United Kingdom 2006 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Tonga Green
Leaky Sunroof - Air gap -

Hi all,

I have a leaky sunroof, it doesn't seem to be sealing properly around the back. With it fully closed I can actually see the sky through a tiny gap. Also it sounds windy on motorway, so annoying.
I have tried the reset trick with holding the button down etc, but it made no difference.

Anyway, I have bought a new seal, LR023393 - but I have no idea how to fit it. Do I need to take the headliner off? I have search internet and YouTube and no luck.

Thanks, John 2006 Range Rover Sport 4.2 s/c with Arden bodykit

You local dealer will probably tell you it is a ”characteristic” of the car now that one person has raised it........... 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW.... my fun car to enjoy bashing and denting 20 years old and still giving loads of fun

You do not need to remove the headlining, the seal locates in a groove/recess in the actual sunroof panel which you will not see until you remove the old seal. Tilt the Sunroof panel and remove seal from rear of panel and part way down the sides, then open sunroof part way and remove rest of seal. To refit close and tilt panel, start in centre of panel on rear edge and work seal into locating groove, basically refit in just same way as removed old seal starting at rear working towards front. Make sure you refit the seal in the correct orientation, make a note which way round the old one is before removing it. You might also need something to push seal into the groove like some sort of plastic tool that will not damage the seal.
