Default nother leak (with pics)

any suggestions...

one of the 5 leaks is coming from under the car computer in the upper part of the passenger side dash. there is no way i can take all this out, and i cant see where water is getting in from either side. does anyone know of any possible locations through the firewall/wires where it could get in? or maybe a clogged drain hole nearby. i can get you a picture in the morning if you need an idea of the space or lack thereof im working with

thanks

That COULD be the drain for your sunroof. Have you checked them? Pull the pillar trim on both A pillars, and make sure they're hooked up. Then disconnect them, and run a wire down through the tubes, then from the sunroof into the pillar. If the tube is disconnected, water will run down the inside of the A-pillar to the back side of the dash.

i taped a little hose unto my garden hose and stuck it directly into both of the front sunroof drain holes, they both worked properly and drained in front of the doors into the ground effects

the leak happens when water is sprayed unto the windshield, it goes down unto the firewall, and i cant see where it goes after that.

i also took that mini hose and put it on the rear sunroof drains, WOW, huge leaks on both sides, i wouldnt be surprised if both of them are unhooked, water was pouring in, drippin from the sides of the headliner. and tips on getting the headliner out without breaking anything?
