    I have not yet...where would I find those? I can do it now since the carpet and console isn't in yet.

    Where the brake and clutch fluid reservoirs are. Look near them in that space, in the low spot, there should be a hole. You can poke it with a pipe cleaner or a straightened out metal coat hanger. Wiggle it down in there to poke out any debris or trapped fluid. Follow it down to see where it goes.

    Just to confirm what you probably already know, you need to use a double-sided adhesive pad made (by 3M, I think) specifically for mirror attachment, as any other type of adhesive will be either too rigid (leading to a cracked windshield with thermal expansion/contraction) or else flexible enough but not sticky enough.

    I found them both. Leaves were covering one of them. The other was clear and easy to spot. I poured water down both and they drained where they were supposed to...under the car and not in the car. Thanks for the help!

    Well, I was lucky...I found another Montecarlo mirror with good glass and a good rubber glass retainer that I was able to swap onto my mirror. No removal was necessary.

    You found them (drain hoses): good. If you don't replace them NOW, while accessible: not
    good. Don't trust that original, ancient, thin rubber to last! Do the htr. hose NOW!
