'08 Compass - Water leaks, not sure where to post
Ok guys, so I have seen about 6,000 threads on this so far. '08 Compass w/ sunroof. Took it on a trip the first day we had it, and in the sun everything was great. Rain starts, water from the dome light. Clogged drain tubes. Went out to Walmart mid-trip, grabbed compressed air and weed eater line and cleared the tubes. No more leaky dome light! Rained the whole way home, and I noticed the front passenger carpet was damp. Rear passenger carpet soaked. Took it back to the dealership who told me it was most likely water that had been there since before I cleared the drain tubes. Ok, so they cleaned / dried the carpets for me.
Well, today the carpets were almost 100% dry and a light rain hit my wife on the way home. Carpets are wet again in the back, though she said not as bad as the first time. No water from the dome light, so at least that part of the problem is solved. I now have two, maybe three questions.
First question: Is this leak still likely to be from the drain tubes? Is it likely at all that the passenger side tube came off of the drain port or has a bad seal and is still draining into the car? If that is not likely, then where else would the water be likely coming from? A door seal, or a vent somewhere?
Second question: When I reach up under the (closed) sunroof, on both the front left and front right corners during a rain I can feel water coming in past the seal. It is somewhere between dripping and running. It seems like a lot of water. Should I attempt to have the sunroof seal changed?
Last question: Should I choose to replace the seal, is it a difficult process? Also, would recalibrating the sunroof help this issue at all, and should I try that?
It's a real shame we had this issue. My wife and I both really love the thing, and even in spite of this problem I still like the car quite a bit. She is (mostly) happy so I am happy. We are having the fuel filler neck problem as well so we are working with the dealership to get it resolved. They have so far been willing to do whatever it takes to resolve the issues. Is there any hope I will come out of this with dry floors in the end? I am willing to clear the drain tubes whenever they need it, but I also want the procedure to actually accomplish something!!
