Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

I bought a 2005 Wk 2 months ago and it leaked down the A pillars. There's plenty of threads about pinched hoses and not enough window sealant.

I unclogged them once with weed wacker line. They worked okay and it didn't leak for a while. When I cleaned it the first time I knocked lose a bunch of compost looking twigs and dirt from where the water was dripping.

We are having moderate to heavy rain in NY and water is leaking everywhere. I opened the sunroof and saw the drip tray was completely full. It's really embarrassing driving with this water dripping after every turn.

Can someone explain to me where the drains vent to? I would like to make sure this area is free of debris and blow air up towards the roof rather than down into this hidden area.

Re: Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

If they are anything like the 05 Libbys, they drain under the front doors, right where the front door seam meets the front fender, underneath the truck. I haven't had to clean out the WK or the WJ, but I did clean the lines on a Libby for a friend, and that's where they led.

There's a ton of plastic trim in the way so I figured I'd ask before I start yanking those rivets off

Re: Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

I'm also interested in this.

so when you cleared the drains with the weed whacker line, you didn't see where the ends of the lines came out?

Re: Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

There's a few plastic pieces in the way to see if the weed wacker line goes through.
I unclogged them and it got clogged again.
The first time there was a ton of junk falling out when shaking it

There were a few of these in the drip tray as well

Re: Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

It's a seed that fits perfectly down the tray vent but not enough to make it out.
Thanks for the pics of the drip lines but I want to see the lower half. I'll rip the plastic rivets out and report back.

Re: Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

my guess is you have to be parking/driving somewhere with your sunroof open for that crap to make it down the drain tube? I'm almost curious enough to pull the a pillar on the passenger side and see where the tube exits!

Yep. Park under a tree and this happens

Re: Sunroof drains - Where do they drain under?

thanks for finding the drain. its been suggested in another thread that it would be good to blow some compressed air through it and clear it.
