Re: Sunroof

I just had my 07' XR in for that same thing, the water was dripping by where the glove box is. It was fixed under this bulletin ID# 2146761. They had to reseal a body seam in the cowl area. The tech also inspected and cleaned the sunroof drain lines.

Re: Sunroof

Just to add to the pain - yesterday evening there was a short downpour and I ran in the car to inspect how is the "water flowing" - beside the the passenger side at the glovebox corner, water drips off the parking brake pedal on the driver side and soaking the carpet below
Hopefully they will be able to seal it off

Re: Sunroof

Update: got mine back. Quick garden hose test does not reveal further leaking. However I think it is too early to celebrate (judging from others experience in this thread). I guess it will show next time it rains. This year we seem to get pretty wet weather up here in Toronto, I am sure it is going to be soon..

Re: Sunroof

Mine has gone in 3 times for this issue. It has not rained yet so the true test cannot be done untill then. Mine only leaked when it rained and not the carwash , but whatever I was assured it is completly fixed so we will see and I hope it is fixed.

Did they do both sides? Do you have luggage racks & did you have them seal the bolts on them as well?

Sorry if you answered this earlier couldn't find it.

Both sides leaked on mine at different times and water came in around the luggage rack seams.

They say it is from the fittings that connect drain tubes. First time they told me they added extensions only. I mentioned roof rails - they say it is not leaking from there "we checked". We'll see... First time I reported leaks on both sides, I assume they have done both sides (extensions - that's what paperwork says at least).
The car is still in (waiting for whatever those parts are to arrive)

Re: Sunroof

The part is a piece of rubber hose from a fuel line ( it is used as an extension to the drain from the hose). I don't think they know what they are doing. Good luck.

Re: Sunroof

Well, it looks like I am joining the club I noticed a bit of moisture under the emergency break pedal a few days ago after a major storm; thought maybe I didn't fully close the driver window or smth like that. Next big rainfall the car stayed dry so I thought we were OK. Today, it rained like **** and of course I got water; it looks like it is coming from above the emergency break pedal, going over the plastic pilar. Both cases, the car was level. Never had the problem before....I don't drive with the sunroof open on the highway but frequently enjoy it with low speeds in city driving, maybe I should have kept it close all the time

My biggest problem is that we are camping now and the water is dripping where my trailer break controller is connected - lots of electrical stuff in this corner under the plastic....still have 500 miles to get back home in the next two days...
