I looked myself after a post was put up about a month ago. They should all 4 be at each corners, use a good flashlight and take your time looking.
What I did was used a some water poured very little but enough inside the sunroof on each side to make sure that they weren't crack. They weren't thank god for garages in the winter time down South!
WHat I just described might sound crazy but give it a shot if you like.
If it helps please tell me and if you got some new tricks as well.

Guys & gals,
can anyone tell me where exactly are the openings for the sunroof drain holes located? I looked for drain holes, but
couldn't find any. I tried to thread a bit of weed whacker line starting from the end of the
tubes, in order to find the opening in the sunroof bay, but it stopped after about 2 feet, on both
sides. So either they are plugged or the roof was blocking the line. I had the roof in the full open position, slid all the way back.

Shortly after I purchased the car I noticed the rear carpet on the driver side was pretty well soaked, so I'm hoping to find the cause.
