Easy bro, just open up the side vane and you'll see the lid that covers the drain hole. Use a coat hanger or something... problem solved

Where is the water coming from under the seats in my 2001 MR2 Spyder?

Your roof is leaking there are a couple of plugs that are under the seat that will help in draining the water. Move the seats all the way forward and put the backs tilted forward you will see a piece of plastic that looks like a drain that's one of the covers be gentle as they will break best bet is to get a repair manual for this type of repair as instructions can be done in several ways also then you are going to have to find the leaks you may not see them when driving as they are probably rolling down the back into the roof storage area but if you spray one area at a time also tape around the edges and see where they get the seal broken if its just a leak with the roof suggestion is to let pro handle it as they can restitch or possibly glue top. But it is definitely the roof you can also try the drains in the jamb you will see them as they are just rubber or plastic plugs again be gentle or you will have to buy new ones.

ZZW30 Toyota MR2 Water comes trough the softtop on both sides

I had the same Problem on my 2000 MR2 Spyder. If you gently pop off the black vents on the outside you will see the drain. With your top up feel back in the inside window well you will find the other end of that drain. I took the shop vac on the outside of that drain (the end that was behind the vent) and sucked it out while sticking a coat hanger (straightened out) down the drain from the inside. Then took the hose and flushed it out from the inside! Take a bucket of water and dump it over the outside of your roof and watch it drain! Works great and found out this is a standard problem with them!

Water in the storage area behind the seats in my 2003 MR2 Spyder. Has convertible. I believe the drains might be plugged but don't know where the drains to check!

There is a couple of plastic pieces you need to remove inside the storage bins. Two side pieces to be exact, just a couple of pins. Here is a link to more detailed instructions.

The drains on my sunroof leak when it rains and water comes inside the vehicle. How do I unclog the drains?

A big leak with that model is the drain tray in the rear under glass has broken loose. To check the drains, park vehicle on an down grade, open the glass and pour a cup of water in on each side and the water should come out the front, Turn the vehicle around to check the rear the same way.
