Hey Guys, its been a while since i posted on here, but i recently found out i have a leaking sunroof. It started after a good rain I had about 1in of water in the driver rear floor, not in the front but in the back...cleaned it out and I was thinking A-Pillar...so a while goes by and I went to get my car washed and when the guys was detailing the inside he calls me over and shows me that there is water dripping from the light above the rear door....so im thinking the seam that runs across the roof...well a few days later and another big rain and when i get into my car and back up I hear this rush of water over my head and i look behind me and the water is again dripping from the light above the rear door... so after the rain i look closely at my sunroof..it is level with the rest of the roof, and it looks to be in good cosmetic condition. but i can easily push my car key (it is what was in my hand at the time) between the sunroof and the car it just seamed to be too much space and not making a good seal...and this is all the way around front back and both sides...so my question is can i replace the liner?? or I was thinking of maybe a "Car magnet" to cover it while it rains??? any sugestions???

Lawsuit related to leaking 300c sunroofs

We are currently investigating claims from owners of 2006-2011 cRYSLER 300C'S that have had sunroof leaking problems that have not been repaired. Many drivers don't know that this problem is well known to Chrysler and its agents, who have refused to address and correct the faulty drainage tubes, claiming that the leaks result from other non-Chrysler factors and not covered under warranty. However, between 1999 and 2010 Chrysler issued no less than NINE Technical Service Bulletins addressing the issue of faulty drainage tubes and water leaks.

The leaks can cause the following physical damages:

• Degradation of structural components, wiring and passenger cabin;
• Shorts in the electrical circuitry;
• Engine stalls;
• Instrument malfunctions in seat and window controls;
• Standing water on floors and mats leading to degradation of floor carpeting and
sub-structure;
• Water stains;
• Hazardous mold and mildew, with associated smells;
• Dampened and damaged interior seats and headrests;
• Weakened components and structures; and
• Rust.

If you have experienced this problem please reply or send me an email at [email protected]. Thanks all and thanks to the webmaster for maintaining such a comprehensive site.

Find the post on recalibrating the sunroof.

The dealer did that to my 2007 and didn't tell me but did told me the glass needed to be replaced but, of course, that wasn't covered under warrany since it was just the seals that needed to be replaced but they are glued to the glass.

Anyway, since I had had a terrible time with this dealer and I noticed the glass seemed more even with the roof, I looked it up on here and determined that was all they had done and that it actually fixed the leak.

I had this problem when I bought my 07 used. It's a rather easy fix. First, you need to calibrate it. Start there. It takes two people.

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
Sunroof does not fully close (fit flush to roof) and/or fully vent and/or is noisy at the end of
full open travel.
DIAGNOSIS:
1. Verify the rear of the sunroof glass to roof flushness concern.
2. **UNCALIBRATE THE SUNROOF.
a. Insure the battery is at least 12 Volts.
b. Place the ignition switch in RUN position.
c. Locate the sunroof fuse (Fuse 44 in the Power Distribution Center located in the
trunk).
d. While the sunroof is still in motion, have an assistant remove the sunroof fuse.
e. Reinstall the sunroof fuse.
3. RECALIBRATE THE SUNROOF
a. Press and hold the sunroof vent switch until it stops at the full vent position.
b. Verify sunroof operation by opening, closing, and venting the sunroof.
c. If the uncalibrate/recalibrate procedure corrected the sunroof glass to roof fit,
perform the Repair Procedure.
4. If the uncalibrate/recalibrate procedure did not eliminate the sunroof glass to roof fit,
use the procedures outlined in TechCONNECT® BODY/SUNROOF/GLASS
PANEL/ADJUSTMENTS to adjust the glass panel. If the sunroof glass is now flush,
perform the Repair Procedure.**
Once it's calibrated, let it go back to its resting position. From there, pop off the plastic accordion style covers on the sides. You'll see 4 torx head screws holding the glass in place. AFTER calibrating, adjust the sunroof to fit properly. It's handy to have two people for this as well, one inside the car with a screwdriver and pushing up, and one outside to push the glass back down when you push it too high.

After you get it lined up nicely, lube the gasket/seal. I use VW/Audi grease which is a thick yellow grease, probably stickier and thicker than axle grease, because that's what my mechanic buddy keeps on-hand.

After you've done all of that, you should be good, unless the gasket/seal is dry rotted/torn/worn out.
