The sunroof has started to allow drips of water in, I don't want to seal it off if I can help it, can you still get replacement sunroof seals? I would like to keep the sunroof, but if I can't get any new seal looks like filling it in.:(
 
phone your local nissan dealership and ask the part's department, im sure they will order you one , that's if they have'nt already got one in stock.

the foamy porous seal around the sunroof glass doesn't actually seal out water, it mainly keeps out wind n debris. water can seep through the material, down into the drainage trays n down the sunroof drains.
its most likely the sunroof drain pipe blocked with debris and the water overflows over the sunroof tray frame n down through the roof lining.

Thanks for the reply, did'nt notice any drain holes in the frame when i removed the glass, where would they be situated?

Don't know, only had the car 6 months, it looks like it's factory fitted, will strip it down later this afternoon ''weather permitting working outside on the road'' at the moment it's taped up, got caught in a heavy shower yesterday.

A fine day today weatherwise,did some serious work on the sunroof. Found the word ''Webasto'' on the mechanism so i'm thinking this was fitted sometime after purchase, don't know when, so have given up hope to save it. Have replaced the glass on a thick seal of silicone, so it's now permanently fixed. Thanks for the info pollyp, a big help.

My old 2000 K11 had a sun roof that when it was shut propally had loud wind noise and let water drip in, i found just turning the handle slightly stopped both these issues..

the drains are at the back corners of the sunroof rails and the hoses go down into the rear quarters.
