Default Leaky Sunroof


I recently called my local Saturn (Saturn of Rockford) to see what it would cost to put a new liner on around my sunroof (leaks onto my driverside seat) and they said the only way they can get it is if i replace the glass and all for $325! Does anybody have any advice for buying things such as that online?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Have you checked your sunroof drain hoses to make sure they're clear?

I forget if there's one or two, but it/they run from the sunroof down to the trunk drainage area. I've not done any of this myself, but a quick search should find some threads with instructions.

The glass part of the sun roof is not supposed to seal up and prevent all water from getting through. As mentioned there are sun roof drains that are supposed to take the water away from the sunroof module. There is a drain hose at each corner of the sunroof to run the water out. They can get plugged and they can come off of the sunroof. To check you would need to remove the head liner from the car/drop it down from the roof.

Also if you have access to an air compressor you can blow them out with that.

Default Sunroof Leak - Easy Fix

Hi, Had the same leaks from my sun room on '07 Vue. Trash colllects in there, especially if you are anywhere under trees. To clean the sun roof drains, get a really long, thin piece of flexible wire (like a long twist tie), baking soda and white vinegar. There is a drain on either side of the front roof, tucked away in the front corners of the roof--hard to see. Vac out as much as you think you can see (air hose only made mine worse). Carefully, gently, stuff good old fashioned baking soda into hole using flexible wire, then follow with white vinegar, again and again. Lots o' bubbling happens. Eventually you will see liquid coming out of the drain holes at the bottom of your side panel. Takes about 20 minutes or less. Probably would do well to do this periodically. Hope this helps you.
