Default Sunroof leaking, hlp plz

So i guess this be just a 'typical' sunroof leak. but who knows.

I tried a little searching and found ALOT of people who has leaky sunroofs. So i checked it out. I realized that they usually point out the drain tubes of the sunroof. The problem is that these threads dont tell me where they drains tube go or where they are. The writers usually already checked the drains or people tell him/her to check the drains. But i haven't read anything about where they are in the car.

p.s. the car is a 97 sc2 manual

Drains ;
With the moonroof open, you can find the drains about 3 to 4 inches from the front ,one on each side, it is my understanding that the other end exits the car right behind the front kick panels,with a filter assembly there.
Think it looks like a small fire hydrant, this is what i read the other day here.

a hose leads away from each corner of the sunroof assembly, and down the A and C pillars. Bottom of the front hoses is behind the trim piece and a bit of rubber by where the front occupants' feet sit, you can access it by removing the trim piece that goes under the doors and by your feet. The bottom of the rear hoses is hiding behind the side carpeting for the trunk.

i thought moonroofs are sunroofs?

i removed the panel near the passenger side in the front. Then i this rubber cover. Once i did that, i was a big hole, about the size of a deck of cards. There a took that goes from top to bottom. The bottom is seems to go through the floor. Is this the drain tube? If so, do i have to take the body part on the bottom of the door to get to the end of the tube?
