Quick question, hope someone will be able to help. Does anyone know exactly where the two entrances to the rear sunroof drains are located on the 6th gen chargers (2006-2010)? I can visually see the two in the front corners, and am guessing that the two in the rear are in their respective corners as well. Also, is there somewhat of pain-free way of accessing them? Having a clogging issue in the drain that runs down passenger side of the vehicle towards the rear which is causing water to leak into the vehicle via the roof. Thanks in advance for the assistance!

Problem Solved

Located the sunroof drains after lowering the headliner. They're attached to the end of the track of the sunroof apparatus, about a foot and a half from the rear of the actual sunroof opening. If you need to clear them out in order to fix a leaking problem, using some sort of sturdy line (like galvanized steel wire) or an air compressor to blow the lines out works well. The drain tubes simply pull off of a nipple sitting at the end of the sunroof track. Try not to use too much pressure when using the air compressor or else you may do more harm than good. Also if using the steel wire method, you may want to bend the steel wire at the end a little bit before inserting it into the tube in order to ensure that you don't poke a hole in the drain tube. Depending on where the leak is coming from, you may only need to lower a portion of the headliner. To access the rear passenger side drain tube, I had to remove the rear upper C pillars, the upper B pillars, the passenger side upper A pillar, the rear grab handles, the passenger side visor swivel arm and the passenger side visor mount, and the sunroof trim. That gave me enough play in the headliner to access the drain tube easily. Sounds daunting but in reality it's not that bad. The upper C pillars just pull out (may have to yank pretty hard but they'll be fine), the rear grab handles are held in by two screws each (you'll need a T25 Torx bit to remove) and an electrical connection (which you may need a flathead screw driver in order to gain some leverage and pry it out). The B pillars are held in by three screws where the upper and lower portions meet, the seatbelt (which you will need a T50 Torx bit to remove), and a few clips (by pulling you will release them). The sunroof trim just pulls out and the visor parts are easily removed using a T20 Torx bit. The A pillars simply pull out but also require you to rotate a black clip near the top of the pillar 90 degrees in order to remove them. Hope this helps anyone with the same issue!
