jtl090179@sbcglobal.net is wrong there is drainage tubes in every car equipped with a sunroof.I check them like this:1. Open sun roof.2. With a Jug or big cup of water go to each corner of the sun roof from out side and pore the water down each drain individually. Usually has 4 drains, one on each corner. 3. If your getting 1 or more drains backing up use compressed air to blow them out. Be careful if its a tight clog you might blow the drain off the sunroof assembly, then you will have to remove your headliner and interior panels to put it back on. If you don't have access to compressed air use a firm but flexible wire, I like to use the inner cable from bicycle brake cable.4. Once you cleaned them out check the drains for smooth flow again.To drop your headliner you have to remove the sun visors, oh sh!t handles, interior lights, rear view mirror (if its connected to your roof), A,B and C pillar trims must be removed (upper seat belt hinges have to be unbolted to remove the B-pillar trim, you might have to remove more interior trim to remove the C-pillar trims also), remove the rubber strip that goes around the opening of the sunroof hole ( it holds the liner up with the sunroof assembly), now remove the screws that hold the liner up.Hope this helps.
