The glass frame is adjustable. Sometimes these types of leaks can be fixed with adjustment and sometimes it requires that the seals be replaced. Take a look at the pictures below. If your sun roof looks like it is pretty well centered when it is closed, then you probably need to replace the seals. If it is off-center, then it can probably be adjusted to fix your leak.

How do I eliminate the loud wind noises coming through closed sunroof? I have a 2002 Holden Vx Ss Series 2 Commodore


sounds like you need new rubber seals, but first, open the roof, and with a damp cloth, clean dirt off the inside rubbers, then close roof most of the way and clean around the edge of the glass/metal, which ever it is. Then close it fully and see if there are any tiny gaps. Does it leak water ? Red.

It is going to be the seal in your moon roof. Unless you have holes in the top of your car you can be sure that the water is coming from there.

My moon roof leaks. How can I fix it?


are the drains plugged around the sun roof? the sun roof will not seal out water, it drains away through tubes around the sun roof, check to make sure they are clear, this is 100% the cause of the problem.

07 Equinox Leaking water at the front corners of the sun roof. usually during heavy rain, but also when going thru the car wash and the blowers come on to dry the water off.


check the adjustment of your sunroof, i work at a dealer and i just had a 2006 equinox in with the same exact problem, if you look at where the glass attaches to the sunroof rails you will see 2 torx screws on each side, with the sunroof closed, loosen the screws a little bit, don't remove them, push the glass up untill its level with the roof and the seal around the glass looks even all the way around where it contacts the roof sheet metal, then tighten down the screws while holding the glass in place. if it continues to leak, remove the sun visors and the clips for the sun visors, i believe they are either philips scres or torx, there will be 2 screws on the visor itself, and 1 for the clip. then remove the front pillar trim panel, you will see a small cover in the upper panel, use a pick or a sharp thin tool to pry the cover off and remove the 7mm screw in there, pull the door weatherstrip off and pull the trim panel off, after you do that gently pull the headliner down in the front corner and peek up at the sunroof frame, make sure the drain ose is still connected, the procedure is the same for both left and right sides. this should definitely clear up your problem!

Moon roof leaking tube in corner stopped up.


If you can access the top side of the tube without removing the moon roof, you can take an air compressor hose with a rubber nozzle, jam the tip in the hose and blast it with quick bursts of air. To insure that you got the blockage out, pour some water in that area and watch around the wheel well for the water to flow out.

Sunroof leak


Carefully check the rubber gasket around the glass. Sometimes some debris (leaf, pine needles, etc) get caught between the seal and glass, allowing water to 'wick' inside. Not sure about the Jetta, but my Honda has a drain that sometimes plugs up with debris and goop, causing water to stay inside, sometimes dripping inside as u go around a corner. Best way to fix is to blow compressed air thru drain hole to clear. Last, check around sunroof and roof itself where they meet. Any damage to seal at roof, or torn rubber? If anything looks like it might leak, u can seal it w/ caulk. Check your home center for caulk that works on windows (exterior), it'll work on the car.

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.
