I found the water leak


Recommended Posts

This is an old picture of my transmission. Few months back I had so much water under the driver's seat which resulted in the burn out of my central locking system unit. After $2k+ of repairs, water still leaked. Porsche never fixed the leak. I checked under the seat few weeks after the repairs and there was fresh water under there. I couldn't figure out where it was coming from at the time. So I started outting towels under there to soak the water.

A month ago I found the source of the leak. The arrow in the picture is pointing at this material (what is it called?). It has a hole in it. When ever I wash the car, the water , which is supposed to go through the drain point, goes through that hole and under my seat. I put some of that Blue Omega stuff that seals. But still water leaks but not as much as before. Does anyone know how to replace this material?

P.S: the material I'm refering to is called a Pan/Water Drip. Part # 986 561 805 03

Thanks for the link that's very useful. When you wash the car water goes through the hole in the picture. This hole is part of the Boxster design. Then the water goes through the drain point. In my case, the water was going theough the other man made hole and directly under the driver's seat. You guys better check your Pan/Water Drip for holes specially on the driver's side, trust me you don't want to go through the same thing I went through.

I don't think I want Dieter to work on my car. The 2 drain holes under the top do not have a plastic umbrella. The pic of the plastic 'umbrella' is the plug for the hole where the spinlocks go if you do not have spinlocks. When I see a car missing one I look under the top and I usually find it there - just like Dieter did. Somehow it flys out of the hole and ends up under the top.

The first pic is from their site with a yellow line to the 'umbrella.' The last picture is a local Boxster with a yellow line to the head of the plug stuck in the hole.

I have this water leakage through the broken holes at the liner foam, to my lucky ... I fix it with a water proof canvas (cut to size) and lie it under to channel the H2O to the drain holes ...

As attach you can clearly the water proof canvas ... :D

Good Luck ....

GTO:

From your photo, it is difficult to imagine how water that ends up on the rearmost surfaces of the foam liner would not find its way UNDER the canvas patch that you installed.

Wouldn't it make more sense to put the canvas patch itself underneath the foam liner, and seal it to the underside of the foam liner with some silicone adhesive sealant?
