2014 Model S - panoramic roof leak

I have a 2015 Model S P85D with sliding panoramic sunroof. I just started getting a minor leak coming from the rear driver side dome light. It happens when I take it through the carwash (about 5-10 water drops). Have not tested yet in rain. The front two drain tubes are cleaned out and drain perfectly.

Is it maybe the rear roof drain tubes? If so, where are they located? The seal on the fixed (rear) glass portion is sagged a few millimeter on the driver side by about 8-10 inches. I have not brought into SC yet and wanted to see if there was an at home fix I should try first. It is out of warranty.

Thanks everyone.

From what I have read, 2015 model year they changed the sunroof design mid-year. If your car has the anchor doors for a roof rack that are in the middle of the side roof panel, you have a version 2.1. If the anchor doors align on the edge of the roof side panel, you have a version 1.

If the front drains are clear, most of the posts seem to say this is something that requires removal and resealing the glass roof, and version 1 roofs are very difficult to get off without damaging the side roof panels which are not made anymore, so an upgrade (read money) to 2.1 is usually done when fixing any issues (this is why the redesign occurred). It also sounds like a process that is best handled at the service center. Search the forum for leaking sunroof, and you can see what others have experienced. Perhaps someone who has experienced this first hand will comment.
