The weather strip around the glass can be tattered and in horrible case but there is really very good drainage in the channels under each corner of the sunroof that carries the water away so unless one or more of those aren't clogged, it's most likely the water finding its way under the glass (rust). The problem is more common than maybe you might realize. I hope for polizei, however, that this isn't the case. I guess I should have suggested first that he check the drain holes...that they aren't clogged. Then, if they aren't he check for the rust. <p>Btw, if you open the sunroof slightly and look up, if rust is the problem you can usually see a bit of it around the front edge. I had this and thought this is all the rust I had until I took the sunroof out and checked further....then I found that the sunroof frame the glass is glued to was all eaten up with it. <p>But like I said, I hope this isn't the case for polizei.

Drain holes are the likely culprits

Re: (polizei)

I'm second on the possibility of <B>RUST</B>. You can read my comments with pics in the topic linked by MIJ. I had <B>RUST</B> there in <B>TWO</B> of <B>MINE</B> cars (850 and S70). 850 had the same (ok, almost as yours) leak through the roof liner. And I thought, "drains clogged", you can search on my post on "How to ". But it wasn’t the case.. <br> BTW it's not necessary to have sunroof's frame get rusted to have a leak. The weather strip has a steel base inside that could develops the rust inside the seal, so seal looses the shape and doesn't sit tight on the frame anymore.. That's it..<p><BR><BR>

Re: (Papa_Kirlo)

I have a 93 850 which is leaking as well. From the pictures and explanation in your referenced thread earlier, if I understand correctly, the frame is on/around the glass itself? There appears to be a rubber gasket or keeper type seal touching the glass and also the seal that touches the roof too. Is the frame under that? Also, are you saying that you can use some sealer such as a glass wet glaze at the junction between the glass and this rubber keeper to temp fix this problem? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

I have a leaking sunroof too, however it seems to be cause by the gasket, I noticed a bubble, and the water seems to come in from there, as if I open the sunroof upwards, and let the water drain away from the whole I get no water in the car...<br>Thanks<br>

i checked my drains and the fronts appear to be fine, not sure if there are rear drains. But i noticed the seal around the glass is old and cracking and the probably cause of my leakiness. anyone have any idea how much it is to replace?
