The drains start almost in the corners - the front ones at the front of the front sunroof and the rear ones at the rear of the rear sunroof./ You need to fully open both the glass panels to see them properly. I have poked the springy net curtain wires through the pipes from each of the 4 corners on my 1998 Scenic. They appear to be clear but looks like I may have to take the front wheels off and remove part of the wheel-arch liners just to make double-sure. I'm only getting water into the front passenger footwell when it rains from somewhere just below the glove box; appears to be falling from the heater matrix which makes me think its drain hole is blocked. If I pour a bucket of water onto the mesh heater inlet, it doesn't come out from underneath the car, which is worrying. I didn't dare pour another bucket-full in !
