Has anyone got a idea on how headlining gets lowered, to really check on sunroof drains.
Got more water getting inside, can see that windscreen has become detached again, but
did get odd drop water, when put some down front sunroof drain on drivers side, so now
looking to drop headlining, but seems to have lip on it, when viewed downwards through
sunroof hole, making it look like your having to pull complete lining backwards, to just
drop it down a tad to check drains

You don't need to take the headlining down !
Just find the ends of the two tubes, should be somewhere close to the back of the front wheels (one at each side) then get a
Air compressor and blow air up the pipe, and should blow  the muck out, if it doesn't get a bit of still wire, like you would get
in "twin and earth" and feed it up, and then try again to blow with air.

One thing DO NOT try blowing or pushing a wire down as that could block it more

Drain pipes are free flowing with water, but also getting odd drips from
area where pipes leave sunroof opening, via headlining,  so just assuming
that where plastic pipe connect to metal pipes, in sunroof opening, is maybe
at fault, hence why thought taking headlining down would reveal if my
suspicions are right. Already got kick panels and A pillar trims off, originally
to find why headlights come on by themselves, to find water again leaking
via screen, but in taking visors off, found the drips from near roof drain pipes.

Thats helped a bit, thanks very much.  Just need to remove passenger side visor,
and central light assy, got side air bags to be wary of, but may allow space for the
sun roof drains .

Try using strimmer cutting 'wire', it's semi rigid and unlikely to pierce the drain hose..

Its more to do with the drain part of sunroof, that plastic drain
tubes connect to, that I'm trying to checkout, as in the connection
between plastic pipes and metal tubes from roof. Not sure if they
have hoseclips style, or what clips, or what the connection is, as
pipes have water running free, but still odd drip from underheadling.
