Default Sunroof rear drain tubes ends at????

I have a 91 SL2 4 door with a sunroof. Yes it leaks and the passenger rear side drain tube is clogged up. I blew some compressed air through it and thought it cleaned it out. I tried to blow through it but it is still clogged. Where is the end of it??? I found the front ones on both sides and cleaned the slits on the bottom, but I have no idea where the rear ones end up. I have pulled all the plastic interior pieces out, the back seat and looked under the rear wheel well plastic piece. Someone please clue me in where to find the end of it so I can clean it out.
Thanks in advance,
Neil

If it's like my 97 SC2 they are inside the trunk. The ends of the tubes are pressed into the side panels behind the rear wheels.

Figured it out after reading some archives to point me in the right direction. On my 91, all I had to do was pull the rear fender top attachment bolt by the rear door. I broke the plastic rivet if that is what attaches at the very top. I did not know it had a bolt head inside the rubber head when I started. When I removed that one bolt I could pull back the top of it and there was a back plastic enclosure with the rubber tube end piece in it. I was able to pull it all out from there.
My problem was the tube had a S bend in it and was collapsed on itself. When I blew compressed air it would open up under the pressure but return to the S shape a totally close after that. Loks like they had too much slack in the rubber hose when they installed it and it collapsed on itself.

Nicely done..I applaud your effort. Did you replace the hose or were you able to reposition it?

I was able to cut off the crimped part and then slide it back into the end piece which is a couple of inches long and it holds it straight where the walls may have memory in them from being kinked. I was able to cut it back a cuple of inches.

that's only 2 out of 4 drain tubes... the others end behind the trim in the front seat foot wells.

Good pictures and info,
Thanks richpin06 for the actual pics. Tells the whole story.
Low Saturn, On a search I did not see that but it would of pointed me right to them.
Thanks to everyone
Seems like they need to make a sticky in the forum on the drain tube locations or a sunroof/moonroof section.

I tried running a wire through the rear drain tube to clear it up. But the wire would not go all the way through. The tube was obviously kinked. Fortunately, I had some stiff tubing left over from a reverse osmosis water filtration system I installed. This tubing was less than half the diameter of the drain tubing. I inserted the reverse osmosis leftover tubing into the Saturn drain tubing and this should prevent it from kinking again. I hope someone finds this post useful. Seems like there are very few Saturns left on the road now days. Every week, I get updates from Pick and Pull telling me there are a Saturns that just arrived in their yard. :-)
