Leaking Sunroof


Recommended Posts

Is anyone else having issues with there sunroof leaking? Today marks 1 year owning my 2020 AT4 1500 and I just dropped it off for the 3rd time at the dealer for my sunroof leaking. First time in they said nothing was wrong. Second time in they said they had to adjust it because it wasn’t sitting flush. Today I dropped it off and they said there going to replace the seal around the sunroof. Every time I can visually see water dripping across the front of the sunroof into my headliner. I know I have read a lot of people having issues with the rear window leaking but no so much sunroofs.

Drain tubes/lines can get clogged with dirt and debris causing water to back up and leak into the interior. Usually dealers will check these lines and unclog them for these kinds of issues.

 

I had a 2008 that had this same issue and water leaked on my lap after a rain one day.   It was only 2 years old when this happened but at the time I had no garage and parked outside all the time. Lots of dust and pollen mixed with water over time clogged the drain lines. Dealer unclogged the lines and everything was fine. Never leaked again.

Mine leaks during a car wash. On the rear side. Haven’t experienced a leak any other time, could be mine just leaks under pressure. It’s garaged most of the time. I would guess you got a shitty install at the factory

Great info. Location of the drain lines I guess this can be done by the owner?

One of the reasons I'll never own a sunroof. But you can do it yourself, open the sunroof in the 2 corners you will see a hole little smaller then a pencil those are the drain holes take a cup of water and dump down the hole and see if it goes down if not then its plugged now you can take some weedeater string don't use metal coat hanger or bailing wire as some of those drain tubes are plastic or rubber and you can poke a hole in the line or you can use a can of compressed air and blow down the hole to clear it out if the caned air doesn't work and it blows back at you then your going to need a compressor psi turned down way low with a blow tip.

Thanks for the info. I'm not big on the sunroof but finding one with the options I wanted was tough.  it was part of the package on this truck.

My 20 year old truck leaked when I first got it. I don’t think it ever saw rain with the original owner. I just sealed it. Don’t use them anyway. Every sun roof vehicle iv owned doesn’t seal. They have drains.
