Panoramic roof - wet inside

Post by senwar » Sun Oct 28, 2018 1:39 pm

Have just opened my roof to see quite a bit of water on the top of the fly screen and across the front portion of the roof. The fly screen is actually soaked to touch.

I’m presuming this isn’t right? I’ve had issues with condensation recently and also a strange vibration noise but have been unable to figure out the actual source but I suspected a problem seal - could this be the case?

Had this in yesterday (was in for another issue). Anyway I was told this is the design as the fly screen sits in a well. I’m not sure this is right because it’s drenched still and when you open the roof water spits out at you.

Can anyone confirm if their screen is wet?

My fly screen is as dry as a bone.

Have a look at your sunroof seal on the roof above each door.
On my passenger side(U.K.) the seal/sunroof glass sits 5mm proud
of the roofline for 3inches.
Drivers side is nearly flush.

My xc40 is in the shop with water in passenger floorboard . They did a water test and confirmed leak from water pillar. Service writer said they want to remove a pillars and they want to remove headliner. I think this is a big deal.
