    Re: Roof/Sunroof leak. Drain tubes ???

    I've had the same problem, and after hours of troubleshooting i found that the sunroof tray leaks at several seams along the sunroof tray. Just aft of the forward drain tubes theres a bracket that attaches to the tray. When the drain tube can't handle the amount of leakage, water leaks through these seams, in fact in pours out. my car is in the shop to see if these seams can be sealed but to get at them the head liner has to be partially removed. $$$$$ $$$$. I'll never have another car with a sun roof. Hope this helps you.. The same condition is at the rear drains, but i was able to seal the seams my self.. it's a pain for sure.. hope you get your leaks fixed.

    Re: Roof/Sunroof leak. Drain tubes ???

    Great forum guys, got simple question on this subject. Anyone know on my 2110 DeVille DHS, where are the bottom end of the drain tubes located? I've tried fishing some weed eater line down and both sides seem to stop right about at the bottom of the windshield, so I'm guessing the tube are disconnected. I want to try fishing from the bottom up if possible to see they are disconnect or not...

    Looks like I may also need to replace the seal on glass as well, it's looking a little dry rotted.

    The front drain tubes run across the headliner and down the A-pillars, exiting down just inside the lower part of the plastic fenderwell liners. The rears run across and down the sail pillars, into the trunk at the wheelwell tops and down and out.

    The lower ends are fitted with razzmatazz flapper valves - they fill with dust mud and stick shut. Cut them off.

    If your post doesn't get much atterntion in this dead thread I'll move it up to its own thread in Deville.
