    Sunroof Leaks??



    Fix it now before you get nasty stains on your seats that don't come out with branded cleaners that you would possibly chip out ££'s for. Do it before this happens. Trust me i know!
    (My passenger seat has got a dirty outline of water)

    Sunroof Removal Guide


    Close the sunroof
    Turn the little silver screw on the inside approx 90 degrees, don't force it any more than it wants to go
    Push quickly on the rear of the sunroof from the inside, it will pop up
    Holding it up, you will see a little catch on the right if looking to the rear
    Release the catch, and raise the sunroof out of the car


    Basically, one of the seals in the sunroof was gone and one of the drainage holes was slightly blocked....the exact same symptoms were there in my situation, angle of car, where the water went..etc.


    Clean and flush all 4 drainage holes...then for good measure unscrew the 4 screws that hold the lifter and the 4 screws on the on two slots for the front of the sunroof.

    Pull down the roof inside at the front and remove the plastic holders...pull of the old seal, and liberally apply translucent silicone sealant around all the seals of the 3 pieces you removed. refit, silicone some more, screw tight, silicone the screw heads

    refitting
    Refitting is reverse of removal
    For help though, when turning the screw back up, get someone to push down on the sunroof the help it meet the thread

    Difficulty Rating:★★☆☆☆
