Water leak in forester XT from Roof

Recommended Posts

Hi all. 
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. My pride and joy IMMACULATE xt has suddenly developed a big water leak from the roof? I have no sunroof so I can only assume the factory roof bars???? I’ve never had a drop of water in previously and now have water marks on both sides of the vehicle and water running out from by the sun glasses holder. I’ve covered it over for now is there any drain hoses I need to check or is this something more serious? Thanks all

sounds very much like roof bar seals gone.
The good news is the roof linings are pretty easy remove with bit of finesse and the bars can be removed and resealed if needed and with headlining out should be easy test and find the source of water entry ..
If head lining ruined probably not too hard find a donor lining given bit of time and get it back to immaculate .
