    well the sunroof is leaking water from the rain, how can I fix this? I found an old thread where someone suggested opening the sunroof and shooting compressed air troughout the lines to fix possible clogged drain tubes.

    Where are this drain tubes? where exactly should I blow compressed air to try to fit it before taking it to the stealership?

    THX in advance

    I wouldn't even want to mess around with that. It could be poor alignment, just a rubber seal, could be a crack. Who the hell knows.

    Probably just needs adjusting how the glass is more snug with the seal... take it to the dealer

    The leaking is not too much, but enough to make me uncomfortable with it being there.

    Look slike I will have to take it to the stealership

    I personally wouldn't hesitate to take it back to the dealership to have the problem corrected.

    Girlfriend's brand new 08 toyota solara convertible leaked like a MOTHERFUCKER where the top meets the top of the windshield. Wind noise was crazy on the interstate too... took it to the dealer and all they had to do is adjust the locks to make them tighter, no more leaking of air or water. Shit like that happens even on new vehicles.

    I could diagnose it better if you knew the area where it was leaking, I used to ME the assembly line that made them, the sunroofs for the GMT900 that is.

    The main drain lines will be at the front corners, there will be a plastic drip tray with a hole in each front corner, there are barbed tubes on the outer edge that's hidden behind the headliner that run out to the door jambs. The glass will be adjustable as well, but you might let the dealer do that.

    Quick check, with the sunroof closed, from the outside, take a business card or something similar, dollar bills work too, and try to run it between the weatherstrip around the glass and the roof. It shouldn't be able to just slide right through anywhere. If you find a spot that does slide right through then the glass needs adjusted.
