Default Water Leak

Hey everyone, it seems I have developed a leak, after I noticed that as I turned, water dropped all over me. All of the water is coming through the DIC screen, so all of the buttons are wet. The roof liner isn't wet at all, so it's all coming through the DIC. Has anybody had water leak through this before, and where should I look for a bad seal first?

Cortesjr suggested what I was going to say, check the sunroof drains. I had that happen to me ONCE. And my drains were not plugged that I could find. Best I could figure, I had the car parked in a space where the front end was pointing down and there was a horrible down pour that night. I think the water around the sun roof overwhelmed the drains.

Hey Maniac, I did as he suggested today and tried to clear out the drains. I saw a video of a guy with a Monte who had his sunroof drain tubes down near the parking brake, however I did not find mine there - it was sticking out of the door through a rubber grommet thing. I shot some compressed air through both the sunroof and the tube and used a pipe cleaner to clear any blockages. The passenger side drained no problem, the door tube is still a little slow, but I think I may have fixed it for now. I noticed that if I bent the tube downwards a bit it would drain out fine. Maybe it is kinked a little on the inside. I can't see the other side of the tube so I don't know. I'll report back after it rains.
