On my bonnie, I had a small leak in one of those front corrugated tubes, just before it exited the pillar cover area.

Glad you got your problem fixed

I never knew there was drainage for the sunroof... I guess it makes sense... just never gave it any thought. Good to know though.

If your drains are all working properly, you can leave your roof in vent in a downpour. No water will get in the car. I've done it on several occasions.

What do you do if the front corrugated tubing is broken? I had one rear rubber hose disconnected and one front tube broken and extrememly brittle. I need to do something about the front tube.

Hmmmm... That'* a good question. For my rears, I just used silicone to secure them in. But my front ones were in tact. If the whole thing is brittle, you run the risk of it breaking again even if you fix the broken area. I think I would run to the hardware store and buy some clear tubing the right diameter and replace the whole ting. Heck, I'd even consider doing both front lines cause dropping the headliner is such a pain in the rump.

wouldnt the dash and a lot of trim pieces also have to be removed?? if the drain is by the wheel, i cant even imagine what it all goes through. it would be nice if you coud put a strong wire down the tube, then tape it to the new tube, then pull out the old tube, assuming it stays together, then just pull the new one in place, sounds easy, but im sure its not

Trim pieces, yes. The A-pillar trim and kick panels. Attaching a wire or a string would be a great idea to aid in the routing of the new tube. I had a chance to explore the driver'* side when it was all apart and the tube on that side exits from an opening under the hood release. There is a thick piece of foam in the opening that I guess is for insulation. When this is removed, the tube can be seen exiting the vehicle.

I don't think it'* going to be an easy job... just the best bet for brittle lines.

I have seen on some signature files that people have installed reconditioned headliners. Where do you find such an animal? And how do you get it in and out of the car without creating a crease in it?
