Sunroof Leaking...

Hello all. We had severe rains for about 24 hours yesterday, car was parked the entire day. Got in the car this morning, stopped at a traffic light, and water started pouring out of the sun visor mount. Any one else experience this? Pretty disappointed, the car has 1200 miles on it.

Re: Sunroof Leaking...

Gokart, other members experienced similar leaks, I recall it being either improper windshield seal, improper sunroof seal, or plugged drain holes. A search may give you some guidance before heading into your dealer for the fix, which they should handle for you. Sorry, hope it gets squared away.

Re: Sunroof Leaking...

Likely plugged sunroof drain tubes. Happens to mine once in a while too.

Re: Sunroof Leaking...

Checked the drains and all clear. Got another terrible rain storm yesterday and now the sunroof is leaking from the sunglasses holder. Took it in today, adviser said the drain tube may be kinked. Will keep you posted..

Open sunroof, they are the little holes in the corners, not too hard to find.

Re: Sunroof Leaking...

I had the same about 2 hours after paying off the Jeep. Went home for lunch and a nice storm passed and dropped about an inch of rain. When I backed out of the driveway, it began to rain from the overhead console and the oh sh!t handles. I had clogged drains and a misaligned sunroof. Dealer fixed it for about $300.

Re: Sunroof Leaking...

Clogged drains doesn't make much sense when the jeep has 1300 miles on it. I'm leaning towards a kinked drain tube...
