Inner roof lining separated

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

I just took delivery of a used MY2004 Porsche Boxster 986 with 50000 kms and when the convertible top is up, the inner roof lining sags in the front. Closer inspection reveals that a seal-like plastic that joins the inner lining to the outer canvas has cracked, and now I can touch the space between the linings if I put my hand through this plastic seal.

Interestingly I looked at the service receipt from 2007 for the 40000km service, and there is an entry for "INNER ROOF LINING HAS SEPARATED - WARRANTY REPAIR"

So it seems this has been fixed once already???? And it's broken again????

Since it is no longer under warranty, but the roof was repaired once under warranty, can I take it back to my P Centre and ask them to fix it for free since they never properly fixed it in the first place?

Or is this a common problem? I couldn't find anything similar on the forum anywhere.

Thanks for your advice.

It happens. Mostly from heat. If you peel back the soft top, you will see where the plastic trim has warped away from the frame. If you drill tiny holes on the plastic outer edge, and on the header, use bailing or stainless wire and pull tight enough so plastic trim reaches proper position. A new headliner will do the same thing eventually. BTW that top frame in made in Australia :D
