Spring Showers

Spring will soon be here and along with the spring showers those of us that have sunroofs could find water entering our vehicles.

Sunroofs are not water tight and have water coming in around the felt seal on the glass. The water enters a channel and is directed to drain tubes that carry the water out of our cars. 

Dead leaves coming off the trees in the fall and spring pollen along with the dirt that gets washed in to this channel can stop up the drains causing the channel to over flow. Now we see water in the floor of our vehicles when the spring rains come. 

To prevent this from happening you should open the sunroof while cleaning your vehicle and wipe out the channel. If it is too late and the drain is stopped up it will need to have the drain tubes flushed out.
