If you have access to compressed air you can check the windshield seal easily by pouring soapy water on the top of the windshield and blasting the compressed air at the Inside of the windshield.bad sealing will show up right away with bubbles.

Hey Slayer, I don't really have anyone to help me with this. Would it be too much trouble to ask for pics of the channels and where it may be clogged? I'm looking now and have no clue, lol!

Sorry Glithero I don't have any pictures of where the drains are in the Jeeps.

The fronts are under the plastic deflector and the rears are normally as far back as they can be.

The way to try to test for them is get water is take a pitcher and start in the chanel if it does not drain with in a few seconds you know its clogged.

Newbie with a sky slider

Originally Posted by priebe View Post
To add my two cents. I had the same issue with my sunroof (not a Sky slider). The driver’s side drain was leaking at the joint where the hard plastic drain tube (inside the A pillar) meets the drain spout on the sunroof cartridge. Between the plastic drain tube and the cartridge drain spout is a 1.5” section of rubber hose that connects the two together. This rubber hose was well attached to the plastic drain tube but did not have a secure fit on the sunroof cartridge drain spout. I ran a bit of black RTV silicone around inside the rubber hose and slipped it back onto the sunroof drain spout. I then used the low E string from a bass guitar and plunged it into the drain spout from up top with the sunroof open to clear any RTV that may have slipped into the drain system. I have not had a problem since. I can only assume the Sky slider has a similar drainage system? Hope this helps.

I just bought a 2008 Jeep Liberty, with the sky slider, and it leaks when it rains. I tried to recreate with the water hose but no luck so far. I did take the A pillar and headboard apart and apparently i do not have a drain hose, like everyone talks about. Is that possible? I cannot even find a hole where the tube would be in the sky slider, and there is no drain hole in the floorboard. Why not? Pictures would be great, maybe i am looking in the wrong spot. I know this thread is old, but does anyone have a viable fix for the leaking? Its starting right at the front corner of the inside drivers side gasket area, and i also had water in the floorboard. There are a couple of other areas where water stains are too, on the passengers side in the same area, and even behind the drivers seat between the doors (in the heardboard area). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
