How To Fix Your Leaky Sunroof

February 18th, 2020 by

Having a sunroof can be amazing but when raindrops and leaves start falling on your head this can be a sign that your sunroof drains are clogged. Luckily you can easily fix this yourself in a matter of minutes. 


Start by first opening your sunroof and search for drain holes in the front or back corners of the sunroof. Now that you have successfully found the drains, start by duct taping a small rubber or plastic tube at the very end of your shop vacuum or vacuum cleaner. Begin vacuuming up all of the debris stuck inside of the drains. 

Once that is a complete start to dribble water into each drain and check underneath your car to see if it’s draining out onto your driveway or garage floor. If your drain is still plugged despite doing this buy a speedometer cable, you can buy this from any auto parts store. Simply insert the speedometer cable inside of the drain and gently push down as you spin the cable using your hand. 


Make sure not to push too hard, because you don’t want to puncture your drain tubes. Doing this can result in water from the drain tubes falling into your dash are. Then you can flush the drain once you have finished snaking drain tubes using the speedometer cable. If the drain tubes is able to run freely, then you are finally done with fixing your leaky sunroof.
