My sunroof leaks like no ones business and I just want to remove it and have it filled in.


99% of the time when a sunroof leaks it's clogged drain holes. Even when the roof is closed water will get between the glass and the roof surrounding it - but that's why the drains are there.
I just went though this with my car. A few small Live Oak leaves were stuck in there and during heavy rain it would leak.
Also, check to make sure the drain tubes haven't been obstructed.
Time to get up there with a hose and test out the drains.


The glass has separated from the seal and a couple parts that are responsible for pushing the sunroof up and flush with the roof are broken....lost cause, I just want it out

When I first got the car was like "yeaaah, a sunroof" now I'm like "what a pain in my a$$"


And to think, I had an aftermarket sunroof put into mine! (What? I was 18 and stupid at the time I did that back in 1993) I'd like to seal mine back up too. However, if I had a power roof I'd keep it. I constantly have the roof open in my DD. It was open all afternoon today. 75 and sunny, how could I not have.

That's actually pretty low mileage for that car. Most of the GA's have 160k+ if they're still around b/c of the fantastic MPG

Put it up on jack stands, drained transmission fluid, changing oil pan gasket, found several leaks.....and my front transmission mount took a shit on me. Time for some serious TLC underneath....

You really had leaks from the oil pan? I had just redone that with permatex. Were the bolts loose or something?

More than likely a loose bolt, I know you were thorough in your work...I just made a split decision while I was under there to just give it a good clean up is all

WOW.... that looks like, seriously brand new. I mean like as if you took that photo in 1992 or something and just found it. Or time traveled. It looks completely restored

Thanks Jordan...

Believe me when I tell you the car is riddled with cosmetic defects....the clear coat is completely shot. Every time I wax it I take more and more off. Thanks a lot for the compliment though. By the way, diggin' your music, saw your you-tube videos....

Rolled up the "garage door" and let her (the SE-R) breath a bit. White is so forgiving.
