Greetings,


you will have to pull the carpet retainer by the door first to get to the front drain.

Pull back the front lower insulator.Remove the hinge pillar inner insulators to gain access to the front drain hose routing area inside the hinge pillar below the I/P. Pull the front drain hose out of the front lower hinge pillar.



Here is where the rear drain runs, you have to pull the rear trim deck panel to get to it.




Let me know if I can help further, I can also upload the entire removal procedures for the front and rear. The site has been having trouble letting us upload, but I can do it all here in this box, but it will take awhile.
