Sunroof Drain - Drivers Side leak

Hey all,
I've got a leak on the driver's side A-pillar approx 1/3 of the way down from the top.
The interior A-pillar panel is removed, head liner detached slightly to check for leaks around the windshield. Did not find any leaking seal around windshield. Leak appears to be coming from inside the Apillar itself, and dripping out from a upper and lower joint in the pillar.

That got me to check the sunroof drain. I poured water down the driver's side drain and that made the leak worse, so I think I've found the source.

Now, I've noticed that the water still pours out from underneath the car, and the hose is still connected to the spigot of the roof and doesn't appear to be leaking.

I think it may be rubbed through or cut partially inside the Apillar. So I thought that I'd try removing the hose to inspect. I wanted to attach a line to the bottom of the hose prior to pulling out, to allow me to pull it back down trough afterward, but I can't find the bottom end.

Does anyone know where this hose goes, I've removed the inner wheel well and still can't find it.

On a second note, I tried just pulling from the top to see if I could pull out enough just to see the suspected hole, but it would not budge.

Having a drain problem also, but I think the hose is plugged, wondering where the bottom end is.

The drains on my 05 sedan are just rear of each wheel. I just tested mine trying to locate a leak (didn't find it )
