Default My dodge has sprung a leak!

I believe the leak is coming from the sunroof. I have read other posts talking about drainage tubes/holes. The problem that I am having is I can't find these on my truck to check if they are clogged. I have a 2006 Dedge Ram 1500 Megacab. Help soon! It is raining

Those tubes are inside the truck, you will have to drop the headliner. There should be 2 ports( one each side ) that the tubes hook to and run over to the side/rear of the body and on most cars through the floor somewhere to drain outside. Not sure if the routing has been changed over the years but the basic location of the hoses should connect to the rear corners of the sunroof. Sometimes the little nipples crack and leak as well but if removing the inner sunroof frame doesnt esxpose it then you will need to drop the headliner. hope this helps a bit.

The sunroof drain holes are located at the forward corners of the sunroof drain channel. If they are plugged water will spill over the channel into the head liner eventually making its way down through the grab handle fasteners dripping onto the floor. If that is the case, one or both tubes are plugged. Verify by opening the sunroof and see if it is overflowing the drain channel. If it is plugged drop the forward portion of the headliner, secure the corrogated draintube on the channel spigot with a pair of needlenose pliers then blowout with air pressure. Should fix the blockage. Good luck
