How do the sunroof drain tubes run?

I had to do some updates on my Edge Insight the other day and is was drizzling out. When I pulled the Insight out of my A pillar mount the bottom of the mount was all full of water. I dried out out and it refilled several times. I am just wondering where the water is coming from. I am getting a condensation buildup on the inside of the windshield as well so I need to do something about this. Any ideas?

I have also blown air down the tubes on a Mountaineer I had. I am also getting condensation buildup on the inside of my windshield. It could be the drains on the moonroof being plugged up or slow to drain. Their should be 4 drains at each corner of the moonroof. Front two down the A pillars and the rear ones down between the doors. I intend to look for my drain tubes under the truck and maybe find something resembling pipe cleaner to push up. You should see some water drain from the tubes if you pour some water in the track with the glass open. Blowing air down the tubes on the Mountaineer left a lot to be desired. The build up seems to be very greasy. I poured simple green in from the top but a degreaser would be a better idea.

You might want to look and see if its your windshield leaking. Mine leaked in the left corner which would run down the a pillar and also right above rearview mirror. Just a suggestion.

a windshield leaking is a very common cause for this concern. I would suspect that first
