Customer Question

OK, I'll give you a try. 2003 f150 with sunroof leak. All of a sudden very wet passenger seat after a rain. Never been in an accident or had damage to sunroof, and it seems to close all rhe way if you look from above. One friend says there should be drains for water that gets past the sunroof. Sounds odd, and there are no obvious drain holes. Another says the seal is old and needs replacing. Truck is not garage kept, lives outside sitting in the sun. I am willing to spin a wrench. Tell me what the odds are on the drain versus worn seal argument, or are we missing another likely cause?

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

Both friends could be correct.

Some of these have 4 little drain holes on the rear of the sun roof. This way when the water gets into the track ares, the water drains back. You should be able to blow them out with compresed air.

On another note, try lubricating the seal for the sun roof with a white lithium grease or mineral oil on a rag. If the seal has dried up a bit, it can harden some and will not seal well causing a leak to go by. Then us a water hose and see if you still get a leak. If so, check the seal for any hardness/stiffness. If it is hard, that is where the water is getting by from the sun damage to the seal. Then you will just have to replace the seal.

After replacing the seal, since it is kept outside, once a month use a armor all on the seal as you clean it and the seal will stay not and soft and will keep the water out.
