If you can get to the holes I don't see any harm in enlarging them slightly. Another solution is to buy a left hand battery cover and you'll never have leaves in the compartment ever again. It was standard on the Japanese Skylines so availability is pretty good.

Thanks Blue, It does have the cover but the leaves still slip under it somehow. I was able to drill a 1 1/4 hole on both drivers and passengers side. I hope the cures the problem.

Just be sure to protect that exposed metal or it will rust itself to a MUCH larger hole lol.

Blue, thanks for that. I had always wondered why the cover on the driver side had a battery icon on it. Now I know! Looks like the POs of my car DID do something useful besides changing the oil on time and the clutch!

Question. What kind of rate of water can the sunroof drain tubes handle? Reason why I ask is that I am getting water on the passenger side front floor area. Took the car to a dealer, and he said it was the drain tubes. Paid him to fix the tubes, and then went on a trip down south. Then I discovered water again on the rug. Took the car to another dealer, and he said the problem is a leaking gasket on the sunroof. The car is 11 years old. He says you can't buy the gasket separately, that you have to buy a whole new glass roof, to the tune of $1800! Is this BS?

The whole idea is that the drainage tubes are designed to carry away water that's managed to get past the sunroof gaskets. That's why I'm wondering how much water can the tubes handle. When you folks say you test the tubes by pouring water into the open roof, how much water are we talking about, and how quickly?

Thanks!

After I did my mods the flood of water stopped. However I still had a little water leaking from the sun roof drains. I ended up removing the plastic drain that goes through the firewall and putting in a piece of copper tubing sticking out a inch or so and then sealing the opening with silicone. Works great and will not stop up again.
