Sunroof leak concerns can be difficult to verify and difficult to repair. The most common concern with sunroof leaks is a clogged drain. The roof has a drain on four corners and if one is plugged with debris, the water will rise above the drain channel and leak into the vehicle. Open your roof and look in the front corners to see if any debris is present. The drain holes drain into tubes that run down the roof support pillars and to the ground. try to remove any debris if possible. Debris in the bottom of the drain lines can cause an issue as well. If the leak is caused by a rear drain, the headliner will need to be accessed. Good luck.

You can usually fix this problem by putting a little vasoline around the rubber groves. this will make the rubber seal and help the leaks. This works i did it on my wife's pt, cruser.
Good luck.

The sun roof will leak no matter what, that is why it has two drains, they are likely plugged up.

Sun roof leaks


Most likely cause is the gasket around the Sun Roof. Most auto parts stores have a gasket kit to do it yourself. It is time consuming but much cheaper than having a dealer or sun roof specialist replacing it.

1991 LS 400 Lexus has water leak at sun roof. How


each corner will have drains, sometimes you can get a long air gun and shoot some air down there and clear the stoppage, but be careful that you dont blow the hose off. sometimes it just may need to be lubricated.

you need to check and see if there is any debris blocking the drain tubes for the sun roof. If not then you need to follow the tubes and look for kinks or other reasons why its not able to drain off quickly.

you have 2 drains in the front that go down the a pillars and dump near the fenders.

The rear usually go down the B pillar or C pillar and out thebottom near the rocker panel.

Blow them out from the top with compressed air and make sure you have air flow at the exits.. Open the roof to see drain holes in the four corners.

  • The roof opening panel leaks
  • Roof opening panel adjustment.
  • Front rail seal.
  • Drain tube attachment points.

  • Roof opening panel drain hose.
