How do you fix a slight leak coming from the sunroof on a 94 z24 cavalier do they have drain plugs?

check to make sure it is the sunroof for one, 2nd after your sure, replace the rubber seal, 40 bucks i think, the rubber gets old and the window wont set down onto it properly anymore, also if you have gallon of water in the back seat but roof isn't wet, its not the sunroof, its the front window leaking down the frame rails then into the back seat, my sunroof leaks barely, but made me think the gallons in back seat was it, it was not the source of the heavy leaks, anyhow, hope it helps ya...

How do you fix rattling noise from rear trunk on 05 infiniti g35?

A screw may be missing in the sunroof. This will cause a rattle when you hit bumps in the road that sounds as though it's coming from the trunk. You can check this by opening the sunroof and having someone hold on to it while you drive. If the sound stops, then that is your problem. To fix it, drop the headliner and put in a new screw.

Why is it when you look in a pond from shore objects are not what they appear to be?

I believe the objects are what they appear to be, but not where they appear to be. This is due to the bending (refraction) of light waves as they travel through the water. The light coming to your eyes from the objects must pass through water, and then transition to air. The angle at which the light hits the boundary between the air and water determines how much the beam is bent. If you look straight down at an object in the water, it will appear to be in the correct place and orientation, but any other angle change the light, and therefore distorts the image.
