199x Ford Explorer of maybe 200x Sunroof drains???

I am sure there must be a drain for the sunroof but can someone tell me
where it is located, and where it runs?

Any history of leaks from the Explorer sunroofs or drains?

Thanks in advance
JRE

My Expedition had a nasty leak when I bought it new. At the factory they
forgot to connect one of the drain tubes. If it's the same as an Exped.
you can see them if you open the roof and look in the corners. The tubes
run across the roof and down the A-pillars. Maybe one of yours is disco's
or plugged up.

My '92 has a sun roof, but it doesn't leak. I have looked around, as
much as possible, to see if this was a factory option or an after market
item. I really would like to see if there was a panel that replaced the
glass, or at least cover it. I'm just not a sun roof kinda guy. I find it
distracting, to say the very least, ad a hazard when the sun glares behind
my glasses from this sun roof.
Any ideas, guys?

My '92 had a factory sun roof and came with a removable panel that
locked up against the glass. That removable panel was a pain in the
neck because there was no place to put it when removed. I could see
how that could easily get lost in 13 years.

If you have a round knob to turn to open the sun roof, that is how my
factory roof operated. When turned, the knob lifted up a post and
tilted the glass open. Maybe you could get lucky and find a removable
panel in a junk yard.
