Default Sun Roof Problems

Hello all, I've recently been getting water coming in through the sun visor fittings and the cabin lights in the centre of the headliner. Coupled with that has been that the sunroof works intermittently. Sometimes opening normally, most of the time sticking half way or needing repeated button presses to move it a few mm. Eventually, it'll stop moving completely stuck half way and I need to close it. Can anyone offer any support please ?

I'd start by clearing all four sunroof drains. Several threads here on how to do it, some with pics. It' s more common that the floorboard fills with water, but I think a few have reported leaks from overhead due to clogged drains. Do you park it outside much? Any trees around? This would accelerate drain clogging but is not necessary to have the occurrence.

Thank you, yes its sat under a tree daily 🙄 I'll figure out how to flush the drainage pipes as a start. Thanks for your help.
