Well with the rains we’ve had I’m sure you’re aware if your sunroof on your Subaru leaks or not. If it leaks there are a few things you can check that may help. If you own a 2000-2004 and some water comes out of the map light, there is a Subaru technical bulletin that addresses where to put some sealant to solve it.
There are also some simple things to do if the sunroof leaks. First of all open it fully and use compressed air to blow out any debris from the channel as well as the front drain holes. Once you do this, pour water in the sunroof channel to see how quickly it drains. If it still drains slow you have a problem further downstream.
Usually we find that mud and road silt has built up in the sunroof drain area behind the front fender liners. Once you clean the muck out of these it usually solves the problem.
If it still has issues the headliner may need removal to inspect the sunroof drain lines (any model). Sometimes we find they are kinked or possibly disconnected from the sunroof altogether.
Simply put, the sunroof is supposed to leak water but it’s supposed to catch it and drain it away in all circumstances.
