just use a small razor blade and be careful and you should not have to disconnect anything, I didn't. If you are talking about the connectors I thnk you are talking about, you need to squeeze them from both sides, and then one end of it rotates out of position, unlocking it. But as I said before, you should not have to do that.

Get a pic if you want me to look at it.

well.... if I could squeeze my butt down there I would'nt have to disconnect anything... but since I can't, this is going to be "to be continued" untill next week sometime when I can get it into the Auto shop on post so that I have the right tools to remove the seats and things.....
After I got digging under the carpet on the front I realized all the water I was seeing in the back was coming from the front. I could clearly see the stream of water running from under the dash along the base board, under the carpet, under the passanger seat and pooling in the back. So, once I get it to the shop I am going to strip out the seats so that I can remove all the carpeting to allow it to dry properly. With the front seats out I will have no problem accessing those drain connections. That will also give me a chance to fix my seat heaters.

sounds like a good plan. I didn't realize you didn't have the seats out. that is 100% necessary.

Thats same problem I had with the front drains , that hardened hose runs down thru the dash and connects to a softer black rubbery hosethat goes to the wheel well.The connection between the hoses is loose and it come apart.so I pulled out the hose going in the dash and thread a new hose thru dash to the wheel well and joined it to the existing hose.It wasnt easy but it worked great once I got it.

is it possible to access the drain hose through the wheel well at all? Not sure that would help at all.... just curious.
