Default 2005 S40 Sunroof Drains

I'm getting water in the rear passenger-side footwell of my '05 S40 (non turbo) after a rain. I've cleaned the front sunroof drains, but can't see the rear ones. Does anyone have a diagram showing their locations? Since the water is collecting in the rear, I suspect that I need to get the rear drains cleared.

First thing I would do is pull the A-pillar trim and make sure the hoses are attached. They are well known to pop out of the rubber elbow by the firewall.

I've already checked the front drains. They're connected and drain nicely (after a little coercion from an air compressor). I can't see the rear ports though. Any idea how to access them?

OK. Finally got a chance to take the trunk liner out. Followed the tubes from the sunroof and found the drain ports just in front of the bumper, about a foot in from each side. Hooked up an air gun to my compressor and blew out the lines. Now, they drain great. I (slowly) poured about a gallon of water into the sunroof tracks. Drainage was good. Hope this can help others who have the same problem.
