I will look through all of them. I looked through the one Jason posted and thats the one that confused me as I can't find the drain tube.

I remember doing this on my LR3 years ago, what a complete pain in the ass it was, it took me a weekend to get it done.

If you are going through all of this trouble, REALLY make sure you open up the ends (or cut off the crimp entirely) so you don't ever have to do it again.

I just need to figure out where the stupid drain is on the drivers side. Sadly/thankfully it never rains here

Yeah, we could really use the rain though....

I remember it being a total bitch to get to the driver's side. It was way up underneath the plastic inner fender. It was traumatic enough that I have blocked it out and have night sweats now.

I just skimmed over this, sorry if this has been covered. First you should open the sunroof and pour some water into the sunroof drain pan at the front corners. If it doesn't drain, then you know it is clogged. If it is clogged, remove both vents on the front fenders. There are four tabs that hold them in place and can be a pain to get loose. Once you have those out, pull out the rubber intake hose a little bit so you expose the black piece of foam. Throw the foam into the trash. Behind that foam you should see the exit nipple of the drain tube. Blow some air (not a lot of pressure) into the nipple and wait for the water that is sitting in the tray to pour out.

if the nipple isnt there on one side, it gets more complicated. I haven't done that myself, so I can't add anything, but it is mentioned in the instructions Russell posted.

There is no vent on the driver's side. That's the whole problem. The tube is in the same place, but without the air intake vent you can't get to it real easy.

Are we talking LR3 or LR4? LR4 has two air intakes.

Yes that does suck, especially on the passenger side if it is a LR3 since you need to removed the CJB to get to the tube. There is more room on an LR4.

Doh! Yeah, I forgot we were talking about the LR4.... I always thought that other vent was cosmetic, does it actually do something?

Yes, it is the intake for the driver's side air box. LR4 has two air filters.
