water anyone?

well i jumped in my truck to get some lunch and when i got in i noticed some water on my grab handle on the drivers pillar ( its raining) so i looked and thought it just run in when i opened the door but sure enough it was running out where the handle meets the pillar. so i road to the store and did not see much after i wiped it but when i got back in the truck to come home it was leaking again now where the headliner meets the pillar plastic dripping on my knee wtf!!! i called the dealer right away and got a first thing call in the morning anybody seen this on there 09' or 08' could it be the sunroof pan clogged and overflowing it seems to come in when i backed up. a new truck with leaks already great!

Looking at mine yesterday, it seems like they are designed to handle a minimal amount of leaking around the seal. Are they supposed to leak at all? Not sure of that one. There is a channel all the way around that catches water and sends it out of holes at the corners. I'd check to see how clean those holes are and on a dry day, maybe even test them with a cup of water to see if they're draining properly. I could hear mine gurgle as I first moved the truck after a rain all night.

It also looks like the spot welds in the sheet metal of the roof, that the sunroof seals against, cause dents/curves along that line, preventing a perfect seal.

Well I can't speak for the Ford truck but I had the same problem with our g8 gxp and it was a hose that drains the sun roof channel came unhooked. Maybe the same thing?

well i was at the dealer this morning and after 2 hours they call my name and hand me a invoice so i read it it stated no leaks found sorry that was not good enough i know it was leaking so i *****ed and got with the lead tech. that checked it. he said he hosed the hell out of it and saw nothing then checked the rain gutter/drain hoses all seem fine. the funny thing is it did not leak this morning so he said if i see water again he will need the truck for the day to drop the headliner. he said it could be leaking anywhere and running to that point he is supposed to check with ford for any known leak issues and gave me his phone# if i see a leak call him. i am betting its that damn sunroof i dont even use!!! i guess we will see what happens no water tonight either.

Reviving this thread! Its been raining today and i noticed water dripping from my overhead light it drips right in my cupholder this is the second time i seen this wondering if its the sunroof drains clogged or a roof light maybe leaking? The first time the dealer blew the drain out with air that was about a year ago now water again! Anyone having this issue?
