Ive googled and searched but all I get is results on rigging the drain tubes and that's not what I need. My jeep has two holes in the seal and I have a new one ready to replace as soon as I find out how ha

The one fixed to the glass? I think I remember looking at that and thinking ill probably have to get new glass when that goes. Id look again but I'm not going outside in the cold for that right now.

fill the holes with clear silicone. It seems to me that the rubber seal is attached to a metal frame.

I'm thinking of replacing the seal but can't find out how. Does anyone know? Also, has anyone just sealed the sunroof with silicon and disabled the button?

@Beeks I sealed mine with Gorilla tape because I got tired of the leaks from the stopped up drain tubes.. It works great and lasts a long time. I still have the tape that I put on 3 years ago. I didn't disable the button though. I don't see why you would need to unless you let other people drive it. I don't know if you can even get the seals any more, but sealing it with whatever you want to use would be the easiest thing to do.

Thanks for the feedback. The vehicle just passed onto my teenage son (from my wife) and teens tend to remember things for at least a few minutes. I'll consider the tape method or silicon.

@Beeks That is true about teens. In that case it might be a good idea to disable the button.

@Beeks; I'd give one of the Flex-Seal products a try.

Sorry i havent been on here in a while, i bought and installed the OEM seal on mine. You will need to remove the glass, which is just a couple screws, but its pretty self explanatory, I tried getting it in without removing the glass, but finally gave up and pulled it. The seal itself was $90, and just pushes into the groove in the glass. But i tapped it with a mallet to be sure. The most important thing is the final cut to get the exact length, you need tin snips, or strong sharp side cutters. The seal has an overmolded metal core , and has more than enough length to wrap around. Its been leak free for a year now, or at least, if it leaks, the drains can handle it. Thats how i noticed, when my drains were clogged.

I temporarily sealed mine with black RTV after doing both of the drains, just too much rain here in FL. I bought a new Rockauto seal and am waiting for it to cool down before replacing it. I read somewhere that it's the same as the Grand Cherokee which means dropping the headliner. If anybody knows better please chime in, I haven't done a headliner since my SJ.
