    Was parked on an incline yesterday during some rain, front was higher than the rear. Got in and started driving homeand qhile going down a hill i had water pour in through the dome light/sunroof control switch. This is on a 2006 liberty, no roof rust, sunroof has been closed for a while with cold weather being here. Does anyone have any suggestions for a possible solution before i start buying parts or tearing the headliner apart?

    the drain lines may be clogged/broken.
    I believe there is one on each corner.
    Use compress air or a weed wacker line.

    i'd check if they're truly clogged by just pouring water on the corners.

    This. 9/10 times the drains are plugged.

    yea that is what it looks like, the next morning i opened the sunroof and looked around, no water leaking by the seal, i'll punch the drains asa. can that be done from the top by the sun roof or is any interior disassembly required in order to access the tubes for cleaning?

    From the top but the end of the front drains go out behind the front quarter panel so you could theoretically get to it.
    The rears I am not too sure.

    The drain tubes go along the A pillars for the front ones and the B or C pillars for the rears.

    Not easy to reach/see the rear drains, just a heads up.
