    Are you for sure it's sunroof tube? There's two possibilities. Is the water on the floor or around head liner grab handle? Here's first

    Retainer For Door Secondary Seal - Water Leak Due To Voids In Baked-On Adhesive
    May experience a water leak that appears to be coming from: the headliner
    above the front and/or rear door, the A-Pillar interior trim panel and/or grab handle, the
    grab handle above the rear door. May experience a wet floor carpet where
    the A-Pillar, B-Pillar, or C-Pillar mate to the vehicle floor panel.
    This condition may be caused by voids in the baked-on body adhesive between the vehicle
    body and the metal retainer used to support the door secondary seal. The retainer runs
    from the A-Pillar to the C-Pillar.
    DIAGNOSIS:
    If water testing has isolated the source of the water leak to the door secondary seal
    retainer, then perform the Repair Procedure.
    REPAIR PROCEDURE:
    1. Open both doors on the side of the vehicle where the water leak is present.
    2. Remove the door secondary seal fully from its metal retainer.
    3. Make certain that the metal retainer and local body area is clean and dry.
    4. Carefully apply a small bead of Silicone Windshield & Glass Sealer to retainer-to-body
    joints (above and below retainer) and to front of “T”-section(Fig. 1).
    5. **Tighten the retainer fasteners to 1.1 N•m (10 in. lbs.)**
    NOTE: Do not remove the door secondary seal metal retainer from the vehicle. Do
    not remove old “baked-on” adhesive. Thumb new sealer over old adhesive.
    Make certain air bubble voids and missing adhesive voids are covered over.
    6. Allow the silicone sealer to air dry.
    7. Install the door secondary seal.
    8. Close doors.



    Fig. 1 SECONDARY SEAL RETAINER
    1 - ROOF PANEL ABOVE SIDE DOORS - LEFT SIDE (TYPICAL)
    2 - BAKED-ON ADHESIVE - AIR BUBBLE VOIDS IN ADHESIVE
    3 - DOOR SECONDARY SEAL METAL RETAINER - DO NOT REMOVE
    4 - BAKED-ON ADHESIVE - VOIDS OR SKIPS IN ADHESIVE

    Second possibility

    Analysis has found the following possible causes for water leakage at these locations:
    1. A pinched or collapsed front sunroof drain tube (left or right side) between the
    headliner and metal roof panel at the outboard sun visor attachment. The pinched front
    drain tube(s) may cause water to backup in the tube and overflow the sunroof water
    trough.
    2. A body sealer void at top of A-pillar where the front edge of the roof panel is joined to
    the A-pillar (body side aperture). A sufficient quantity of the body sealer may not have
    been applied to the joint.
    3. A windshield sealer void at the top of the A-pillar. The front edge of the roof panel
    causes a “step” in the joint with the A-pillar that if severe enough the windshield sealer
    may not be able to fully compensate for.
    4. A restricted rear sunroof drain tube (left or right side) near the exit end of the drain
    tube. The rear sunroof drain tube is routed down along the C-pillar. The end of the
    tube(s) may turn back on itself during installation at the bottom of the C-pillar. Sound
    deadening foam is applied to the C-pillar cavity once the drain tube is installed. The
    sound deadener may close off the end of the drain tube.

    My '06 WK had exactly the same symptoms and they found one of the drains was terminated inside the cab. It was fixed at the dealer in Clarkesville, GA for $106.00 about 5 months ago. My wife took it in for the repair so I did not get to see the repair and can't helop any more than the above. good luck. KIX
