So it'* a sunroof drain that is clogged or something or that and a rubber gasket torn. I hear that you can get a gasket from GM. No idea on part number though.

Yes it either came unattached or the gasket is no good .I have the end of the drain hose,it is not plugged but I dont know how to get to the gasket where it hooks up to.I took apart plastic on windshield where wiper arm goes, not there,the hose went in a hole at the very corner of the dash that joins the windshield.

Ok the plot thickens.I found all my problems,took apart toomuch stuff but ,at least I found the drainage end.Well I am stuck with trying to reconnect sunroof drainage hose between corner of dash , thru side quarter panel frame out the wheel well.So any help threading thru a 1/2 inch hole blindly out to the dash would be super fantastic.thank you

I'd use mechanics wire to thread thru the proposed route, wrap it around the end of the hose and duct tape it, and use it as a pull wire to pull the hose into place.
Good luck!

Sorry I've been tied up last few days.
According to the manual that white hose should be long enough to poke thru the floor board?
Tape it onto the end of your wire and have someone feed it down while you pull on the other end of the wire to fish it thru.
You could remove the park brake and lower panel for better access, there are only 3 nuts (10mm?) to remove the braket and pedal. Leave the brake cable on and set to the side.
