This all assumes someone who knows the whereabouts of the tubing replies!

once someone can tell me where they are. I looked earlier today.
saw on the 93 legacy post to try to put some water up there and look for slow drain. it was rainy great ghosts the other day.

will take a look in the sunlight.
tried looking at tonight again. the rear most corners are under the eaves where the moonroof goes under roof. those might be an issue. going to get up early and go buy some compressed air (computer style)
will avoid using my 200mph leaf blower. although tempting to try.
just tired of water pouring into the rear thru the right rear seatbelt assembly in roof

driver's side OK.
its the moonroof. can not see the drains. passenger side, when you pour water in the channel dumps it right out the passenger rear seatbelt in ceiling or rear gate hinges in roof. since i have run out of time and must go to colorado for son's wedding. will put big bucket in outback to drain into. grrrrrrr.
this is total bs. 2d time, now must drop ceiling to get to this one. of course if i pay the dealer i'm out 125, if i do it, out hours. well we'll see if i can get the miata running and this too.
out til later this week
thanks to all who are helping.

I would definately guess, based on your info, that the tube is loose from the sunroof assembly. You are going to have to drop at least half of the headliner to get in there. Most sunroofs have a nipple at the drains which is part of the sunroof assembly. The tubes then fit over the nipple and have a simple pinch type clamp to make sure it stays.
Once you get it fixed, get water running thru it and locate where the water is discharging under the car. These are the locations you want to check occasionally to make sure the crap isn't building up and clogging.
Let us know how you make out.
