, there is usually 2 to 4 drains one on each corner that water drains down a tube through each door pillar, check the tube ports in the sunroof catch basin, they could be clogged with old leaves or dirt, run compressed air through each tube and verify at the other end its working.

Where is the sunroof drain located on 2002 monte carlo ss and how do i unclog it?


Water leaks are fun to trace out. the drain holes and tubes can be seen with roof open and can be unplugged with compressed air . but usually the headliner is soaked and leaks on to seats the windshield will leak on to passenger floor. remove glove box and check for wetness along "A" pillar.

Water in headliner


My Ford Explorer does this too. Almost knocked myself out getting in one time this winter since it had frozen and sagged low over the drivers door.
Typically this is because the drainage rails for the sunroof have gotten clogged. It's normally set up to handle a little leaking - the excess water flows down the back of the sunroof rails and into a tube that goes down the side of the car between the front and rear doors. It gets clogged with pollen ans such through the years.
Every car is set up differently, but it typically requires taking down the headliner and tracing the rails to find the hose, disconnecting it, and plowing it out with an air compressor.

Sunroof leaking


Drain tubes are clogged.Sometimes a shop can run a very light amount of air to unclog it. Unless the drain tubes came off the try all together. then the headliner may need to be removed .

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.

I have a 2003 honda civic ex 2 door. I have a rain leak on the drivers side by the gas/trunk lever. I keep reading it most likely is the sunroof drain. Where is the sunroof drain and how do I get to it to...


It may not be clogged. I believe the sunroof drains run down
the roof pillars and then connect to another hose which exits
through the body behind front fender. Unfortunately the hoses
connect inside the car. Then again this might not be the source
of your leak and water leaks are hard to address. Your dealer
might be your best bet. If the sunroof drains are clogged, Honda
knows entry and exit and they have to be unclogged with compressed
air.

Where do the sunroof drain tubes exit this vehicle?


There are a total of four drains, two front, two rear. The front drains empty out inside of each front door jam. The rear drains empty out inside of the rear bumper. If you drain holes are clogged, use an air compressor to unclog not other as you may either break the drain tube or wack it out of place. I believe there is a technical service bulletin for Grand Prix sunroof mdels 1998-2005, In your sunroof leaks, contact your dealer for more info. Take care and hopes this works for you.
