Water Leak from clogged sunroof drain(s)

So I've been searching the forums for a diagram/photos of the 2 rear sunroof drains in the WK2 with the panoramic roof. I know the front two but cannot see any rear drains. Does the panoramic roof option even allow for 4 drains?

Trying to solve a interior leak that manifests during heavy rain. The majority of the water drips down from the rear trim on the driver's side into the cargo area near the rear cargo window. I did have a small drip from the sunglasses holder this morning as well.

I read the TSB and will attempt a low PSI cleaning with a blow gun this weekend but I'd love a schematic or photos of the rear tubes.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

I had this happen. Dealer cleaned it out and the Chrysler Enhanced Customer Satisfaction covered the labor. It's a pain in the ass. The two rear drains are in there good. I think the tech said he had to pull the headliner down a bit to get to them. Hope it helps. Worst case scenario take it to the dealer.

Re: Water Leak from clogged sunroof drain(s)

The rear drain channels are located in the rear most corners of the pano-sunroof. If you would like, you can actually see these drain channel openings by taking a flash light (small/bright is best) and look toward the back of the vehicle from the front seats.

Because I've cleared the drain channels a hand full of times, what I do is take my air compressor with a blower device and attach a long hose on it and snake it back to the rear drain channels and blow them out. A diagram is not really needed, you can see these drain channels if you look very carefully.
