Fix leak in Sunroof? on 1992 Subaru Legacy

When it rains in my hometown the sunroof drips water slowly, into the car. I need to know what I need to do to fix it. It happens often. Do I replace the seal? OR? What?

Often times, sunroofs leak due to clogged drains. Look for the drain holes with the glass open. Make sure there is no debris. A shop would use compressed air to clear the holes. Further, accessing interior trim and/or headliner as necessary can follow the tubes down to exit the car and make sure they are clear as well. Conversely, you could have a leaking seal - sure, but usually it's the lack of draining capability.
