Here's a little follow-on suggestion to Bruce McReynold's excellent idea.
Drain tubes of this sort have a tendency to grow fungus in their dark,
moist insides. In fact this can even be the cause of the blockage. After
you've mechanically unblocked the tube with nylon weedwhacker line, pour
a solution of household bleach down the tube to kill any remaining
fungus. (Don't splash any bleach on your headliner or upholstery!)
This is standard practice when unblocking the drain tubes in household
