Question #1 - Are you still under warranty? If so, let Ford figure it out, and they would also have to replace the water damaged pieces.



I haven't spent a lot of time crawling around in my sunroof, because I've never had any problems with it, but usually the sunroof opening has a couple of little holes in the rear of the opening which are actually drains for any water that gets down in the track area. Maybe the holes, or the tubes that drain down from the holes, are clogged up.

Seems like the sunroof and the roof rack are about the only two places you'd think that water could get in up that high.



Good luck getting it all figured out quickly and cheaply!! Let us know what happens.
