There are drains for the sunroof that are located in the coners of the roof, these plug up and the water drains into car, you will need to remove the cover were the seatbelt is and see if the hose that connects to the drain fell off or if drain is plugged, open the roof all the way back and using a bottle filled with water , pour over the drains one at a time and see if it drains if not you will need to use a coat hanger and unplug them but i would still check for the hose off on the side that leaks water. good day.

Sunroof leaks water, how do i fix it?


It's normal for a sunroof to leak a small amount of water past the glass. Although the glass is mounted to brackets, the glass sits in the roof with a weatherstip sealing it. When the vehicle is driven, movement is allowed and rain water will seep past. The channel below the glass has drains in the corners that allow water to flow down a hose and to the lower body. These hoses are routed through the pillars that hold the roof. If one of these draines are plugged the water will back up and overflow out of the channel and into the passenger compartment. Open your sunroof and first check the seal around the glass for nicks, cuts, tears, gaps and correct if neccesary. Then look in the front corners of the roof opening. You will see drain holes. Be sure they are clean. Unfortuantely you can't easily see the rears and the headliner may need to be removed. Sometimes the hoses are plugged with dirt/tar from underneath. Good luck.

Rain water leaked thru the inside light of my car Jeep compass 2008 Model.I checked there is no hole on the roof.


Does the vehicle have a sun/moon roof? If so, it is common for the drain tube to become plugged which causes the water to back up into the sun roof module. The water then spills over into the rails that run side to side and leaks into the passenger compartment. The low point of the roof rails being the interior light. Open the sun roof all of the way and look for the drain tube(s). They usually tap into one or more of the corners of the sun roof module and then follow the conture of the vehicle either to the front or rear and drain the water out near the wheelhouse area. You'll need to find some way to disconnect the tubes from the module and flush the debris out. It is usually tiny bits of dust or sand that will flush out quite easily. You have to watch out for a couple of things. Do not drop the tubes as they may fall into the channel of the vehicle, and, use very light water pressure when flushing. There may be other connections in the hose downstream, and you don't want to dislodge those connections.

Rain water comes in the car from the top, or moon roof. Is it because the drains are clogged or what?


well the easy way to check is open the sun roof look from the top of the car inside the sunroof is there sitting water in the little drain areas around the sunroof if so the drain is not working... if no sitting water pour some water in see if it drains if it does drain it is prolly the seal isself so if the water drains fine then close the sun roof and spray it with a hose if it still leaks in prolly the seal...if its the drain hose you will have to trace it it useally runs down the a piller let me no what you find or have other questions

1995 bonneville water problems


I had a similar (and maddening) problem with my 1994 Bonneville SSEI. Try the following!

First,check the roof drains from the moon roof. The drains on the Bonneville from 1992 until 1999 are often and easily plugged. This simple check can be properly accomplished by first opening the moon roof, secondly finding the front drains (usually near the four corners of the moon roof) and third using low pressure compressed air to "gently" clear them. After clearing, you can check proper drainage by the drains by pouring a bottle or two of water directly into the drains and then looking beneath the car for the water that was drained.

Secondly, check the quality of the drain hoses from the moonroof. You can find them by carefully removing the plastic covers on each side of the the inside windshield pillars. Check out the hoses for proper connection and that they remain in good shape. The moon roof drain hoses can sometimes become disconnected or even disintegrate with age to the point that they leak.

Third, check the door seals and make sure that they are properly functioning. This can usually be accomplished by making sure the seals are not torn and ascertaining if the seals are properly secured to the door jams with adhesive. If not, reinforce the adhesive with additional adhesive.
