How many drainage channels from sunroof? Vibe 07

Post by Jammin81 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 2:37 pm

Hello hello!

How many drainage holes are there from the sunroof on a vibe 07?

I found 2 holes at the front and cleared those (I found a bottle cap wedged in the left side channel) and decided I should do the back ones just in case?!

I found the front two but assume there are back ones also. I opened the rear wheel arch and the plastic wiring covers on both back wheels but didn’t see the drainage tubes.

Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance!

There are four sunroof drains. One in each corner in the sunroof. The front drains come out behind the front wheels. The rear drains come out in front of the rear wheels.

Thanks for the reply! I removed both back wheels and also the plastic coverings from the wheel wells.

I couldn’t find the tubes? I also looked in the manual but for some reason it doesn’t have anything about drainage.

I don’t suppose you have any posts or previous pictures that show location? I found some older posts here but coming up short for days.

I’m still getting water coming in and cleaned the front two holes throughly. I also removed the plastic panels from under the wipers and cleaned that drainage Chanel.

Any advice is appreciated!!!

Good luck with the ex pipe!

I removed back wheels and both plastic panels and still didn’t find them!

I got mad I had wasted over an hour trying to figure it out and replaced everything and posted here.

Thanks also
