2002 l300

Hello, I have a 2002 Saturn L300, my sons car. (that's why I just found out about this!) haha The passenger side front and rear floors are soaking wet, standing water under the carpet! We did get good rain last nite. My first thought is the sunroof is leaking! I think i'm right because it looks like it doesn't seal tightly at all. In the front of the sunroof it looks like there is plastic that channels water away to the corners and there's a hole, or opening in the corners. Where does this drain? If that's what it is? Is it possible that it's dumping the water into the passenger floor? The drivers side is dry. Thanks for the help, any is appreciated!

You are on the right track. Those are drains. There are plastic drain tubes that are SUPPOSED to be attatched to them. They channel water behind the ft wheels and behind the rear wheels. You can check the by pouring water down them and see if they drain. To access them you will need to pull the pillar trims and drop down the headliner to reattatch them.

Re: 2002 l300

Hello again, down on the passenger side, just in front of door is an electrical box. Just below and to the side a bit is a hole that was covered with a black sticky patch. Like right on the bottom of the post. The water is running right out of that when i pulled that patch back. I dont see any tube in there but you can't see much. It looks like just a spot where steel work comes together. Would this be where the tubes should be going? I haven't poured any water yet down the tubes because its been raining out and don't want the sunroof open that long in the rain. I did take of the front pillar trim to look and i see part of the side airbag. Is that going to be a problem for me? Dont wanna pull the headliner and get nailed by an airbag!
thanks again for the help.

If you a worried about the air bag, disconnect the battery and wait 10 min for capacitors to discharge, then remove the a pillar trim to check the hose and drop the r/f of the headliner.
