Default 2001 Honda Accord Moonroof leaks

Is it true that it is ok for some rain water to come through the moonroof
while it is closed. The honda dealer is telling me that it is ok and the
is what the drainage holes are for.

Into the passenger compartment? No! Either the seals are shot or the drains
are plugged up allowing the water to find an alternate path. If I remember
correctly, the moonroof drains back to the rear bumber area, just above the
body/bumper line.

Get a piece of hose and try blowing air through all the drains. Then try
water. Use your mouth, not a high-pressure hose. You'll see which is
blocked. Try a Google Groups search for better answers . . .

The water does not come into the compartment, the water does go down the
drain valves, but is it normal for water to be coming in at all. I
thought the drain valves were precautionary.
Thanks

I just bought a 2001 accord with moon roof.I noticed after a rain the back
seat floor(driver's side)is wet in an area about 6 inches by 2 inches
wide.There is no wet area around it though...seems odd.
Could that be the moon roof leaking?
thx

You mean inside the car? If so, no. Not normal at all.

However, if you mean inside the "groove" that surrounds the
moonroof, then it is ok.

I just went and checked on my RSX (not a civic, but..) and it
rained all night here. There was no water in the groove. However,
I did notice drainage holes. Hence, I think that these are in
case any water comes in there.

Cheers

You should see some water stains, on the roof liner around the opening.

You mean water comes through the rubber seal around the hatch? That's
perfectly normal. It is not supposed to be watertight. This water will
be collected by pans under the hatch and then directed to drainage tubes
hidden in the pillars. These pans are actually the main reason why
moonroofs take up so much headroom.

I had the exact same symptoms on a new 2001 Accord.
Dealer fixed it under warranty. Said a drain hose was not attached.
