I have cleaned my 98 navigator every weekend since i bought it 2 years ago, and have found it most annoying that when i spend hours cleaning every detail on the vehicle, including the windows, water drips forward from the roof drains and stains the windshield as soon as i brake for the first time. The only way i have found to stop this is to literally climb ontop and dry them with a rag or shirt. If you are trying to avoid the problem i face about the windshield, make sure you carry an extra roll of paper towels in the vehicle so just in case your as picky as i am, as soon as the water falls forward, you can get out and wipe up the streaks (or have your gf do it and tell her you cant help cause your driving).

Metered roof drains are installed on flat roof systems. Their primary purpose is to allow a small amount of water to drain through them, and allow for water to pool on a roof top. This pooling allows for the sewage treatment plants not to be overwhelmed by the rain water. The metered roof drains must be spaced 50 feet from the roof edge and 100 feet from another metered roof drain. Each metered roof drain has 4 weirs built into its body. By removing weirs you can control the amount of water that will drain. The more weirs removed the faster the roof will drain. The roof must be engineered to hold the weight of the pooling water. More information can be found on the web sites from the manufacturers of metered roof drains. Zurn, Mifab etc.

Yes. All sunroofs both factory and aftermarket have drains because it is impractical to totally seal a roof opening.

I finally found the drains in each corner of the sunroof. They were covered with dirt. You can't see the ones in the rear of the sunroof but you can feel them with a screwdrive with the roof in the tilt position. I used weed eater cable to clean them. I also found 2 drains for where the water running down the front window drains. The drains for this area were clogged right below the windshield. I am starting to believe that this was my problem area rather than the sunroof. All drains are now clear and I am waiting to see if all is well.

On the roof! I'm kidding ! If you have a carpet pull it up.The drains (usually six )are located at the low points and are just a plastic looking stopper.

Yes, there are 4 drains at each corner of the sunroof which sometimes get clogged.

You can use an AAV for each of these. This prevents having to cut the roof.

You can easily clean your gutters by yourself by climbing onto the roof and clearing out and debris from gutters and your drain. Afterwards, it is advisable to get some wire mesh material and attach it to the gutters to prevent more debris frow getting in them.

By taking the square footage and the actual pitch of the roof and using a chart that will give you a 10 year frequency (average rain fall) per hr. Also a major factor is if the roof surface is for weather protection only or promenade

You can tell if the roof vent pipe is clogged by watching for slow drains. If air is unable to help force water out of the system, the water will naturally want to remain in position.

If the spots are only thru the clear coat the entire roof should be carefully finesse sanded and then reapply clear coat as directed by manufacture.

The rake is the edge of the roof that is not the eave where water drains off. On this edge are the cut off ends of the roofing material as opposed to the bottom edge of the shingle, which is a factory cut. This edge does not exist if there is a hip, the inverse of a valley.
