My car leaked on the left side and next the right side so i think it's clogged.
I called the dealership it's a about 250.00 to take it apart and clean it.
Way too much.
OK i find these 2.
On another forum a guy said use a air pump to see it it clears and another a guitar string to auger it out.
So if anyone else has a problem hopefully they can fix it.
I'll try it tomorrow and let y'all know how it goes.
Good Luck to ALL!
#7 of 8 Leaking moonroof drains
Jan 28, 2010 (9:13 am)
Owned a new 2001 Avalon Limited and I bought my 2007 Limited new. All was fine with the 2007 until about 45000 miles. Noticed a bad smell in the car that got worse. Turned out the moonroof drains had become detached. By time problem was diagnosed there was mould smell in car bad enough that I could not drive it without the windows down. I was out of warranty due to mileage, but when I pushed Toyota, to their credit they did the right thing and replaced the carpet the pad and the soundproofing that is sprayed on the floor pan at the factory. After additional trips back to the dealer to kill the smell it finally was conquered, though this whole process took 8 months. My opinon is that the quality of American assembled Toyotas is inferior to when the Japanese assembled them. Sorry USA.

Thanks Tim93. Fixed the problem today. Couldn't really peal back the headliner very easily but I got my hand between the pillar liner and the opening in the headliner at the sunroof. Sure enough there was the hose, off the drain. However, it had a clip. Luckily it could be manipulated by hand and I squeezed it and put it back on the drain. I couldn't really see that there were drains on all 4 corners though, maybe just the front two. Guess Ill know if they start to leak also.
