Default How to check for sunroof drains are plugged?

After a tremendous amount of rain the the DC area last week, I discoverd that my rear carpets were wet, the passenger side almost had a swimming pool! Anyway, upon checking it out, all the carpet in the footwells is wet, as well as under the rear seat. I found some water stain in the headliner near the rear of the rear doors too.

I strongly suspect that the sunroof seal has failed and/or the sunroof drains are plugged.

Where are the drains located on the underside of the car? How to unclog them?

Anyone have experience replacing the sunroof weather seal?

And what is a good source for replacement carpet/pad? gmpartsdirect was no help.

Thanks,

Jason.

Open your front door, and look forward into the crack between the fender and the frame. It'* at the bottom.

Remove your A-pillar trim and make sure the hoses are attached at the top. Run a wire through the tube and holes to make sure they're clear.

Door seal or rear window seal above the rear deck.

I replaced the carpet pad in my trunk with standard household carpet pad. It kills noise much better, and is cheaper than automotive pad. (not absorbent, either).
