2 - Remove the plastic splach shields behind the front wheels - you should see a plastic pipe leading from the sun roof drain channels down to the pipes - they block up at the bottom and can be cleaned out by inserting a piece of wire or hard flexible plastic up the pipe - the water should then flow out

Remember the bolts securing the plastic splash shields are torx bolts.

Hope this helps.

It definitely helps!!! Thank you so much. We will attempt this in the morning.
