I'm sorry, but have you seen this happen? IIRC the sunroof drain hose does not go anywhere near where the leak is happening. The sunroof drain hose runs along the front header and down the A pillar and out of the car. Any leaks would occur:

1) in the roof - if the hose separated from the metal nipple in the sunroof channel

2) in the roof header - if the hose cracked between the nipple and the A pillar

3) in the footwell *along* the door - if the hose cracked in the A pillar.

I *thought* Jesse said his problem/leak occurred in the footwell alongside the *console*. Can't see how the leak from the sunroof would get there.


The sunroof may not leak but the drainage
tubes off the sunroof may be clogged or draining
water onto your floor.

Check sunroof for leaks that can trickle their way down to the floor.
