Hi, Youve basically answered your own question....sunroof drains are blocked....do mine once a year with strimmer twine melted over at the end so not to damage the pipe ...warm soapy water in the chanel and work twine up and down the drains until water flows out nicely underneath.....

My rear drivers floor isn't getting wet yet but after rain when I open the door a flood of water comes out and I don't have a sunroof and the door seal looks fine :?
