Rear Slider Window drain tubes

I own a 2007 Ram 1500 QC with a leaky rear electric sliding window.

I have read a few posts that mention "drain tubes" or "seep holes" that are supposed to drain water from the interior channel that the rear slider window slides in.

Like other 3rd Gen owners, my rear slider window is leaking past the seals, filling up the channel and then over flowing into my storage bins.

I have verified that the water is coming in at the bottom seal of the sliding window, but I cannot located the drain holes that some have mentioned in other post (some on other forum sites). I read one post that suggested creating drain holes, but if there are already drain holes present, I wish to try and open those up first.

If I could find the location of the drain tubes perhaps I could dislodge whatever is blocking them...

Update: Thanks to Cableguy I found my drain tubes. I missed his earlier post that answered my question. Like Cableguy mentions, the drain tubes are 6.5" from the outside lower corner of the rear glass (not the sliding part but the whole real window). I never saw them as they are under the black cable guide inside the tract and exit too far up under the rear glass to see. I took my air compressor and blew down past the cable guide and some trash blew out the rear of the cab. They now drain, however they do not drain quickly enough to handle any significant leaks, so I still need to locate new seals and install them.
