    I have the same problem and have water leaking into my driver side under the visor and down the interior frame. I have tried cleaning the tracks but do not know where the drains are to clean them.

    I also have this problem with a 1995 Explorer that I bought to move to Ketchikan, AK. NONE of the body shops will fix leaks here- grrrrrr- in a town with 8,000 people and 170+ inches of rain. !

    Any advice?

I fixed the problem. First I had a mechanic blow the drains out with compressed air but there wasn't anything clogging them. He did notice the sunroof wasn't completely closed tight, even though it appeared to be from the inside. The closing mechanism caused the roof to move past where it needed to be instead of automatically stopping in the correct position, leaving a tiny gap that I couldn't see. Stand next to your driver's side door and look at the sunroof from the side. If it looks like it's completely flush with the surface, try moving it a bit until it's sitting at a very slight, almost undetectable, upwards angle. So far, it's been a couple of months and I haven't had any more leaks. Let me know if this works for you!

Water leak in my range rover on driver side floor had drain unstop from sunroof what else could it be


You unclogged the sunroof drain line - that is good. Are you sure that the line didn't pull up thru the floorboard. Many vehicles run the drain line down the drives side window pillar and out thru the floorboard. If the hose shrinks with age (as some do), they can pull up into the cabin and leak on the floor.

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.

Carpet is wet on the driver and passenger sides in the front of the vehicle.


The a/c drain is likely clogged causing water to drain into the cabin. There is a hose coming out of the firewall under the car on the passenger side. You can try fishing a wire through the drain hose to unclog it. Sometimes it will have a few bends in it making it pretty difficult to snake the hose up. If you can't fish a wire through the hose you can try a quick shot of compressed air through it. Keep your face clear of the hose, if it is clogged you'll likely get a few gallons quickly out of the hose.

If that checks out, do you have a sunroof?

Open up the sunroof and try to unclog the drainage. You will see this from the inside of the ML by opening the whole sunroof and stickin your hear thru. On the drivers side you will see a drainage whole similar to the passenger side. Mine did the same thing and unclogged it with a straw. ljsloan@gmail.com

How can I unclug my sunroof?


The best item is weedeater (weedwhacker or whatever you call it) nylon. It is thick enough to push blockage out and flexible to handle any bends. Also check the exit of the drain tube (behind a cover near the front wheel on my GTV6) as an accumulation of mud will prevent the gutter from draining out.

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.

Leaking sunroof in 98 Saturn SC2


The drain hoses get clogged behind the kick panels. Pull back the kick panel and reach in grab the hose and pull it out from the hole in the lower panel. Then I just cut off the end and watch the mud and water flow out then reinstall. There is also one in the rear wheel wells as well for the back drains.
There is no reason to remove the headliner unless its broke.
