Alert me when someone posts in this thread:


Had the same problem with my '95. Remove the hatch carpet (4 plastic plugs - move the rear seat back forward a bit to get at the plugs and for carpet removal), remove the plastic sill plate where the bottom latch is located (13mm bolts for the lugs, T25 fittings if memory serves), pull up the carpet pieces by the back corners and check if the sun roof drains are fitted into the plastic plugs and that the lines are clear. Seems they work out of the friction fit plug over time. Pour some water into your open sunroof rail area and see if the water drains out of the lines and overboard as a check when you're done. I ended up using some epoxy to hold mine in place but would have rather used silicon sealant but none on hand.

Soggy carpet was a problem but pulled that up a bit and put some plastic cups under the pad to help get some airflow around the carpet to dry it out. Wet-Dry shop vac will help to suck up the excess water. My car has been dry since...

Hope this helps ya.
