Your Auto Column - Presented by Kevin and Sue Anne Donohoe

Having a leaking sunroof in your vehicle is enough of a nuisance to pose a safty hazard. This kind of problem should be addressed right away. In most cases, a clogged sunroof drain is directly responsible for the steady stream of water entering the cabin. If the hose that runs from the sunroof's drainage trough down through the windshield pillars is plugged or kinked, water will overflow the trough. In some cases, the auto technician can remove a blockage with a blast of compressed air. If not, running a "snake" down the hose may dislodge any problematic matter. If the track is lost at the upper end of the original hose, replacement may involve removing the headliner.

If you have any issue with your vehicle, whether a leaky sunroof or engine problems, we want to help! We have the knowledge and skills to handle all your automotive needs. At the first sign of an automobile problem, it is a good idea to have it looked at by a professional. Call us at (831) 357-9571 or click here to make an appointment. We are located at the corner of Figueroa and Franklin, just west of Jack's Park in Downtown Monterey.

P.S. If a sunroof becomes stuck during operation, do not try to fix the problem yourself. You may only make a bad situation worse.
