Use a turkey baster (kitchen gadget) as a plunger.

Open the roof all the way, put enough water in the frame area to cover the drain holes, plunge away with the baster until water runs through the holes. Then use a rag to temporarily plug the clear hole while you work the others.

H3 Hummer leaking water into cab.


My 06 H3 was leaking when it rained. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in thefront of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the groundand two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The waterwould seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubeson the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behindthe dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the leftduring a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaningright, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blowcompressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, toomuch pressure will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have toremove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes andreconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it byopening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in thefront of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the groundunder the firewall2_bing.gifon left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catchpan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other tofind the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

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.

My daughter just bought a 2000 pontiac grand am and it gets water in the back drivers side when it rains hard. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?


Is the car equipped with a sunroof. If so, I suspect sunroof drain is plugged up (leaves etc..) You need to blow compressed air through drains to unplug (if so equipped) You can also take it to a self serve car wash and spray hi pressured soapy water at suspect area, soap will leave a trail.

My car filled up with water from yesterdays rain and i cant find the source of the leak and checked the door seals and there ok. this issue is only on the drivers side.


Does car have sunroof? If sunroof drains are plugged they overflow into car. To cure, blow compressed air through drain tubes.

2006 hummer h3 has a leak on passenger side under the dash during a rain storm


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!!
