your sunroof drains... nuff said

most likely your rear drains, actually they have to have new drains run which requires drilling oval holes back behind the rear 1/4 trim which involves de-trimming basically the entire rear of the car. A job I can get done in like 1 hr start to finish but if your not comefortable taking the interior apart or have a good drill to reach into the quarter pannel area (really requires a small drill like my 90degree drill) and a 3/4" stepper bit.

The fronts are known to get pinched or clogged up too but mostly the rears, it builds up and runs over then runs down the headliner to the front or it just builds a puddle and when you aim the car down a hill it runs to the front and overflows.

to figure out the clogged hose get a cup of water, open the sunroof and poor it down the outermost channel, there are 2 on each side, one is the sunroof track and the other is a drain channel (the outside on each side). then watch for water to come from the drain outlet, fronts are infront of the front doors, rears drain infront of the rear wheels.

Air hose to blow out debree starting at the bottom and blowing it out the top, and cutting the tips off the nipples fixed my Commander.

Re: leaking inside of a 2005
The grands have a problem where the rear drain tubes got pinched shut from the expanding foam they put in the rear quarter pannel. There is no blowing them out. you will pop the hose before you blow them out. When they plug they are plugged solid thats why chrysler put out the procedure for running a new hoses. Only on the wk that I know of.
