I have water in the passenger side rear column just above the seatbelt.
checked out the sunroof and sure enough there is a crack (slit) in it (back side near middle).
I assumed this was the problem but come to find out you can not order the sunroof seal for this model.
You can for other year Altima models but not 10-12. Your only option is to order and ENTIRE NEW SUNROOF.
Even after market that is well over $500 and Nissan wants a lot more than that.

Really?

Anyone out there have a solution? For now, I painted FlexSeal onto the offending crack and wonder if it will work.

Even the Nissan parts guy was a bit baffled by this.

Drains unplugged

I cleaned out the drains. Good thing. Side that was allowing water in was completely plugged. And the other side leaked out from under that plastic connector that attaches to the hose. The gasket goop was shot. it was tricky to unclip and remove but once out it cleaned up fine and once reattached worked great.

Unfortunately, the sunroof still leaks. Hopefully, slow enough the drains will handle it.
Any suggestions on a seal?

I refuse to accept that a replacement glass is the only option. That is ridiculous.
