Truck Trend Garage: 2008 Chevrolet Pickup Water in the Interior
WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN?
Clogged drain tubes can often be cleared with compressed air, as long are you're careful to use low pressure and avoid blowing the tube off the channel connecting port. Disconnected tubes can usually be reinstalled by partially lowering the headliner enough to gain access to the connection. Kinked tubes can be more involved, and require interior trim panel removal to trace and repair. If the sunroof does not appear to be the source of the leak, partially lower the headliner and have someone hose down the top of the truck while inspecting the interior of the roof for an entry point.
