I too am having issues with the passenger side sunroof drain on my newly purchased 13 LR4. I get some water out of the tube on the ground but 75% of it is going inside the car, is there a common spot where the water can escape to tube?
Also does anyone know if there is an easy way to remove the accumulated water inside the wiring chase in the sill? I've been using a turkey baster with a hose duct taped to the end ;)

Same issue, just discovered wet front carpets on Dr and Pass side while checking all the connectors in the lower A pillar panel for my Charging Fault. Wondering now if the charging fault is due to moisture in the connectors.

The sunroof drains in the front fender area can be replaced with a VOLVO part. It is a 100% exact fit.
The OEM drains can deteriorate over time and leak.
The VOLVO part # is: 30753148 ( you will need 2)
WAY cheaper than the Land Rover part.

yep - We park outside and they get clogged easily. **** whacker line usually does the trick.

Roverrange: What is the advantage of the Volvo part vs Land Rover OEM?

timc930: How do you blow out the lines with air? The plastic trim does not allow a positive seal to the down tube.
