Q: Sunroof leak

asked by on February 08, 2016

There is a leak in the sunroof.

Leaking sunroofs are never fun to repair. Most of the time the problem on your car is clogged sunroof drains. With the sunroof open use compressed air to blow the drains clear. If they are clear or if this does not fix it then the sunroof would typically need to be taken apart and the seals replaced.
