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.

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. :thumbsup:

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?

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

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.

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!

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.

posted only pic in manual.

here is text. no help.

REMOVAL


FRONT HOSES





1. Remove headliner (Refer to 23 - BODY/INTERIOR/HEADLINER - REMOVAL).
2. Disconnect the drain hose from the sunroof housing (1).
3. Separate the lower tube from the grommet in the body.
4. Drain any liquid from hose connection, if necessary.
5. Release the clips and remove the tube.

REAR HOUSING HOSE





1. Remove headliner (Refer to 23 - BODY/INTERIOR/HEADLINER - REMOVAL).
2. Disconnect the drain hose from the sunroof housing (2).
3. Drain any liquid from hose connection, if necessary.
4. Release the push pin fasteners and separate the lower tube from the grommet in the body.

it sounds like they drain thru the body out the bottom somewhere.......

I've got that...works very well. Just BE GENTLE! I've read about people that have used tht method with great results, and others that blew out connections or blew the line itself. I would regulate the pressure down real low, and work your way up. Kinda like the the folks on the Jersey Shore fist pump.

Heres an up close pic.

I need to get a better air nozzle to get in there.
do both lines drain at this same spot?

One on each side.
ahh, ok. So there is 1 set of 2 drain hoses on each side of the jeep. Each set merges to the underside of the vehicle, 1 set on merges on the drivers side, 1 set merges to the passenger side.

thanks!
