    Water dripping from dome light

    I know tis has been discussed to a degree. I found a post on here that explains how to check and repair tubes if needed. All my tubes seem to be draining properly, but at highway speeds we get drips of water from dome light when it's raining. Any suggestions other than not driving at highway speeds during rain storms, haha, I'm sure I beat someone to their punch line.

    How is the front windscreen seal?

    Also, after a rain do you hear gurgling up there? Mine had a kink in one tube that did not stop but slowed drainage. It also channeled some water to the key lock antenna because of the kink.

    I don't hear any gurgling, all the seals seem fine, one thing I haven't checked is the glass alignment, I'll do some searching on how to check that. It seems if the glass was leaking around the edges that there would be more water? The dripping is so slight I wouldn't even bother with it, but I'm afraid of water building up in the headliner or somewhere where it could do harm.

    It was the drip at higher speed that is odd. I had mine just starting out after sitting in the rain, and it was sunroof drain related. The seals are great, but keep the drains clear. I could hear it before it dripped. Like I said before, if it is coming out there, it is also likely going places that will be even more annoying later, so it is worth playing with a hose on a sunny day. That is what the dealer would do, your water is cheaper.
