Cleaning out drain channel on sliding windows

I mentioned to Reace that we had experienced a leak in the passenger-side sliding window by the dinette in our Escape 21 (2015), but unplugged the drain port on the exterior and it fixed it. He suggested prying the window guide up and cleaning underneath to clear out the mud and debris that accumulate there over time. Otherwise the water wouldn't necessarily drain easily to the drain port. I did this and thought I would share the pics with labels. The drain channel under the guide did have accumulations that threatened to block it in a couple of areas, so I'm glad I cleaned it.
