and the saga continues..... so I got a gallon jug full of water and opened the sunroof to expose the two front drain holes. dumped a little water down the passanger side and no problem... waters flows down nicely, end up with a puddle behind the tire... inspect the lines dont see any leaks or water any where.

do the same on the drivers side and water flows nicely only instead of puddle behind the tire I have a couple drops behind the tire and a puddle in the drivers seat. Inspect the line again to discover that the backside of the line has about a 1 inch slit cut into it that runs parellel along the line... gonna figure out how to patch this one... I am open for suggestions.

Go to do the same thing with the rear drains only when I pour a little water into the sunroof frame close to the back on the passanger side it doesn't go anywhere.... so I re-reinspect both of the back lines and find so serouisly kinked/ pinched lines that I wanted to kick myself for not seeing the first time I looked...

This was the passanger side rear...

Well atleast you found the problem.I had to replace some of my front drain hose and I bought some clear hose from a place called princess auto, you could probably get it from hardware store.I also had twist ties on mine, I think they come from the factory like that.They arent connected well behind the dash either, Ive had 2 come apart and had to fish the hose thru the dash to repair it.After its fixed dry out the floor and carpet you dont want a floor like Haros

well..... Day two of this madness..... I went and bought some good hose clamps and some silcone tape last night and went back to it this morning.

Sealed up the front tube that had cracked and decided to test everything one last time before putting it all back together again. The Back two flow like niagra falls. no problems there... so then I test the front passanger which was flowing fine yesterday... now it doesnt flow at all and seems to be leaking into the floor boards. The Drivers side is "Draining" but not where it should be... it is leaking down through some little gap where two pieces of metal come together almost driectly underneith the drivers seat......... GRRRR!!!!


I love my bonnie, I love my bonnie, I love my bonnie, I love my bonnie.......

check this link again: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...hlight=sunroof

it is leaking where you can't see it. there is no way to fix it without cutting away at the rubber.

make a flap instead of cutting it out completely like I did the first time. I learned from my mistake

Exactly where did you cut on the front passagner side?


I guess I am going to go tackle the drivers side first. then the passenger.

passenger is easier, as you dont have to remove the parking brake pedal.

if you crawl down there, you should be able to match it up with this pic.

all right.... I found where its suppose to be.... but I have yet to find a way to twist my fat butt around enough to get to it. Also not really wild about trying to cut something up in there with all those wires around. How do those big blue and black wire connectors come apart?
