Default Roof water leak?!?!?

Ok, hear this one...
I'm sitting in my school parking lot and i look up at the headliner. not something i usually do. well there are salt stains near the oh **** handles!!!!! i don't think that a sunroof leak would get over to the edge of the car without leaving a trace, so how is that water coming in! i don't want to ruin this car by letting that one go unfixed. any ideas... please....

Check the drain Holes in the front corners, they may be plugged

I had the same markings in the 94. I watched it from time to time and had no leaks. It almost looked like it was washed at some point since the markings were white in color.

Could this be caused by condensation now that its cold out? I never seen mine wet either. Mystery.

It'* the angle your car was parked at, coupled with a plugged drain or two or three or four.

Water is allowed to leak past the seal. Then it should drain down the A and C pillars. If it can't, it overflows into the headliner.

Ah... ok. I though that it would show up arround the sunroof itself rather then the handels...

So, are those drains easily cleaned? is this something that an air compressor can do?

Darrel:
It'* the rear drain tube from your sunroof.
It has become disconnected, and the water drains down the headliner, past the holy sh*t handle, then goes for a ride down the rear interior panel, by the back window, then ends up under the back seat. It then cascades down into the rear floor pan.

I went through the whole mess, check my post: Water water everywhere.

Now that I have re-connected my drain tubes with a small hose clamp, and am satisifed no more water is getting in, I cleaned the salt stains with carpet cleaner foam and a brush.

Drop your head liner, grab a flash light, and see if those tubes are connected!
