You can try using an air compressor to blow everything out

I think they go out somewhere around the rear wheel wells?

I know when they got backed up on my Prelude I remember them being there and accessing the end of the tube from the trunk. Pull back the trunk liner and you should be able to see the end of the tube going through the side of the car to drain outside.

Sunroof leak

This is so common a problem a class action settled against Audi where owners who paid for clogged drain repairs or had water damage got 100% of their money back and free damage repairs. We are bringing identical case for Acura, BMW, Mercedes and Lexus owners and expect same results. Send me an email or call 1-800-279-6996 if you're out of pocket for repairs or had water damage to make a claim. Jos. Santoli, Esq.
