My 2014 forester with 5000 miles has a large stain on the inside of the moon roof area and on the upholstery above the passenger side rear door. dealership says it is from the car wash I use??? It looks like windshield wiper fluid??? the care wash doesn't use a color in their soap. Any thoughts?
THE STAIN IS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE FORESTER. IT IS A BLUE STAIN
THAT LOOKS LIKE WINDOW WASHER FLUID? THE DEALERSHIP SERVICE
DEPARTMENT SAYS IT IS WATER FROM MY CAR WASH, OPERATOR OF THE CAR
WASH SAYS HIS SOAP IS WHITE. LOOKS LIKE A LEAK IN THE HOSE FEEDING
WASHER FLUID TO THE REAR WINDOW WIPER?
It does look like WW fluid. I'm not familiar with the 2014 forester, but is there a back hatch wiper and fluid spray nozzle? If so, the line will go through the roofline and could be leaking. I'd take the car back and ask to speak to the regional manager, or try another Subaru dealer in your area if your lucky to have more than one close enough.
Sorry this is almost a week old.. So, on my 03 & 04 foresters the drains are at the front corners (and possibly the rear corners but I just don't know) of the moon roof. Just open the moon roof and look on top of the car inside the usually hidden area. I don't know where the drain goes but I had one clog and leak all in the car during down pour rain. I used small 16-18g wire and shoved it down through the drains and fixed it. So you either have the leaking WWF or a clogged drain. ..car was soap is usually clear, right?
