Default Sunroof water leak?

I went to vacuum out my car today and found out that the carpet behind the drivers seat was soaked, we have gotten a lot of rain lately and I have a feeling it is the sunroof drainage system being clogged.

It'* only wet behind the drivers seat and the very corner of the backseat closest to the outer seatbelt.

I need a new sunroof and I know that my sunroof has had leaking issues in the past, getting the corner of the headliner wet, if I don't put a block under the corner it wont be in the right position and the water would leak in. But after that happening one time the drainage system was doing its job because it hasn't gotten wet there since......

And I checked my trunk and it is completely dry...


So could the drainage system simply be blocked with mud or something?

And it drains somewhere in the back wheel wells right?

There'* two drains up front and two in the rear. Pull the headliner out and check to see that the drain tubing is still connected to the sun roof. If they are, then they might be blocked. Sometimes you can snake a thin stiff wires down the tubes and unblock them.

That might be the drains, but also check the rear wheel wells. If that rusts threw that'* the same area that will get wet
