Sunroof drain pipes??

Ive got a leak in my 106.

Ive sealed the aerial with silicone and was still getting the drip.

After removing the headlining i have found that the passenger side A pillar drain pipe is blocked. Im assuming this is the cause of my drips as the water has no where to go.

Ive tried using an airline an pipe cleaner thingy to clear the block with no success.

Can anyone tell me where the other end of this pipe is so i can attack it from that end.

Rich

Never heard of it?

The only pipes I know of that run through the roof skin is for the rear wiper washer fluid. Runs on drivers side, down to A pillar into wheel arch.

Yeah i reckon it could be the seal as well but having that drain pipe blocked wont be helping.

New seals expensive/cheap? Easy/difficult to fit?

Im this close to just sealing that stupid hole in the roof shut for good, whats the point of a smegging sunroof anyway!

You should have, if you remove the roof lining there will be a little black pipe from each of the front corners running down inside the A pillar.

But if you dont have a leak i wouldnt go ripping out the lining just out of curiosity

I think it's the seal dude but we can try and unblock it and see if it leaks then
I wouldn't put the lining back in till the leak is sorted cos you don't want it all getting wet again

Hey did you guys manage to fix this problem? My 106 xsi has a sunroof and ive just taken all the seat carpet out as the carpet and sound deadening are wet. Took the roof liner out and all of the roof is wet. Im pretty sure i need to seal the sh*t out of my sunroof. Im going to do the same with the aerial. Im not sure what else it can be?

Ive still got the poxy leak. After a lot of reading it seems that a lot of people are having a problem with the nearside drain pipe this is because apparently there is a bolt under the foot well which can pinch the pipe closed. I don't know exactly where this bolt is but i am going to find it and throw it in the ocean!!!!

Ive obviously got a problem with the seal itself because there is so much water coming through but according to peaugeot its not the seal itself that fails but the adhesive that holds it to the body.

Im attacking bolt problems on saturday, if i get any joy i shall let you know. If not you'll find me in the wanted section looking for a roof skin without a smegging hole in it!!!!

I had the same problem. Ended up taking my sunroof out completely, as the plastic frame had warped with the sun. Cleaned it all up and sealed the frame in with Loctite 598. Jobs a good un!

Took the whole sunroof assembly out yesterday and stripped it, cleaned it etc. The last owner (i presume) had kindly filled the tray with vasoline in a lame attempt to stop the leak. When i removed the seal there was no evidence of any form of sealant bonding the seal to the sunroof it just kinda sat in there. I put some sealant in there, refit the glass and re sealed the assembly back to the car.

Regarding the drain pipe i couldn't find any bolts pinching it closed and just persisted with the airline eventually got some air coming out from under the car. The location the water drains is where i would put an axle stand (theres those moulded arrows on the sideskirts) and it is just a tiny hole in the metal work so if anyone has jacked off of this point they could have easily closed it by bending metal etc.

It rained last night so I guess i will know if i was successful or not.

It would seem so yes

Sorry to jack this, but where abouts did the NS drain pipe go to please? My pigging s1 rallye decided to let itself drink 4l of water in the sill...ive had the jaking point welded as it was mashed to fook! I had a leak kn the OS of the car and it turned Out to be the drain pipe blokes, I just sprayed some brake cleaner down it and blew the hell outta it, but I think the NS one needs more attention. About at the end of my tether now. please help!
