Clogged sunroof drain
Hole mystery - Posted by Stevenlesser

Well it tuns out that a lot of the rust I'm fighting; driver side floor board, rocker panels, may be due to the leaky top. I found the front holes, I tried to wire them clear to drain but have an obstruction. Are the other end of the holes the bottom end of the front drain holes visible in the front wheel wells? Say if I turn the wheel all the way to the passenger side? How about those back holes, I didn't spot the back set of drain holes. Does the roof need to come out of the car to see these? How about the rear bottom end, where can I spot it? I sent pics to the fellow recommended for the weatherstripping but didn't hear back, and tried the English vw guy. I'll have to send pics with a measuring tape over the roof. Seems like the sun roof repair is vital to the car coming back on line. Is there a way to put phone pics in these notes to share the fun?

The bottom of the front drains are on the underside of the rocker panels, about an inch back from the front fender lip. They are about 1.5 inches wide and face the inside of the car. The rear drains are also on the underside of the rocker panels. There is a reference to drain holes in Section 13 of the 1960 Shop Manual.
