I can't give you a pic since the seal is hidden under the plastic pieces a the bottom of the windshield. If you remove the plastic cowl, it will likely damage the seal since it is just a foam rope seal. It is #7 in the link below.
Open the sunroof, look for holes in the channel. Jam a clothes hanger or wire into the holes as far as you can. Then pour water into the channel to verify it will drain. Look under the car to verify water drains to the ground. Usually works.
The sunroof seal is merely a dust cover, it doesn't seal out water. Water penetrates and fills the channel then drains down to the ground. This water flow brings dirt with it and the dirt clogs the drain openings. Usually a punch from a wire will break it up easily opening the drain fully.
Looking under the car won’t tell you anything. You need to remove the glovebox and side kick plate, then look inside while someone pours water on the windshield and then the sunroof. The cowl seals doesn’t drain anything, it just stops water from getting inside the car.
Hey gang- Yesterday we had heavy, steady rain here. Not wind driven and certainly not exceptional, but heavy for 5 or 6 hours. This morning, I got in my 2011 FX35 with only 30,000 miles and got two very bad surprises. First, the battery was dead and the car wouldn't turn over. Second...
I had same Problem. Mine was the Sunroof drains were clolged. Don't shove anything hard into the drain plugs of the Sunroof, as you may disconnect the hose drain that is attached to the Sunroof, then you will have a bigger leak and have to take off the sun visor and those handles above the driver's side and passenger side so you can reattach the sun roof drain hose. So do not use force when using a hangar, You can use something softer and flexible like the oil dip stick.
Open the Sunroof top. Stand up facing the front of your vehicle. To the left and right of the Sunroof channel, they are two tiny holes. If you don't see the holes, they are most likely blocked, try celaing out the corners of the Sunroof track with some wet bounty's, then find the holes with fingers or something like a pencil. After You shove a flexible object down the holes nice and easy, pour some water and vinegar 25% vinegar 75% water down the drains. If it's unclogging the water and vinegar will channel down to the bottom of the car where the fender and door meet under the car and or you will smell it when it comes down the drain/s Do this every year, wether you think you need it or not, trust me, you will save yourself a headache of a soaked, stinky, smelly mildew FX /
You just reminded me. I have to clean out my sunroof drains ?
Let me know how it goes. Hope this helps you out some.
I am the very proud owner of a FX30 2010.
My front and back washers are not working (no water is coming out). You cannot hear the pump trying to work so I am guessing the nozzles are not blocked.
The washer for the headlights is working though.
I have tried looking for a fuse for...
Someone smashed the hatch window on my girlfriends 2008 Infiniti FX35. We got a quote for the rear window being replaced of $1900.00CAD, so I decided to look for a parts car. Sure enough, found a hatch that had the same color code as hers however, it was from a 2004. The 2004's apparently have...
I have a 2007 Infiniti FX35 with a broken center console latch. My top console will not stay shut. Has anyone else experienced this and what was your solution to keep it shut. I don't want to pay 200.00 dealer part or 150.00 salvage yard price. I cannot locate the broken piece or I would...
