My 1981 300SD (W126) leaks water from the interior trim to the rear deck when my car gets wet. I have had the rear window seal fixed twice and have since determined that it is not the source of the problem. From my searches on this sight I determined that I likely had a plugged sunroof drain. I opened my sunroof and looked at the tracks, and there is a wet spot on the right track. I found the front drains and they are both clear. I was unable to locate the rear drains, which I believe are causing my problem. Does anybody know how to access these drains?

The drains to the back of the car are plugged on a rubber hose nearly at the end of the roof just in front of the rear screen. If you take away the upholstery at the rear pillar and remove the rear right handle, it should nearly be possible to get to the hoses' connection.
The other end of the rubber hose goes out of the trunk behind the bumper (just behind the wheel/fender) It may be easier to check the hose from that side...
