Default Sunroof seal on 2002 SSEi

I just got my 02 SSEi last week and everything has been good except for when i went through the automatic carwash last friday and got some water leaking around the head liner. I did a little investigating on here and read about the drain hoses possibly being obstructed, so i used some compressed air to flush them out but they really didn't seem to be the problem. i noticed today though that when the sunroof is in the all the way closed position it'* almost too low, to the point that there is a gap between the back side of the glass and the car.





When i just slightly raise the sunroof it meets more flush, like in the picture below. This picture below is how the sunroof should look in the "down" position right?



I did notice that these screws in the picture below were loose and when in the down position i can actually push up on the glass and cause it to move due to these screws being loose.



The car'* going to the dealership tomorrow to have an unrelated issue corrected. Is it possible that this leaking could be due to the sunroof frame being loose and not being aligned properly? Thanks alot for any input or ideas.

Default me too.. maybe

i have what seems to be the same problem with my car. i really didnt know what to do with it.. for awhile it was being really slow to open or close. then one day it seemed to come off of a track or something -- and from the outside of the car, it looks similar to yours. the right rear part of my sunroof is not being pushed up all the way to make a seal..

i ended up making the seal myself with a lot of clear caulking that you'd use in your bathtub. it seemed like an expensive problem to fix correctly.

Update: the slot those screws go into allows you to adjust the height of the glass. im assuming you could loosen those screws, push the glass up to the correct position so it makes a seal and then re-tighten the screws. the dealer fixed mine while the car was in to have other things serviced and it'* back to normal.
