2013 Compass Water Leak

Newb here.I own a 2013 Jeep Compass with a sunroof and have noticed 1 time that water was leaking from the dome light pod located nearest the windshield. Is this the sunroof drain tube problem? I have full warranty so Im curious to know whether there is anyone that knows a Jeep dealership in Ottawa Canada or close to it that has experience with this problem and wont destroy my interior. Also I have noticed a clicking sound in the dash when riding over bumps, any idea? One more thing, are the struts supposed to sound like the mounts are done or is that just me? 12k in and im glad it has warranty. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Regarding the water leak - the dealer may or may not have to touch the interior to fix the issue. They should check to see if the drainage system is plugged, before checking if the drain hose is disconnected.

From the factory service manual:
Adequate drainage is provided by a drain trough in the sunroof housing which encircles the sliding glass panel and leads to drain hoses. If a wet headliner or other water leak complaints are encountered, before performing any adjustments, first ensure that the drainage system is not plugged or disconnected. Use a pint container to pour water into the sunroof housing drain trough. If water flow is restricted, use compressed air to blow out any material plugging the drain system. Retest system again.
Sorry, I can't help with the name of a dealer in your area. You might want to call; sometimes they outsource that type of work to a water leak expert.
