've been here tinkering with this sunroof kind of running it back and forth. And and i'm watching it as it parks and when we get to the park. I can see that this area of the seal is a little bit more uh compressed than the rest of it and if i look over here. I see kind of a gap.

It's it's just not not sitting as flush as i think it could be against the body unfortunately. I think i'm gonna have to pull the headliner down and see if something on this track in here is broken. If you look a little farther back. It's definitely definitely coming in look at there look at that it's pouring in found it all right let's get out of here and shut this water off before i flood this guy's car nobody wants to see their luxury car looking like this this is not very luxurious.

Oh. By the way for everybody who was wondering yes all of these drains are clear. I have blown them out and cleared them and while the headliner was removed. I disconnected them blew them out again.

And i actually injected water through them. Which it does drain at the appropriate areas by the wheel well so and the front ones as well so everybody's doing what it's supposed to be doing. It's not a drain issue the drains do work. It's just when water's coming in here.

It's coming in too fast. And it just cannot make its way out of that drain in time it's just overwhelming that drain. I know what you're saying normal rainstorms are not the garden hose treatment. Unless you're in florida.

We actually have rain that does this.

    Waste of time. Another problem unsolved

    Southern downpours used to be called gully washers. Stay safe Brother

    I live in jacksonville, do you have any advice for my 2008 jaguar xk coupe which blower motor basically stopped receiving power? when i start the car it spins for half a second. I replaced blower motor, resistor (twice resistor just to see) and all related fuses.

    The drive is on cog off on one side, make it relearn the closing sequence. As many have said in the first video. See bowhunter's reply below?

    It is funny how a U.K. designed car cannot cope with the rain saying that at the end of this week we are expecting record temperatures of 40 Celsius luckily the AC in my GM designed car is working fantastic

    It has issues with compression? Maybe a little Prozac would help. 😉

    My architect friends always avoided skylights. Frank Lloyd Wright said there's 2 kinds of roofs, those that leak and those that will leak.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Sherman says:

    Mississippi is pretty bad too. I live in New England and I've seen heavy rain here, but heavy rains in Mississippi (and Florida — and probably the whole gulf coast!) take things to a whole new level!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dropdoc says:

    That sunroof was not Parking. First you should have tried the allen crank to see if it would manually park then recalibrate the closed position.

    Press the sunroof switch forward to move the sliding roof panel into the tilted position.

    Release the sunroof switch.

    Press and hold the sunroof switch forward until the sliding roof panel moves slightly. This may take 30 seconds or more.

    Release the sunroof switch.

    Immediately press and hold the sunroof switch in the forward position. The sliding roof panel will move down and rearward to the open position, and then forward into the closed position. Do not release the sunroof switch until the sliding roof panel has stopped completely.

    Your sunroof panel should now be aligned.

    Every single Cadillac I have ever owned has had a problem with the sunroof trains either coming disconnected or play disconnected or plugging up

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Hatrick says:

    Welp, time to scrap it. It's jag. Fix or Repair daily Hahahaha

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Wyoming says:

    There's only so much you can do for a leaky sunroof. Replace the seal. Adjust the glass per the manual. I guess maybe, replace the lift arms.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Moore says:

    Call that kind of rain" turd floaters " in Oklahoma.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blain5700 says:

    Is the seal in backwards?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John T. says:

    I'm still wondering if the seal was put in place equally and not tight one side causing it to be stretched and narrow, while the other side is slacker.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michael moore says:

    How did you get the headliner out of the car without pulling the windsheild or back glass?

    Say Ray. I wish I was there to help you with that sunroof leak repair.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryu Lee says:

    Damn Ray so did you fix the situation?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lex luther says:

    Seen this alot working for vw/audi. Replace the sunroof body seal, adjust the sunroof position with a helper then perform a sunroof basic setting with the scantool. If the sunroof isn't adjusted properly even with a new seal they will either leak, or make a God awful noise when the glass is opened. Also make sure no water has gotten into the door panels, which is also very common with sunroof leaks. This can cause water to pool inside near the door speakers.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DB 9066 says:

    Wow, thanks for the update

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan S says:

    I forgot about this car what’s taking forever to get it fixed are you waiting on parts

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HouseCallAutoRepair says:

    The double sunroof/moonroof did a pee pee on me through the map light fixture, because of a torrential downpour!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C Nalley says:

    How much did you charge dude for labor and that seal??? That wasn't the issue. And your editing as always is spot on avoiding your mistake. But at least you may have found the problem. Still, love your channel bro. But dang ..

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N F says:

    worked on a murano w/a leak. panoramic window seal leaking, sunroof part & drains good. headliner & sunroof assy removed out the back. not too hard, but being warranty repair got raped on time

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kiwibob 🇺🇦 says:

    If you look at reflection of the lights in paint on edge of opening you can see leading edge of roof has a slight buckle (ass cheek shape, see previous comment)

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin.S says:

    this is why i wont have a sunroof lol. when i was a kid we had a jeep with a sunroof. it was fine for a while then the screw that opened n close it stripped and it was super expensive so my dad got it closed and we left it that way lol. it would still leak a little at times but not much, and we wasnt in FL lol.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kiwibob 🇺🇦 says:

    Owners son took car out and his girlfriend got the boys out, if you know what I'm saying, and sat on edge of roof and flashed a bus full of oldies on a day out to the beach.
    Or something else?
