Battery Compartment Drain


Recommended Posts

While checking my pollen filter on my 99 996 C2 I was cleaning debris from my battery compartment and pulled some from the drain on the bottom (pass side,behind batt). Poured water into it and it was plugged. Tried to snake with wire to no avail. Was hesitant but pressurized with air and heard a pop. Water drained but is coming out under bottom pan of car in several spots. Is this normal or did I blow the hose apart at a connection somewhere and should I do surgery just for this. I never saw it drain before so I don't know if it should come out in one spot. My diagram is vague. Thanks

Let me rephrase the whole question. What's the easiest way to get to the tube?

It should only drain from one spot. Not 100% sure about the passenger side, but I know that on the driver's side, you can access and reset the drain up into its hole by removing the rear of the wheel well liner.

Regards, Maurice.

Thanks for the help Maurice. There are two drains on the driver side from the battery or cowl compartment, both coming out the wheel arch and openly accessible.The one from the floor goes through a grommet and one on the side with a little flap.The passenger side has just one that goes on the inside of the frame, right behind the front suspension and you must pull off the front under-body panel . All that work and the drain was clean. There is a little nylon bracket on the end that it was tied to and yes this drain just flows onto under-body panel and there is no particular hole for it. Water comes out the lowest points. They must be one piece because my U.K. manual says to blow them out. Interestingly it says to blow the two accessible from the wheel arch back into the cowl and the other from the top. These are important as if you don't keep these clean rain water or car washing can pool in there. Thanks again, Robert.
