Any tips on clearing out the rear sunroof drains if you don't have shop air to blow the lines clear?

What's the best way to use the 3mm trimmer line for the rear sunroof drains?

Yesterday I was chatting to a neighbour who was cleaning his 3-series BMW; he'd just discovered an unknown (to him) feature. I had to take a picture!



The scuttle drains flow off each side to near the bonnet hinges to a pair of filter baskets that are designed to catch leaves/debris and can be easily removed by hand for cleaning/clearing.
If only Audi had thought of that.....
