When its raining and i have the sunroof back open (im a cigar smoker) it sounds like there is water dripping, ive looked everywhere and there is no water dripping into the car from the sun roof vent being open but the sound is there, even my girlfriend noticed it the other day and asked what it was, at first i thought it was the lugage racks lose so i tighened them but the noise is still there.

Moon roof drain?
Water is leaking into that area and the drain(s) built in will allow the water to exit as designed. I know when my truck is sitting in rain and I go to move it I can hear the water rushing through the drains. I am sure it is louder if you have it cracked open.

You are probably hearing the drains on the sunroof surround working, they can make some noise while draining

Ok that makes a lot more sense now, didnt know the moon roof had rails for draining :) i was worried water was getting somewhere it wasnt supposed to.

Is it similar to a glug-glug-glug noise? If so, x2 on the moonroof drains. Spiders like to make nests in them. I clean mine out by inserting the rubber tip of a blowgun in the hose and carefully (not too much pressure) flowing enough air to flush out the offending bugger and his/her web.
