    Where are the drainage channels and how does one clean them out?

  • Anonymous Apr 14, 2009


    I have a Honda Accord. When it rains, water settles on the carpet of the right side of the car. The water starts from the sides of the car as if it is draining from the doors.

Had same problem with 91 Prelude, after rain, water would leak from moonroof, especially when stopping, having a wet neck on the way to work is not fun! Solution was to remove the small screens and restrictor caps on the drain hoses. The hoses can be acessed through the trunk behind the quarter panel cover on either side, just have a can ready for the skanky water to drain once the plugs are removed. When all clear, the drains should drain out right behind the mud flaps in the rear on each side. There are fron drains as well, these run behind the driver and passanger kick panels and drain around the mud flaps in the front.

Do u have the wind shield on the roof? The water gets trapped behind it when the drain plugs up. Use compressed air, blow thru the drain hole to dislodge crud blocking the tube.

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 do sunroof drains goto . Sunroof leaks runs inside seatbelt wall to floor


Hi! Sunroof should be sealed and theres no drain to go anywhere unless the rubber sealant is worn. That may be the reason it leaks on the seatbelt wall. You will need to have the sealant replaced. Hope this helps and have a good one!

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

Sun roof leaking water


How to Repair a Leaking Car Sunroof Repairing a leaky sunroof usually leads to discovering that the sunroof is not the culprit of the leak. Instead dirt and debris may be the likely culprits since they obstruct the drainage tubes or the drain channel that are part of the sunroof's water management system. Once these are obstructed, the water backs up and heads for the nearest escape, which may be to the interior of your car. The following instructions are to help you repair a leaking car sun roof.
  1. 1)Use a non-abrasive cleaner with a soft cloth to clean the glass panel and the seal on the outside of the car.2)Open the sunroof after opening the vent shade. Allow the sunroof to open to the vent position but do not let it slide backwards.Wipe and clean the trough that is around the opening of the sunroof. 3)Use a wet cloth to remove any debris that may be preventing a tight seal between the trough and the sunroof's seal.Inspect the seal. 4)Look for any cracks in the seal. If you find any, you will need to replace the seal. Contact the car manufacturer or a repair shop to replace the seal.Check the drainage tubes.5) You can use a small cable or even a coat hanger to gently probe around for a few inches to see if there are any clogs or standing water in the tubes.6)Use a thin cable or coat hanger wire again to try to clear the drainage tubes if they are clogged. Make sure whatever you use does not have a sharp end and apply only a little pressure.7)Verify that any of the standing water in the drainage tubes went down by poking a dry thin cable or wire down an inch or and pulling the wire back out.8)Check that the clogs are completely gone in the drainage tubes by pouring a small amount of water into the tubes.

    How to Check a Sunroof for Leaks There's nothing nicer than a sunroof in your car, especially on a spring or summer day. Open the sunroof and enjoy the fresh breeze. But check a sunroof carefully for leaks before you buy a used car. It's just good business. 1)Open the sunroof to check for leaks when you are shopping for a used vehicle. First of all, make sure the sunroof opens smoothly and closes securely. A good, snug fit with no cracks or lop-sided setting is a good indication that it won't leak.2)Look carefully around the inside edges of the roof of the car where the sunroof opens. Check a sunroof for leaks by making sure there are no signs of rust or corroded metal around the opening edges. Of course, examine this area while the sunroof is open so that you see all areas on the sunroof opening's edges.3)Check the ceiling inside the vehicle when you check a sunroof for leaks. Look for signs of water stains around the inside ceiling lining of the car at the sunroof's site. Ceiling fabric at the site of the sunroof or around the area of the sunroof that looks spotted or has slight color variations may indicate a sunroof leak.4)See if the car's headliner (the ceiling fabric) is sagging. A leaking sunroof may cause water to run inside the headliner. Water buildup causes the headliner to sag over time.5)Examine the floor of the vehicle carefully when you check a sunroof for leaks. Damp carpet or a mildew smell may indicate a leaking sunroof. Also, look for water stains on seats where water may drip down from the sunroof. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

The sunroof on my 2009 Hummer H3 leaks.


What they meant by "they all leak" is that the sunroof seals around the glass are not meant to keep water from getting down in the sunroof, and tray and drains are there to drain the water that does get down in there. The problem most likely exists with your drainage tubes. They can either be clogged, or in my case with my 06 H3, the tubes were somehow disconnected and I had to drop down the roof panel to reconnect one.
