Take it back to who installed it. Don't mean to diminish your problem, but what else is there to do?

There are 2 bolts (front and back) on each side of the sun roof, you can loosen them and adjust your sunroof so it sits flush with the roof. Wife and I were going through the car wash the other day and she noticed a little bit of water was getting through on the drivers side corner and when the air dryer hit it you could actually see the sun roof lift a little bit and it got pretty loud. Did a little research on this and found that adjusting the rear bolts had fixed it for others that had the same issue. Once I go through the car wash again I'll post results here.

Those bolts are under the accordion rubber flaps, just lift them up and you'll see them.
Loosen them slightly, push up the corner til it's flush & retighten.

I adjusted mine last week and it's still leaking, checked the sunroof again and it was sitting below the roofline so I adjusted it again so we'll see what happens. Just out of curiosity has anyone ever changed the seal that goes around the sunroof glass?

Went through the car wash after making another adjustment and it looks like that fixed it, no water leaking into the rear corners and it doesn't lift up when the air dryer hits it, at least not like it use too. Hopefully that issue is resolved.

No reply from the OP if his problem has been fixed, new guy with 1 post.

Well it looks like I'm going to have to replace the seal on my sun roof, after making the last adjustment to it and going through the car wash it was still leaking. This has been become a real pia to deal with and the only solution I can find is the seal since it only leaks on the back corners. Anyone ever change a sun roof seal, everything I've read on changing one it seems to be a pretty basic job.

Sorry to hear about you water leak. Mine is different. I am having air leak problems when driving above 50 MPH. You guys say you adjusted the roof. How do you do that?

There are 4 bolts, 2 on each side of the sun roof, there are accordion style covers that you can simply pull off from the top of the rail piece to expose the bolts. If your sun roof is sitting to high you can loosen the bolts and push it down until it's flush, vice versa if it's sitting to low. I've adjusted mine 4-5 times and it still leaks so I'm replacing the seal as that's the only thing that can stop the leak.

Replaced the seal on my sun roof and it looks like that solved the leaking problem, a couple more run through the car wash will tell me if it's fixed permanently.
