Cadillac CTS: Where do the rear drain tubes sunroof

Customer Question

Where do the rear drain tubes for the sunroof on a 2010 CTS wagon exit ?
Mine are blocked and I would like to attempt to unblock the tubes by pushing a weed wacker cord back up through the drain pipe and then blow through with compressed air

Thanks for the diagram.
It does not zoom in enough to see the detail I need
I am not looking to take the pipe out and would like to avoid touching the rook lining if possible?
I am hoping to be able to get to the end of the pipe and push a small nylon cable back up the pipe to remove the blockage
Could you show me where the pipe exit is visible?
I have a wagon. Is the exit different when compared to a sedan?

I am not happy with this response. I have a workshop manual too which I can read from
I was hoping for a hands on Cadillac mechanic who had actually done what I was suggesting. I do not want to be charged for this

I think I was quite clear about the model and what I wanted?
Can you explain how I get to the end of the hose?Can I do it without removing any panels? Do I do it from the inside or outside the car?
