    Sunroof drain tubes

    Does anyone know if they are accessable from below/anywhere ( not in the roof! ) to clear?
    Like the aircon drains?

    Dunno about the Disco, but on the P38A, I slid a length of electrical building wire up from below. It's stiff but flexible.

    Many times on many Discovery forum sites I've seen people asking "where does the sunroof drain pipe end and empty from?" and never seen a clear answer. Well, in solving my A-pillar flooding problem I have now found out, at least for my 2004 td5 Disco. The front sunroof drain pipe runs down the inside of the A-pillar and empties into the bottom end of the A-pillar, emptying through the A-pillar drain hole. The plastic pipe does not show itself out of the A-pillar. To get a hold of the bottom end of the drain pipe on mine requires removal of the passenger side footwell kickpanel, removal of the grommit for the door wires that pass through the A-pillar and then fishing the tube out with a bent wire. Good luck.

    If the drain hole is blocked by external mud like mine was (it's at the back of the A-pillar above a mud catching ledge , not at the front like earlier models) then the A-pillar fills up with water, that runs out unseen through the wiring harness hole behind the kick-panel and soaks the carpet and underfoam.

    This sounds like you might have a very tiny leak from the front windscreen that even won't show when you are driving in the rain (by some reasons) but ONLY leaks when you park the car under the rain.

    How is your heater?
    Don't know about your vehicle, but on our D1 the heater sprang a leak and dumped green coolant in the driver's footwell out the back of nowhere. We cut off the coolant supply and ran without a heater.
    Another possibility is the overflow drain for the aircon being blocked.
    Good luck.

    Look behind the rear lights apparently, a thicker tube than the axle breather.

    Sorry, you're out of time. Pedro breathes a sigh of relief.
