I've cleared the drains in the front wheel wells. But there is lots of water sloshing in the rocker board area. I can't see the rocker drains everyone shows. I'm starting to think it's behind a trim piece. I'm going to try and remove sone stuff and find it today. Thus us an atrocious design. Surprised there isn't a class action/recall for this huge design failure. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

2011 Cayenne base. Got sloshing water sills when driving. I've cleared out the drains behind the front wheel inserts, but no water came out. Can someone show me where the other plugs (likely lower in the sill area) so I can drain all this water? My Cayenne doesn't have the spots I see everywhere on the earlier models. Thanks!
I am positive there are some differences. The fuel lines look different too compared to your images. I have a 2011 3.6Lv6. Didn't the V6 get a displacement increase for 20011? This is the Volkswagen vr6, right? Correction, the increase from 3.2 to 3.6L came in 2008.
I tried to do this and thought most of it was pretty easy. Until I tried to get the 3 large triple square bolts out across the bottom. First one was simple, second one was easy to loosen, but I couldn't get it all the way out because it was blocked by some black tube that runs horizontal to the intake in close. I loosened it all the way out, but there was no clearance to pull it out. This part was not mentioned in your DIY write up, I'm wondering what year Cayenne you did this on? Mine is 2011 and it seems some stuff looks a bit different than in your pix. The third bolt near the back, I could never find it and I have a video camera snake. I have a cluster of electronics stuff in tight and low and was wondering if that was blocking access. Again, I did not see mention of this in the DIY. Took me about 15 min to put everything back after I failed at that point. I guess I might have to take it somewhere which is very frustrating. I haven't required a service to repair any vehicle I've owned in 20 years. Serious buzzkill. I have all the tools also I must be missing something about removal or my vehicle has some differences. Any ideas before I take this thing to get reamed out for a $25 part (ridiculous). Thanks for the write up. It was very helpful!
