Looking for pictures of drain holes in cabrio A-pillars

Hi All, Iím familiar with the leaks that people describe on both sides of cabrio cabins where the top meets the windscreen, but am having a hard time finding the drains as described by Rodney.

Anyone have any pictures of the drain holes, or have the time to snap a pic of theirs? Looking to fix mine before heavy rain!

I know I posted photos of this some time ago, bat damned if I can find them! Since I no longer have the CLK, I can't retake them. Basically, if you look at the top of the rubber gasket with the roof open, you'll see what looks like a funnel - that's one. The other is harder to see, but it's part of the rubber seal that runs against the door glass itself. If the glass is down, this is open.

Iím having some pretty significant leaking and would like to take care of it, maybe I can take some pictures in a bit and get comment.

Would the positioning of the windows (the 10mm bolt under the door for the window track) cause this? Itís coming down the outside of the window until it hits a complete saturation point and starts dripping on the inside!

Been raining the past few days. Can you tell itís at the forefront of my mind? Lol

Just got a pic and wanted to share- any chance someone could circle the drain holes on this pic?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, I really appreciate that. How would you recommend to clear these out? Iíve seen someone mention a straw or compressed air- looking to try and clear these out before it starts raining this week, was in a typhoon last week and said enough! Lol!

I clean mine using compressor. I attach 1/4 OD tube to compressor blow gun and push the tube tight into the drain hole. Also, there are drain holes (one each side) near the base of the A pillar, where the "triangle" holding the side mirrors meets the A pillar.
