95 Honda Accord EX sunroof leak

I reside in the Pacific NW and have a 95 Honda Accord EX that I believe has a moonroof/sunroof leak. During the recents down pours the back seat bottom and the drivers front and back floor were soaked. I would like to know if anyone has had a similiar problem. Thanks

The floor??

Caking, check your sunroof/moonroof's weatherproofing (the black rubber around it). See if there are any holes or tears in it that you can see. This can cause a leak. I've had this happen on my hatchback.

My aunt had a 94 EX and she had the same problem, I checked out the seals and they were dry rotting (because of the Florida climate) and I replaced her seals and it stopped it right then

My back seat is held in by locks, and the rubber gaskets for them are basically going thru the car so they might be worn...as far as the spare thing goes i duno

Your weatherproofing on your trunk is probably shot. You might want to check it for tears, etc.

Godlaus, I suggest you remove that fan club invitation from your sig, as it doesn't do CF any favours and certainly doesn't do your reputation much good! As much as newyorker annoys us some times, lets not start hatred through sigs please! If you fail to remove it, I will

As for the question in hand. It's quite possible the water got in through the floor, depending on it's condition obviously. and spare tyre compartments usually have a rubber plug in them to drain any wter that gets in....if that's relevent lol
