84 300dt rainwater collection system?

hey folks
why is rainwater collecting in the frame. Usually parked in the driveway w front end slightly higher than rear. When parked nose down a ton of water drains from the hole in the frame(just behind front tire and ahead of jack point). So all that water stays in the frame till its parked nose down? Anyone know where this water is getting in ? My 1st benz so I'm clueless.

Is the hole in the frame or is this one of the drains for the sun roof?

Each hood-hinge cavity drains to the front of the firewall and inturn down to the area you discribe. So that or the sunroof drain, or both.
