yeah your sunroof drain tubes are probably just full.

they drain into your rear wheel well, if you pull back the plastic covering (carefully!!) you should see the tube. Mine was all clogged with rust/road debris. So i took out the rubber stopper and ran some degreaser through there. I still have some leaks, but not near as bad!

i thought the rear sunroof drain tubes drained at the rear of the car, the exits are in the frame, seen if you remove the rear bumper cover ??

i dunno about that. I sprayed the purple degreaser through the drain tubes and it came out the back of the wheel well... i guess it was on the rear bumper side. but i definately didnt have the bumper off.

:lol:

He's not kidding.

unbolt light housing.
take off the seal.
let dry.
add silicon goo.
replace.
... and don't forget to use an 8mm socket instead of the 7mm Mark used on his which made the job a tad bit harder than it should've been. :wink:

Will this keep the rear tail lights from getting water in them? Can you order new seals or find them anywhere?
Honda sells them for too much money but I was rushed and got it there. You can take off the old ones, and just tack one of them down and make a new one. I don't like the sloppy goo treatment especially if you have to take it off again.

So what plastic covering are we talking about?

I didn't wanna spend the money to get new ones from Honda for my old Integra, so I just picked up some thin foam weatherstripping at the hardware store. It has adhesive on one side, and you can just bend it around corners to the shape of the original seal/gasket. I definitely didn't want to deal with the mess of silicone, and these actually seal quite well...the foam is a tad thicker than the stock gaskets if you find the right kind, so I think you might actually get a tighter seal...plus it's like 3 dollars.

I used some silicone sealant around the seams of the hatch hinges (top, up by the squirter there) and that stopped a bit of the leaking I was having w/mine down through where the hatch struts are.
