Sunroof drainage

Postby p3man451 » Fri May 26, 2017 12:05 pm

Hi all. Can anyone tell me where the sunroof front rubber drain tubes exit the car. I've tried a " mole" using stiff cable but suspect it stopping at a blockage. How easy is it to replace ? - I assume it goes down the A posts - no sign of it in that area underneath car. Thanks Alan p3man 451

Under the front wings. There should be two pipes exiting there on each side, one from the front of the roof and one from the windscreen surround.

Thanks Stewart, There is no sign of these pipes . I need help as to their location, roughly. There's a lot of underseal on undersides of both wings. If you could point me in the rough area, I'd be most grateful. Do you know if rear and front windscreen seals are available from anyone? Thanks for your time . Alan p3man451

I'll get a look at the car and take some photos, maybe tomorrow as the car is not at home. Windscreen seals were available from Mike Couldry and I suspect that Mike Evans may have dealt in the too, I would try them first.

Sorry for the delay, life got too busy to get to the barn where the car is. The pipes appear in the second 'bay' back between the sills directly underneath the A post area. The photos show my pipes, which are not original (plastic garden hose) but follow the route of the original rubber.
