Leaking A-Pillar
Has anyone ever had their A-Pillar leak water when it rained? It was coming in to the cabin through the screw covers of the handle on the A-Pillar. Im assuming the wind shield gasket/seal is not doing its job anymore?

Your sunroof drain is clogged. Do a search and you can get details to clean it.

Mine did it on both of my WK's. The sunroof drain may be clogged like goflick says. It also might be out of alignment. Ha I used to push on the sunroof a little bit and pop it flush before I went through the car wash.... that's before i knew how to re-set it.

There's a button combination you need to press in order to re-calibrate your sunroof.

Here's a copy and paste from something Scott posted a while back.

Vehicle: 2006 (DR) Ram Truck, 2005 - 2006 (LX) 300/Charger/Magnum, 2005 - 2006 (WK) Grand Cherokee, 2006 (XK) Commander
Concern: The rear of the sunroof glass is not flush with the roof of the vehicle. Possible windnoise or water leak.
Cause: Out of calibration
Resolution: First, UNCALIBRATE THE SUNROOF. Place the ignition switch in RUN position. Locate the sunroof fuse (Fuse 44 in the Power Distribution Center located in the trunk). While the sunroof is still in motion, have an assistant remove the sunroof fuse. Reinstall the sunroof fuse. Now, RECALIBRATE THE SUNROOF. Press and hold the sunroof vent switch until it stops at the full vent position. Verify sunroof operation by opening, closing, and venting the sunroof.
Details: If the above procedure is sucessful, have dealer reprogram/update the sunroof control module with new software.

Re: Leaking A-Pillar
Mine is leaking through the two small covers where the screws are located on the drivers side. I dont have a sunroof. I think its getting in from the roof rack screws, which I removed the entire roof rack system and plugged the holes with plastic plugs set in sealant. Guessing I didnt put enough sealant in. I'm too lazy to redo it and see if in fact thats the problem, since when its not raining and leaking I forget about it.
