Default 09 Vue sunroof drain hose outlet

Hello everyone,

I have an 09 Vue that has a leaking sunroof drain hose on the driver side somewhere below the dashboard. Water is pooling inside a void space behind an electrical connnector of some sort inside the body on the left side. When I pour water into the sunroof drain, nothing comes out the bottom and this void space fills....then drains slowly onto my floorboard. Everything is dry from the sunroof to the dash, and I zip-tied the hose to the drain on the sunroof to make sure. I also snaked a weed whacker line down the hose and it kept feeding through, so I know it's clear....just not sure where it is coming out.

Does anyone know how/where the drain tube exits the vehicle and how to access it? I put an inspection mirror inside the void space but can't see where the hose leads.

Default Re: 09 Vue sunroof drain hose outlet

Was hoping somebody would post a diagram for you from the Vue service manual which I sadly don't own. Perhaps stop by a local autoparts store and look it up if you can find a Haynes manual for the Vue/Equinox on the shelf.

In lieu of that, don't know why your weed wacker line down the sun roof drain tube wouldn't expose the exit point within the vehicle...if say you have a breach under the instrument panel. You say the line is clear, therefore why doesn't the weed wacker line exit the drain tube which not only shows 0 blockage but also where the drain tube ends and where the line exits the drain tube?
