- Sunroof Water Leak - I was searching for possible solutions that owners of Jeep Patriots with leaky sunroofs could possibly do on their own or with suitable help and came across this forum post. I know it specifies a 2008 Patriot but I believe it would pertain to almost any of them with the same issue. Hope this helps at least a few people :)

Roof leaks and drips/pours/gushes torrents of water through the front dome light area. It has destroyed the stereo by drenching it in water. It doesn't matter whether there has been a light sprinkle or a summer monsoon downpour, if it rains, it's 100% guaranteed to leak into the car. I used to keep a beach towel on the dash but would still have standing water in the cup holders and other areas on the center console. After a recent heavy rain, I found the car had "gallons" of water standing in the passenger foot well. I used a shop vac to remove the water and estimate that it had almost 3 gallons that had leaked into the car.
For a fix, I carefully taped a channel off around the sunroof seal and used a heavy spray of FlexSeal to seal off the area. This did NOTHING! My lead must be coming from somewhere other than the sunroof. I'm thinking I'll need to remove the roof rack rails and seal up those areas and seal around the rear top brake light. I don't have any water coming in through the rear dome light.
Everything seems to be up front. I've emptied the sunroof drains numerous times using a plastic tubing (used to connect a refrigerator to water for the icemaker). This worked very well and I've fished it through both drains until I heard the tubing inside the front wheel well guards. I know 100% that this is NOT a problem with the drains being clogged. It's coming in somewhere and pouring onto the headliner. I've watched numerous DIY videos and I don't know that any of them actually know what the problem is.
